Ok, since I live in a very warm climate, I though that a bunch of light colored ties (e.g,. pink, yellow, sky blue etc.) would be pretty sensible considering that most of the year the sun is shiiiiiining. After some experimentation, however, I must admit that I just don't get it. Light colored tie just seems completely off to me in any context, except maybe than drinking mojitos on the beach, in which case I wouldn't be wearing any tie to begin with. So I'm interested to know more about the application and history, if any, of the light colored tie. It does not appear to me that this is something that sits particularly well with the simple classic look. I mean, it's fine, but it's kinda "Eh..." to my eye.
