I’m really going to have to invest in a better camera (my phone camera is grossly inadequate for capturing the true color of items). Here is one of my latest neckties (houndstooth pattern) that I was able to acquire during a recent trip to Michigan. The colors should be a bright and vibrant combination of teal/aqua,pink, and black; the shirt is also a bright teal/aqua . . . not this drab gray/green as displayed here. Despite having a hint of pink, this necktie will not go well with any of my pink shirts, but it will coordinate nicely with my gray, black, and white shirts. When I look at this shirt and tie combination in this photo (versus the in-person look), I feel as though I have cataracts — the colors are totally muted — my humblest apologies. Even though this necktie is brightly colored, it still represents a rather conservative necktie pattern (for me). The non-conservative shirt color (which has not been captured at all, but trust me, it is awesome, similar to the “swatch” at the right) certainly makes up for the necktie.
