    I think the spoilered full body gives a pretty good impression of the shirt. It's a pale purple. I was going for a jewel tone color scheme.

    There are self tie bows that you only need to tie once, then take on and off utilizing a clasp.

    This one is from Charvet but there are other makers as well.

    I like that tie alot. it is a really nice goldrod color where most yellow ties are too yellow.

    but i think the white square is very stark in this combo and my eye is drawn directly to it.

    Thanks. What colour would you have gone for in the square?

    Btw, it's cream but I don't think that affects what you've written.

    Thanks for the thumbs, guys!
    Very nice, especially the jacket is great. Not a fan of the tie though, too narrow and the burgundy clashes with the red in the jacket imho.
    Bingo indeed! When you don't even notice that there are four patterns there, you've done it right. I would have still gone with plain pants though. But I'm incredibly boring, so... :nodding:
    That's a beautiful tie, are the flowers woven or printed? Either way, very nice pattern, scaling and colors.

    @Sander thanks for the feedback but I don't mind the matchiness between the burgundy and the red, it's very ok in my world. Analogous colors isn't bad if tone and texture are varied. But the tie is skinny at 3.25 inches when compared to a 4.25 inch lapel but I'd still rock it again. :D

    Thanks

    Picking one of the colors in the tie would be a basic choice (lighter blue or red is it?). A more saturated rust might be nice, but oh, you are in spring now?

    Maybe this one, judiciously puffed in the middle perhaps (just happen to have this one handy in my photos). Lighter color speaks to spring, so long as the beige doesn't clash with the yellow in the tie (similar colors but in a non complementary sort of way). Anyway, something along these lines..thinking out loud here.

    Edit: SB's square possibly? SB, nice hank, where is it from?
