I am usually not very fond of light ties with darker shirts, or at least I find it to be a look that is very hard to pull off well. I recently got this royal blue shirt from my shirtmaker and I had originally intended to use it more casually, without ties. But today I decided to try it out with a lighter tie, just to challenge myself to wear combinations I am not normally used to wearing. Because of the rather bright colour of the shirt and tie, I decided to go with muted colours of tan and white for the rest of the outfit. I’m actually kind of pleased with the look and I think it turned out far better that I thought it would. Sometimes it good to push you boundaries, I guess.
