Style Share return: Robertson tartan tie

Another return back from the month of December (which oddly feels like so long ago already).

Robertson tartan

This time out, it was the Robertson tartan tie (claimed by JHo78), featuring a color palette that includes, but certainly was not limited to the holiday season.

Here's the details, courtesy of JHo78 himself:

I put it together with a white ocbd, a merino sweater and a slightly bluish gray herringbone Harris tweed sportcoat. Down below are dark jeans and my own pair of Florsheim longwings in cigar.

This looks like something straight out of my personal playbook. I'd throw a linen or cotton pocket square in that sport coat just for good measure, but I dig, I dig. Thanks to JHo78 for his contribution back.


  1. Yep, a sharp ensemble! And the tie IS fantastic.

    Best Regards,

    Ulrich von B.

  2. Pocket square! (Slaps forehead)

  3. Seems a nice outfit, but I wouldn't wear jeans with a tie. Navy moleskin trousers would please me better, but who cares : I'm not the happy owner of these great tie & jacket.

  4. Yeah, I'm not a fan of jeans, but I'm betting that Jh078 is quite a bit younger than I and so can pull it off.

    For tweed, I always use a silk pocket square. I use cotton & linen with suits and blazers. Personal preference. I think that those textures work better with each other--nice and contrasty.

    In any case, looking good, Jh078!
