    If it's a silk knit, then in the summer, I would wear it with tan and light brown jackets, though it would look fine with navy as well (also the equivalent suits). In the winter, shade into darker brown. Would add a subtle dimension to solid jackets but could also work nicely with patterned coats (e.g. checks).

    Bi-colors add a nice additional dimension to ties. I like the idea and recently picked up a navy and white one with a higher contrast between the two colors than in the one you posted, I think.

    your example is more of an olive color so I think it would work in summer as a lighter green but just as well in fall. I say go for it.

    @Henry Carter had a really wonderful bi-colour green knit a while ago. I believe @nabilmust posted it once.
    Unfortunately it was sold out before I even found out it existed [​IMG]

    I realise it's not green, but that's the closest I've got to a bi-colour knit like the one referenced in @TweedyProf 's post.

    The only other green knit I have is this:

    Alas.
    I like that a lot, it almost reads as a pindot and looks much nicer than those woven dot knits, which don't do much for me.

    Exactly, that's the one. Any chance of a re-stock?

    possibly but not until next April or May, got a heap of stuff already on order to see us through until then.
    Unfortunately not the fabric merchant they came from was incredibly difficult to deal with. Was a lovely pattern though.

    I have a Kent Wang navy/light blue knit bi-color (I believe the previously posted green/lime is also a KW?) and I find it extra versatile because of the mixed colors. For example, it's easier to wear with navy or blue jackets than a solid navy tie.

    I picked up this tie as well, was unsure about it's versatileity, but I have worn it quit a bit. Looks good in your combo. Good price at NMWA...

    The discussion on this threak this threak got me wondering: do the Italians ever wear English-style wedding ties? I can't recall ever seeing it.

    Here's my one and only bicolour knit. Probably not everyone's taste, but I find it surprisingly easy to incorporate into fits, as long as the colours are also found in other elements (as in this example, with the secondary red of the tie picking up on the colours in the suit fabric).
