W Magazine and George Clooney joined creative forces and put Polka Dots on the Fashion Map this season with an all out Polka Dot photo shoot.  The result is bold, punchy and inspiring. We pulled together a few of our favorite looks that incorporate polka dots into menswear.

Polka dots are a classic pattern that can mix and mingle with a variety of other patterns and textures.  This gray and black polka dot button down shirt works outrageously well with this tonal gray paisley necktie.

The quintessential Black and White Polka Dot Tie is an accessory that belongs in every man’s wardrobe. It can be worn with a tuxedo,  a suit or simply with a cardigan sweater.  A simple polka dot tie is savvy investment that can invigorate anything it is teamed with.

Polka Dots come in many shapes and sizes making them a charming pattern to experiment with. Don’t be afraid to mix a few polka dot patterned accessories into one fashion-forward ensemble. We like this combination of a polka dot silk scarf,  a skinny polka dot tie and a tweed suit.

The Look – Thanksgiving Chic

Menswear Fashion You Can’t Squabble About

Menswear for Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is hours away from beginning and we know you’ve spent the day fantasizing about the culinary gluttony that is about to take place – but have you thought about  what you are going to wear?  You haven’t, have you?   We’re here to help you with a fool proof fashion ensemble that you can easily pull together.


Sun-Faded Chinos in 484 Fit  in Bedford Blue from JCrew
Pants. Go chinos. They look nice and to be direct, they have more give in the waist band then denim.


Shawl Cardigan From AE
A cardigan is multi-functional and adds a veneer of polish to your getup as well as added comfort in case it is chilly.


Midnight Blue Bow Tie from Ties Neckties
Accessorize with an Autumn inspired accessory and everyone loves a patterned bow tie.


Trim Fit Non-Iron Dress Shirt  from NordstromAny gingham dress shirt will do but we love this trim fit non-iron dress shirt in blue and white. Yes, you read that right,  non-iron!


Animal Mask from Amazon
The kids will love it. We spend weeks looking for a turkey rather than a chicken with no luck. We plan on doing some awkward photo bombing at the dinner table. The kids will love it.


Navy Color Block Parka from Topman
Always remember to layer up in the cold months. The fusion of function and form makes this parka one of our favorite choices.


Cole Haan Oxfords at Cole Haan
Finish up the Thanksgiving Chic Look with a pair of savvy oxfords.

Happy Thanksgiving, Sincerely Your Ties-Necktie Team

The Cheat Sheet for The Weekend Look

All You Need for A Stylishly Relaxed Weekend

Weekend Style Checklist

Simplify and stylize your weekend with this Fashion Checklist that is fusion of rugid and polished menswear essentials ranging from boots to worsted wool neckties.  This combination of fashion components is guaranteed to ensure a fashionable weekend look that is appropriate for just about anything ranging from hikes, to wine tastings, to live music shows, to errand trips to Home Depot.

1. The Classic Cardigan From Scotch & Soda
Cardigans are a savvy and polished addition to a casual ensemble and they trump the sweatshirt. Cardigans can be worn with a tee shirt or layered on a button down and paired with a tie or bow tie.

2. Worsted Wool Tie from Ties Necktie
You should have ties that are intended for suits and you should have ties that are more casual in style. Skinny ties, wool ties and knit ties are exemplary accessories for casual weekend attire that pair handsomely with denim shirts and wool cardigans.

3. Broken In Denim Jeans
Denim is a very personal decision. Everyone has their own brand of denim that they love whether it be Levi or Baldwin, but the key to great denim is breaking it in.  Wear your denim and get the perfect amount of Distress.

4. Clubmaster Sunglasses from Ray Ban
These iconic sunglasses belong in everyman’s weekend look.  No matter the dress code, these sunglasses resonate with a strong sense of cool.

5.  Chambray Button Down
Every good weekend needs a denim or chambray shirt. They go with absolutely everything and look casually refined at all times. Chambray shirts drastically vary in price from twenty dollars upward to hundreds of dollars. We suggest picking one on fit.

6. A Tweed Blazer
The key component to having a versatile Weekend Look comes down to the blazer. The blazer is potentially the most need item on the checklist because it adds a level of diversity to the other components. All men should have one weekend specific blazer in their style arsenal.

7. Leather Work Boots from Filson Workwear
Finding a durable and fashion pair of boots can be exceedingly hard but you can’t go wrong with Filson Boots. These premium grades boots are a solid investment that will last the test of time.

