Nuts For Nautical Fashion in Menswear

Look Ultra Smart in Nautical  Inspired Fashion Ensembles

 

How To Create A Nautical Look

 

Creating a polished nautical look can easily be done with the proper palette, the right cottons and the perfect menswear accessories.  First +  foremost, create a palette of all navy blues and whites and from there, start to think about your accessories.   For accessories, you can go with a linen pocket square,  a textured polka dot skinny tie or perhaps an anchor tie. It all depends on you.

We carry a broad assortment of navy blue menswear accessories that can pair impressively well with your nautical blazers whether they are blue linen, white cotton or gingham checkered.  The key to great nautical fashion is looking clean, posh and well accessorized in head to toe Navy and White.

Mix your menswear patterns and separate your summer suiting. For example, a navy blue suit blazer can look revived and casual by being paired with white jeans or chinos.  Pair your gingham neckties with your color trimmed pocket squares.  Sky’s the limit and the seas are open, when it comes to creating great nautical inspired fashion ensembles.

Chris doesn’t shy away from pairing this colorful necktie with other patterns. We particularly love it paired with this blue and white check shirt. It also looks notably dapper teamed up with a summer blazer and a bright hued pocket square if you have a meeting or event to go to.

Window Pane Suits Are Ultra Dapper For All Occasions

Window Pane Patterned Suits Are Exceedingly Dapper

The Classic Window Pane Pattern in Menswear

Sky’s the limit this year when it comes to window pane suits.  We love the variety of colors, scales and fabrics that we are seeing from an assortment of designers.  We are especially fond of the vibrant blue that is currently trending in Menswear.   Most importantly, we’re seeing men pairing two or patterns together.  Historically, men have gravitated towards solid hued neckties when choosing a heavily patterned or textured suit,  but that is changing. Above, you can see a small example of the variety of patterns that men are wearing with their window pane suits.  Don’t be afraid to pair your assortment of patterned ties and bow ties with your patterned suits.  We recommend having your accessories color coordinate with your suits. For example, if you are opting for a gray window pane suit we would recommend a striped tie with gray and a patterned gray pocket square.  Besides the rule of color coordination, your options for mixing patterns are endless.

We’re busy at work trying to  beat  this Paisley Trend and get some unique accessories designed and crafted and on to our website as fast as we can.

We also saw a gaining popularity with mixing patterns, textures and accessories.  Most of the suits had decorative pins that coordinated with the color palette of the necktie without looking too similar or choreographed.  2015 is going to be a fashion year that celebrates traditional tailoring with eccentric pairings.  Expect to see paisley ties paired with striped button downs, brown suits paired with brighter pockets squares and accessories of all types and sizes.  And just in case you can’t wait until 2015 for your paisley fix, we’ve picked out a few of our current favorites that you can right now.

Knit ties are a welcomed accessory to menswear for their innate ability to add depth, texture and knockout style to a casual getup.  They are stylistically interesting in their ability to mix and match with a spectrum of aesthetics ranging from business suiting to prep oriented street wear. As knit ties are increasing in popularity, we are noticing more and more designers and retailers offering knit ties in a variation of patterns, colors, widths, etc.   Call us traditionalists, but we love the classic saturated knit ties in the staple school colors of burgundy, green and a goldish camel.
