I was wondering what the other forum members thought about the practice of wearing a repp-type striped tie with a striped shirt. I know the general rule is not to wear one type of stripe (such as vertical) in connection with another type, but I recently bought a lavender and cream striped tie which I think would look very sharp with some of my shirts (the vast majoirty of which have some type of stripes). I've tried a few combinations in the mirror and they look fine but I don't want to actually wear them together if I'm going to look like some sort of rube.
