    I know there is quite a few "what tie?" threads, but this particular suiting color and pattern posses a few challenges.

    My current attempts below (pics are as good as I can make them under the circumstances, sorry)
    Questions:

    1. Which ones do you like?
    2. Which ones do you not? (please don't judge from the knots, I got a little sloppy at the end).

    Thanks for input.

    Attempt 1: Tan wool knit

    Attempt 2: Striped wool knit

    Attempt 3: Green cheviot wool

    [​IMG]

    Attempt 4: Navy silk knit

    [​IMG]


    Attempt 5: Blue wool

    [​IMG]


    Attempt 6: Orange wool

    You have to remember that a white shirt may work with some or all of those combos...

    The soilds, as suspected.


    I'll try it the closest thing to a white shirt I own (blue stripe).

    4 is the right color but even better if it were a foulard print instead of the knit, like this (fries optional). His shirt color is a good idea too --it's not reading as white, just a very light shade of brown.

    With that shirt - 4
    If you wore a much lighter blue shirt - 1, 4, 5, 6

    Burn the bow tie, it looks awful.

    I like 4 and 6

    I like tie no.5 with the suit, but not necessarily with this shirt (tie and shirt are a bit too close)

    Dear GBR,

    You seem often to prescribe burning.
    Are you a pyromaniac, perchance?
    Perhaps you are simply trying it immitate the acerbic wit of the StyleForum sages.

    I don't think it will burn, as it's 100% polyester.


    I could probably melt it tough...


    Good point about a lighter blue shirt - while having a ton of blue shirts, I've never really paid much attention to their different shades blue.

    My own personal favorites are 5,6 (seems to be consensus on these) and 2.
