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.

This Autumn Ensemble is a brilliant example of how colors can and should be coordinated. The combination of dark oranges, ivy greens, grays, light blues and camels is a phenomenal example of Menswear done right.

As fashion enthusiasts, appreciators of good moods and fans of dancing,  we can’t get enough of this song.  There is also a website 24hoursofhappy.com where the song will play for 24 hours with shots of people clapping, dancing and singing throughout LA.

Suit Up in Three Piece Suits | 2014

Three Piece Suits Are Big in Menswear Fashion

Mens Three Piece Style

The Three Piece Suit has been revamped, redesigned and is currently sweeping the field of Menswear at a rapid rate.  This season, the three piece suits are more tailored, slimmer fitting and available in a broad ranges of colors and patterns. You can opt for a bright blue three piece suit and accessorize with an embroidered blue tie and a patterned orange pocket square.  You can also go with a more traditional look and opt for a check pattern gray suit, a black tie and a silver tie clip.  The options for finding and accessorizing your aesthetic in a three piece suit are endless.

We’re seeing a wide range of men wearing the three piece suit including celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as well as everyday business men on the way to the office. We are hoping this fashionable trend stays around for awhile because the three piece suit is a fashionable menswear look that compliments the art of accessory very nicely.  Three piece suits looks brilliantly handsome teamed up with ties, skinny ties, pocket squares, silk scarves and tie bars.

Happy Suiting!

An Innovative Menswear Look To Try

Mixing Patterns For The Ultimate Menswear Look in Blues and Whites

Check Blue Suit and Bow Tie

Blue Check Suit from Suit Supply

Striped Shirt from Brooks Brothers

Designer Blue Bow Tie from Cantucci

White Silk Handkerchief from Cantucci

Brown Oxford Shoes from Nordstroms

There’s nothing new about a menswear ensemble consisting of a palette of blues, whites and browns.  However, mixing and matching patterns is something innovative, dynamic and aggressively fashionable. We love the style, cut and color of the check blue suit paired with a striped button down shirt and a textured blue bow tie.  This look exudes confidence, professionalism and creativity.   For a more casual spin on this look, you can pair the blazer, shirt, bow tie and pocket square with a pair of tailored denim jeans.  We highly endorse expanding your fashion horizons and trying new ways to savvy up your style with unexpected pairings like plaids and stripes. This look has a New England charm that everyone is bound to love. The blues are mid range making this suit less severe than a classic Navy Blue Menwear Suit.  Combine these dapper elements and the results will exceed your expectations.

The Nostalgic Charms of The Silk Scarf

The Now and Then of The Menswear Silk Scarf

Cary Grant Style

The silk scarf is an extraordinary accent accessory with endless possibilities. It has a nostalgic past made famous by pilots in World War 1 and World War 2 and then movie stars like Fred Astaire and Cary Grant.  Above, we have a picture of Cary Grant looking outstandingly handsome in a sports coat,  a button up shirt and a silk scarf.   This style has a nostalgic charm that continues to influence and populate menswear.

Men's Patterned Scarf in Blue

Here is a take on how the silk scarf has stayed current and modern.  Silk Scarves have gotten larger, brighter, incorporated more patterns and are worn with more casual ensembles.  Some of our most popular silk scarves include:

Paisley Scarf in Yellow

Regal Paisley Silk Scarf

Designer Mens Scarf in Blue

Geometric Floral Scarf in Marine Blue

Silk Scarf in Burgundy

Burgundy Silk Scarf

Patterned Silk Scarfs are phenomenal accessories for adding color, confidence and prestige to your menswear pieces ranging from linen blazers to three piece tweed suits.  You can pair silk scarves with coordinating pocket squares, bow ties or ties to add more dimension and interest to your aesthetic.

How To Coordinate Solid Brown Ties Into Your Wardrobe

Brown Ties Add Distinction To Just About Anything

Stylish Brown Neckties

There’s perhaps nothing more masculine than the shade of brown when it comes to menswear suiting.   Every man owns at least one brown suit whether it is summer tan or a winter chestnut brown  -whereas few men own solid brown neckties. Why is that? We want  to reinvent how you approach tonal browns and start incorporating them into you wardrobe in both suiting and in accessorizing.  Brown ties can be the quintessential accessory to an outfit whether it monochromatic or a palette of dark Autumn and Winter hues.

One of our favorite looks is seeing a dark brown tie paired with a light tan or fawn suit paired with a patterned pocket square to pull in all the colors.  Another look that excels is pairing a knit brown tie with a dark navy blue suit and a  brown pocket square.  There are a million options for how you can rev up your suits with the simple addition of a classic single hued brown tie.

These are a few of our favorite dark brown ties:

           Textured Coffee Brown Tie  Brown Tie with Texture  Mens Brown Tie

This season, we strongly recommend purchasing a few solid dark brown ties to wear with your patterned button downs and brown suits. You’ll be instantly amazed by the fashion savvy results.

Dress Up Your Cardigans With Ties and Bow

Accessorize Your Cardigans For A Knockout Style

Menswear Cardigans

 

Cardigans are the new blazer. We are seeing a very concentrated trend of men opting to wear their cardigans with menswear accessories such as ties, bow ties and scarfs more than ever.   Rather than picking a blazer, gentleman are reaching for cardigans and creating polished but casual ensembles that blur the traditional line between professional attire and leisurely wear. This unique combination of fashion components is creating a new aesthetic that we are fully endorsing. We love the combination of colors, textures and fabrics that come together in this look. The chunky feel of knits looks handsome with satin finished bow ties.  Lightweight cardigans look modern and edgy paired with skinny ties.  The options and combinations are literally endless with this casual chic style of dress. You can pull this style off in uber bright summer colors as well as dark winter neutrals.

Modernize the way you approach your workday no matter if you work in a very casual environment or not.  This look will surprise you with its innate versatility, handsome style and polished sensibilities.  You can coordinate you solid colored cardigans with patterned dress shirts, regimental neckties and either trousers or denim jeans.
