I've always had a soft spot for vintage militaria, and that's a pretty damn good combo there, Woof. Nice and bloody comfy.

You might find better, or bigger pictures of the shades from the source of the yarn:

http://www.knitrennie.com/section.php?x … 59c23b06b3

The Lawrence Odie made for O'Connell's also use the same yarn, but O'Connell's likes to change the names, e.g., Rennie "Turin" is O'Connell's "Autumn"; "Heathland" becomes "Tobacco", and so on.

I like this look a lot... I enjoy your illustrations as well, you have a knack for representing your outfits very well in them... Here (perhaps because of the hazy mirror, or something) you've represented your artwork very well in an actual outfit... Very cool...

That tie! Beautiful... Wish I could see the pink better, I can see how a touch of faded pink would really bring this outfit to life...

Also good on you for repping the tie clip as always... I've never really felt comfortable with the tie clip but I do have a few Swank clips that I've been meaning to try out, perhaps today is the day...

Ah cheers BB! The colours didn't come out that well under artificial light, but that shirt/tie combo is one of my fave line-ups.

There are some great Swank tie clips, especially the 'Atomic' era ones, so wear and enjoy ... but you soon will feel undressed without one.

Thank you BB, I'm glad you liked it.

Many on here know my interest in colour, they might want to switch off now. A couple of years ago I thought why do certain colours suit me? There must be a logic to it?

I worked out that colour likes to coordinate thusly, for how ever much you move one axis, you move the other two axi by the same amount, in that way there is no resistance  I then went on to create a colour matrix based on my skin tone, which is very useful especially when trying to buy online. Very simply the line cuts straight through a 3D colour space and the line always returns to my skin tone. It appears to work, but it's by no means a creativity killer, you have to create combinations that push and pull against each other creating tension and resolve a lot like with tonal gravity in music..

It would be alright as long as we kept off certain subjects wink

I can't pretend to understand everything you have written above, but there is definitely something about colours and skin tone. I wore a salmon coloured Shetland the other day and as soon as I put it on for the first time I felt good in it. I received  some compliments about it during the day with a couple of people who never normally talk about clothes remarking that the colour really suited me.

As I replied to BB above, the outfit I posted earlier today is one of my favourite combinations. I would like to take a better photo of the jacket, shirt and tie in daylight and post it up for your comment.

Re: Ivy League style for today

Yeah, I think we all respond to this when we see it, it's what's going on behind the scenes, whether you arrive at it through an intuitive process or a studied approach it's the end result that counts. It's why I try to argue the subjectivity out of the process because you have objectivity governing this, where the artistry kicks in is creating how the story plays out, what you choose to put together and how they resolve.

Re: Ivy League style for today

Really cool, Other BB... Awesome charts and very interesting thinking behind them... I don't know much about the workings of color but my father has done very deep dives into color as part of his work on (and with) photography. The workings of color wheels and the relationships between different colors seems fascinating, especially when applied to clothing!

That was indeed a great Shetland, woof...

Re: Ivy League style for today

These shots are a good exploration of the relationship between textures. For me, the repp tie at the top would work better with a finer cloth jacket or suit as it seems too shiny against the rough cloth of the winter herringbone. This is just my take of course. The other two ties work perfectly with the tweed however, I particularly like the patterned Brooks tie, a real classic.

I love those matt finish ties that work so well with winter outfits, wool knits, ancient madders, challis ties(?).

I'm a sucker for those ebay sites where they have dozens of old trad ties for sale. I've got far too many already, but I can never stop looking at them, of course when I retire in a few years time and stop going to an office they'll all be largely redundant. Then I'll have to start one of those ebay sites where they have dozens of old trad ties for sale.

You tie a mean knot Berkeley, I've always loved your dimples.

Re: Ivy League style for today

I see your point now that you mention it, Woof. I never actually thought about it before, but now I reckon that the knit tie looks best here. It fits the bill, formality-wise, and I think the contrasting 'rough' textures work out quite nicely. The silk repp tie does look a bit strange here.

I noticed this with my seersucker, as well. I guess this is why the black knit tie is the standard Ivy tie.

Aww, shucks smile I do love to tie a tie right... Get your index finger in the center of the tie right below the knot as you pull it tight and you'll never go wrong...

I agree about the green and navy repp tie, thanks for the comments... Not the best picture, for instance the green is a real green, not olive as it looks here, but it is a shinier tie than I'd hoped and I do think it would look better with a finer cloth, as you say... I'll try that soon and post the results here...

I am also a sucker for those sellers, I get almost all my "new" ties from hanntex on eBay but if you know of other good sellers please shoot them my way... I'm a bit reluctant to give up hanntex as my source because his prices are so good I'm sure you all will be snapping up good stuff... lots of Rooster and Brooks Brothers and Lands End there if you haven't checked it out already... Thanks for the compliment on that other Brooks tie, it really is a beautiful pattern... I've been trying to expand my tie pattern and color range lately!

I agree, the knit tie with the rough tweed is always an excellent combo... But I do think (although I agree with yourself and woof on the first tie) that a more matte silk tie, especially a foulard, can really compliment a more rugged cloth in the jacket with a smooth contrast...

Thank you both for your kind words and constructive criticism!

Matte silk ties imo are the coolest, Drakes always appear to do really nice ones

Yeah, I'd reckon a nice foulard silk tie would look much better. I guess it's just more excuses to buy yourself more ties. Haha.
