Yes, yes...wear blue jackets all the time.
@heldentenor I think the red tie and the purple PS are doing this
I might have gone with something more like this... I think.
Good call, CM--what would you think about forest green square with burgundy tie?
I bet you it could probably work, but you'd have to be careful about looking like Christmas.
I combine olive and burgundy often.
I think olive and bluish burgundy goes together quite nicely. Forrest green and reddish burgundies are far more problematic IMO.
Hmm...Maybe light brown/dark olive is the optimal non-white square with red burgundy ties. Preferences between these:
@heldentenor it's hard to say. The tie looks like a very red burgundy from the pics but I don't know if that's simply the camera over contrasting the image. I might give the first square a try but I'd also want to be careful not to overemphasize the contrast by wearing another bright item. I don't know, maybe I'm going off the deep end. Just goes to show why reddish ties are so challenging though.
Elegant, if rather somber. And I always enjoy your watches.
Thanks Andy, much appreciated. Yes, I should wear my others but this watch ticks all the boxes...
Sombre too, I would have to agree. I was working for Her Majesty today in Crown Court so took the time to breathe in the country air on the way in to the city

Very nice SS. I've given you shit in the past for your more 'out there' fits (although I do like a few of your flamboyant touches). This one is comparatively demure for your style but no less admirable.
