      looks great, you actually have a great eye for combining colors and patterns
      don’t listen to
      the bottom is best, i love these kind of more muted, tonal looks
      its fresh and contemporary and nice to look at
      white shirts are kinda overrated tbh
      i will say the top tie could be swapped out for something nicer, it looks like one of those cheap shiny printed ties, you want something with a more matte, textured look, where the pattern is woven into the fabric, not printed

      make sure to also dimple your tie knot

          Paisley or plaid ties are what poor people wear to court, or like

          Please just wear a white or light blue shirt with a solid, dark colored tie. You don’t know what you’re doing. They both look like something a high schooler would wear to prom.

          Nothing says muted like a bright purple paisley tie. You’re joking right and trying to make the OP look like a stupid?

          said, what children wear to prom. Do yourself a favor and get if not a solid-colored tie, at least one with a more subtle, tasteful pattern.

          shut up you boring heck, i get that white and blue are the standard but you don’t need to be a pedantic cunt about it. let a guy try something mildly different from the norm.
          It’s stupid that I have to remind you of this, but your taste is not objective, different people have different tastes, and I think it looks good. No wonder nobody wants to get into styles like this when its full of artless joykills like you. And given your attitude, who do you think he’s gonna go with? I should hope he has more self-respect than to go with the asshole who has told him to do nothing but forget all of his own ideas and choices and supplant them with that of the herd.

            my tie knots are as tight as they come you presumptuous chump, bet picrel gives you a heart attack from too many colors
            i can also tie a bow tie
            not a huge fan of paisley myself, nor plaid, and i can see how you’d associate them with prom outfits, but with the right styling they can be ok. the real ruiner of most prom looks is bad fit, bad shoes, and the geometric disharmony caused by skinny lapels, loose tie knots, and stubby shirt collars. OP has a decent choice of shirt so doubt it will be a problem
            the real poorgay tie choice is the small-print floral kind anyway lol

            >a purple paisley tie with a gray suit is bold to some people
            Some of you gays should not be on a fashion board.
            That being said, the full purple shirt is a little much.

            real

            Out of the ordinary looks bad. Don’t know what else to tell you. Why even ask for advice if you were just going to double down on what you decided before you asked? Wasted everyone’s time.

            >waaaaaah waaah i did nothing but completely dismiss somebody’s ideas instead of suggesting improvements why arent they taking my advice as gospel??

            That being said, the full purple shirt is a little much.

            agreed, the full purple is a little janky, especially with a stark black and white tie, bold shirts are often better with ties that blend retain the shirt color and blend in slightly, a black and purple or navy and purple pattern would serve that look better

            I think top combination is the best one, has more visual flair, the bottom is too muted. Might be too much if you are going to a job interview and risk encountering some repressed freak with fashion sensibilities of 1950s grandpa, but otherwise, top looks good.

            i disagree, muted tonal looks can really let the subtleties of an outfit take center stage, like the textures and patterns
            but yeah dont stress about the opinions of the utterly neurotic

            Okay your tie knots are fine my dude, I’ll give you that, but picrel is not good.
            I don’t hate any of the individual pieces except for maybe the tie, and I actually like the shirt, it’s fun and a nice accent in its own way, but as an ensemble that fit does not jive together.

          That tie is big quirky tier, ignore

          both look terrible, what the heck are those ties

          , those ties aren’t bad and are probably the best design ties. Tartan ties are cringe. Striped ties make you look like a schoolboy pleb, just look at Putin vs Carlson interview. Best options are what was in the OP

          https://i.imgur.com/6Qw0gAo.jpg

          top? my /fashion/ sense is shit

          and solid ties. Paisley ties work if they’re understated or if they’re extremely high quality and you’re wearing an expensive suit ($4000+).

          They’re both terrible. For dress shirts, stick to white and blue. As for ties, go to /trad/ and ask for them to recommend some ties and then try to find similar ones at whatever store.

            Thanks again and don’t worry, I’m still going in this direction. Probably the second option, or maybe a solid medium-grey tie with the first shirt?

            I have plenty of white and blue dress shirts, I’d rather take a chance and do something out of the ordinary.

            I appreciate the concern, but I don’t think any of these colors are that extreme. If you aren’t being hyperbolic then your monitor needs calibration.

            Nice try, but you got it backwards. I came for a second opinion of how to fine-tune my looks. "It’s all shit, start over and take the basic route," isn’t really advice, is it?

            or don’t, nobody can tell you what to do 😉

            is this a real dougpost or the guy who pretends to be him? is his real name even doug?

            are you bullshitting me? yea its me, i dont think it should really be hard to tell. he’s never earnestly attempted to impersonate me (other than the fake reddit account), its always been an obvious frothing-with-hate caricaturization of me, or rather how he seems to percieve me.
            average faker dougpost:
            >pic obviously edited to make me look ugly (moreso than usual, YMMV with how ugly i actually am)
            >plays up some stupid theatrics usually around my full moniker, "doug devious" to make fun of the fact i would choose a name like that, when i don’t really take it that seriously myself, but to him its like the most cringe thing in the world
            >namegay (which i no longer am)
            >you can smell the stench of an unwashed, delusionally obsessive schizophrenic troglodyte wafting through the screen just looking at their posts
            his posts are also obviously samefagged

            I could almost excuse it if he just did this to drive me away for being a tripgay back in the day, that i would at least understand as trying to preserve the board culture, and it would have stopped as soon as i stopped using a trip and left for a while, but hes been doing this, completely unprompted, to the annoyance of everyone, for what feels like over a year, maybe two now. he needs to take a holiday at the grippy sock hotel
