LOL, when I got addicted to What Not to Wear I found out there are a lot of tricks for dressing fashionably that I wasn't aware of. Like you don't have to have a lot of money -- you just have to know "the rules," as they refer to them.
Thank goodness there are shows like that on TV -- fun and informative.
But getting back to the pink tie, that's somewhat of an anomaly for Keith; in fact it may be the only pink article of clothing that he wears on TV. I can't recall another. But you mention PURPLE, and he has every shade there is. He wears more purple than Prince! And I can see why. The color looks very good on him.
I think I got through one or two episodes of what not to wear and realized I'd have to throw out everything I owned. I totally love Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, or did. Is it even still on? Carson would make a great bff.
We had a book in the old days "Dress for Success". I followed that for a while and also that book on whether you were a summer or a winter or so forth...and discovered it all depended on what color I did my hair that week. Yanno, you're right. Keith does look pretty good in purple...I never thought of it. As to ties, he has a couple he wears that he cannot go wrong with, one that has taupe stripes, which he wears with a kind of taupe/brown suit I like him in...and another that is dark (blue? or black?) striped tie he can wear with anything and look good. And MsLinda is right ...the green tie with the brown coat looked pretty good too. Like I said, guys clothes are a mystery.
Now, for total excellence though, George Hamilton appeared on Craig Ferguson the other night, and he had on a suit that was just top quality spectacular, with shirt and tie as well, all to highlight both his complexion and distinguished look. That caught my eye...he's never been one to skimp on himself for sure. My idea of what's handsome in a guy though, generally tends to the rough and tumble look...Lee Marvin, Harrison Ford, my husband...the shots I like best of Keith usually have him in a more casual look (save for one up on your picture gallery in a suit, very professional)...there is one on his Facebook account where he is wearing a brownish sweater ... I thought he looked really good on Martha Stewart, the guy can really wear that casual sweater and slacks look. And, he probably looks just great in jeans and sloppy clothes, which is where I'm at most of the time. Like I said, he's about my polar opposite in a lot of ways.
There are cases where doubt is unreasonable, but there are others where it seems logically impossible. And there seems to be no clear boundary between them. LW/OC/454
