Soft tie/shirt contrast vs. strong contrast

Day-glo orange Hermes tie on Navy Bengal or even Candy stripes?
Or
soft red with grey over-pattern Hermes on light blue Bengal or even fine Bengal stripes?

Nonsense. If you know what your doing it should be easy to mix coat, shirt and tie patterns without looking like a clown. Though of course that doesn't mean you have to mix patterns all the time.

I can't say Day-glo should be worn anywhere other than building sites and football train sessions.

Hard or soft both have their places. I can't be doing with red on blue though. But I'm sure there would be exceptions to that rule.

What you can do and is worth having a go at is using patterns togther that are either twice as big or half as small..then you get this fractal thing going on which is very pleasing to the eye.

I don't understand this rule... What is allowed, then? Can you put an emblematic tie with a striped shirt? A striped tie with a striped shirt? A patterned tie and striped shirt with a check or pinstriped suit? I've seen them all done well...

Tonight I'm wearing a green tie with a pink shirt, FYI.

two patterns at a time preferably, sometimes three, otherwise where's the challenge?
