I can't decide whether I should get a solid knit burgundy tie or a solid knit wine tie. Which one do you guys think is more versatile? Which one do you guys like better? To give context, I'm a college student who's just starting a sartorial wardrobe; I prefer the aesthetic to be more modern, muted, and minimal, but I'm also not that rich so I prefer versatility over buying for one outfit. Based off my aesthetic, I'm leaning towards wine, but I feel like it might not pair as well with other clothing as burgundy. Sometimes, my aesthetic leads me to extremely boring combos, so I really trust you guys! So far, I have a dark charcoal suit, muted eggplant tie, navy and black knit ties - all in solid colors; I only have dark blue, oxford blue, white, and charcoal shirts, again all in solid colors. The rest of my wardrobe (jeans and v-neck sweaters) that can be mixed in with ties is mostly dark blue, grey, or black. Do you guys feel that wine will cover the same "territory" as the eggplant tie? OR maybe I should just give up the idea of wearing red altogether; I don't own any reddish items. I think the actual colors are a little bit lighter than what the website demonstrates. Wine http://www.thetiebar.com/tie-bar-pro...ptionValueIds= Burgundy http://www.thetiebar.com/tie-bar-pro...ptionValueIds= It could be hard to tell the difference in color from those photos (I'm slightly red-green color blind - it's hard for me to distinguish brownish shades of red and green), so I'll show other ties they sell that demonstrate a better contrast of wine and burgundy - again, wine http://www.thetiebar.com/order_page....Submit%2Ey%3D0 and burgundy http://www.thetiebar.com/order_page....lid%2Bburgundy I really appreciate all the help! I'm just a noob.
