Black and Red Ascot Tie

Search_wFor my wedding I wanted the boys of the party to wear matching ascot ties and my husband to have one as well just in different color. It seemed to mach Alice theme really well and give it some royal vintage British feeling I was hoping to achieve. So the red one had to be a mach with my red bouquet and dress lace in the back.

Item: Somehow in the pictures I take with the phone color looks not really black and red is more visible when in reality its really dark black with dark red which blends in quite nicely.

It went really well with dark brown suit and key accessory. Though I shortened it a bit to be less visible under the shirt, but that made it slip out most of the time during the day. If I knew that would happen I would pin it to the shirt at the beginning. Other than that it looked sharp and I don’t regret deciding to use them.

Ebay vs. Reality CCCC_offC_off

Ebay +1 for fitting the theme, +1 for fitting the suit, +1 for the actually being nice. Reality gets +1 for slipping out all day and constantly needing attention and +1 for arriving late.
