    Very nice except that the square looks too much like the tie/

    Hmmm for me when I click on zb's pic it just brings up his pic. Weird. I like everything but the square too.

    Ima small timer (and even if I weren't) so feel free to ignore.

    The sharpest / most formal look is based on black and white. So a casual outfit needs something to soften that. That jacket is obviously informal and already black / white so needs something to break that up.

    I'd stay away from powder or baby blue (which is what I imagine you're intuiting with your question about blue - black) buy a nice greyish blue would look good. Not too dark but something obviously not white.

    Finish it with a black or maybe navy nit grenadine or knit. Maybe a dark brown. Could also look at something else with texture - linen, shantung, etc.

    The jacket looks busy since it has a white ground. I think a patterned tie would be very tough. Maybe a repp stripe if you really don't want to wear a solid.

    I think a big part of the problem is the jacket itself. Too close to a suiting without actually being that straightforward.

    Because he is a man of stature and substance - a lion in winter. Barker Blacks are for young men who think "being edgy" means buying shoes with a skull and crossbone decoration rather than knowing how to kill a man with a piece of chalk and a roll of tape (like OD/OT).

    i would certainly not ignore you!

    i hear ya, and appreciate you taking the time to share that. i may try that. i have no issue with solid ties. i quite like them. i just wanted to try the houndstooth on houndstooth, out for a spin. of course, irl, i have gotten lots of compliments. a sure sign of SF failure, lol.
