Even in California it is not yet spring, though last Saturday came very close. And, in honor of those hours of warm sunshine, here is a tan silk Shantung and linen necktie with a navy hairline stripe that is my personal choice for the tie of the coming season.
Tan neckties can be a challenge as it can be difficult to get enough contrast between tie and shirt or jacket. A lighter blue jacket does the trick, as does a white shirt (if a pale complected man is going to wear a white shirt during the day it is best that he does it in spring and summer when he has a little tan on his skin as white will wash out a paler complexion).
And though it is raining as I write, The Old Farmer's Almanac predicts warm and sunny weather beginning this week. Of course, that is still too early to store away the cold weather clothing.
Visit the ASW store to see a selection of spring neckties in silk shantung, tussah silk and silk and linen. Including the tie in the photo, as well as a few hard to find midnight blue Garza Fina grenadines with small ivory dots.
