Pattern: Unity of Concept
Color is an important part of outfit construction. But I get more psychic income out of more subtle parallels. Here, for example, the white and blue on the tie pick up the same colors on the cufflinks. However, the diamond/Escheresque patterns on both somehow complement each other on a more obtuse level. Congruence. Concentricity. Tessellation.
Of course, unless you can buy all the ties and all the cufflinks you want, a lot of these links are serendipitous. The next time you put on a favorite ensemble, take a fresh look and see if there isn't some deeper unity you never noticed before.
