    MJC, what color shirts do you pair that yellow tie with? GDL, what do you wear your pink tie with? This just arrived today, I expect it to get some feedback [​IMG]

    Nice. I'll add one.

    Bowties are asexual. Off limits for me

    My original post was a pun of sorts.

    ...apparently not a very good pun.

    MJC,
    Do you think that yellow tie would go with a lavender shirt?
    What other color shirts do you pair it with?

    i would get alot of compliments on my isaia 7 fold.

    but however i dont wear that one these days, as ive put paisleys aside for the moment, and gone to my stripes and wool/cashmere ones.

    i get alot of compliments on my balenciaga tie i guess because of its bold navy and orange stripe. the stripes are really wide. as a tie by itself i dont think anyone would wear it, but it works well with certain things.

    2 Tom Ford ties I have get a LOT of positive comments. The one that gets the most feedback is a burgundy silk knit with a flat bottom and yellow pindots. Comments not always positive though - even wearing a knit die in this bogan town is seen as weird. "Is that a sock?" [​IMG]
