What I am wearing today (27 June 2012)

Today I am wearing a Price of Wales check, 2-button, notch-lapel suit; a blue over white graph-check shirt with tabbed collar and french cuffs; a yellow tie with small gray patterns; a brownish silk tie-dye pocket square; a pair of dark brown oxford shoes with medallion; and a vintage Anglo Swiss Watch Co., CAVALRY, split second, manual winding watch.

Today, for the fourth day I am wearing all patterns and today it is the most pronounced. Due to the very strong and dominating pattern of the suit, I paired with a less prominent shirt with a subtle blue graph check, which from a distance appears white. Now I needed a patterned tie that will not conflict with the suit and shirt. I ruled out any check or stripe as it will conflict with the bold suit. Similarly, a tie with too closely spaced dots is also not suitable as it will clash with the shirt. Therefore, I selected a tie with some widely spaced small patterns on it.

However, it is preferable to wear a white or pastel colored shirt and a plain tie with this suit.

    1. If you look closely, you will find the check of the suit has yellow (or golden) on it. This is the reason I selected this tie. Please note that it’s not necessary that the tie color must be yellow/golden for this combination. Other tie colors are also possible. When I was selecting a tie for this ensemble, this particular tie appeared most suitable at that time. Next time with the same combination I might select a different tie.