To Patch or Not To Patch – The Style Behind Elbow Pads

Elbow Pads and Their Illustrious Style

Menswear Jacket Elbow Patches


To elbow patch or not to elbow patch is the question of the day around the office. The team is divided.  On one side we have those that think it looks academic with a sportsmens like bravado and on the other side, we have those that think it looks stodgy, dated and grandpa-esque.  So we ask you, our savvy fashion readers, what’s your stance on the elbow pad in menswear fashion? We look forward your feedback and in the meantime, have pulled a few looks together that we think you’ll every love or hate, depending on your elbow patch proclivities.

Here is a casual look that incorporates army washed chinos, a braided belt, a plaid shirt, a henley, and a navy blazer with leather elbow patches.  This looks is polarizing. What do you think?  Most agreed that this was a little too much mixing and matching.  And the prevailing opinion was this:  whether you like patches or not, they should be suede and not leather.

Elbow patchworks are typically associated to colder weather fashion months, but this Summer Seersucker look caught our eye.  We like the combination of seersucker blues, pastel yellows and light grey elbow patches.  We saw this look and thought this style would look dynamically hip with a platinum silver skinny tie.

Elbow Pads are not for blazers only; they can be used on sweaters, cardigans and jackets.  We love the casual look of the sweaters and the denim but can’t decide if we like the elbow pads or not.  We love the color coordination of the tan elbow pads and the buttons.

One thing is for sure, elbow pads are fashion polarizers. Your either love them or hate them. Comment on our blog and let us know your opinion.

Polka Dot Accessories That Are Spot On

Best Polka Dot Accessories For The Season


Photo Credit:

Jump in on the sharpest, smartest and sweetest fashion trend out right now in menswear which happens to be the infamous Polka Dot. Big or small, polka dots are literally everywhere this season.  We’ve noticed a huge increase in our Polka Dot Accessories Sales and wanted to share with you a few of our most coveted pieces that are (pun intended) spot on!

Classic Polka Dot Tie

One of our hottest polka dot accessories is our Blue and Red Polka Dot Silk Tie from the Chevalier Design Group.  This dapper necktie looks gorgeously handsome with just about anything ranging from a classic single breasted navy blue suit to a cashmere cardigan and jeans combo. This dynamite designed necktie is a must have accessory for any polka dot enthusiasts.

Polka Dot Tie in Wine

This boldly designed Polka Dot Tie in Wine and Blue is a popular accessory for contemporary dressers who like graphic and brazen accessories that make or break an ensemble.  We love to see this popular accessory teamed up with a chambray button down, blue suspenders and navy blue trousers.  This cultured shade of burgundy also shines when it is teamed with grays and charcoals.


With the rise in casual workwear ensembles, we’ve seen an outrageous increase in the popularity of our patterned pocket squares.   It seems that a lot of business professionals are opting to skip on the tie and instead wear a button down with a blazer and a pocket square. We love this Vintage Burgundy Polka Dot Pocket Square paired with absolutely everything.

You can’t go wrong with the simplicity and charm associate with Polka Dots no matter how you incorporate them into your daily ensemble. These are just a few of our most popular designs but feel free to browse around and find your favorite polka dot pieces.

How To Look Smashing In A Tuxedo

How To Look Your Very Best In a Tuxedo


The Black Tie Attire basics come down to a few simple components – a black tuxedo, a white shirt, and a black bow tie. From there, you can creatively put your own stamp of style on the tuxedo in a number of ways ranging from clever socks, to boutonnieres to clever footwear. We’ve picked out a few our favorite ways to look smashing and authentically you in a tuxedo.

The Bow Tie 

When it comes to standard Black Tie Attire, it is typical to opt for a solid black bow and it can be self tie or pre-tied depending on your bow tie capabilities. Some of us are more adept at tying a bow tie than others no matter how many YouTube tutorials we watch.  You can deviate from the norm and experiment with textured black ties as well as patterned bow ties.  For example, a ribbed black bow can add a subtle dose of individuality to your look when you’re in a room full of other dapper dudes in tuxedos and black bow ties.

Most tuxedo wearers default to solid black dress socks but that doesn’t have to be the case.  You can add a personalized touch to your black dress attire by wearing colorful and patterned socks. We love seeing solid red socks, polka dot socks and patterned black and white socks.




It is very common for most men to think that all boutonnieres and flower lapels are the same but they are not.  Boutonnieres can run the gamut from super simple to uber complex and can vary in flower, color and size.  Experiment with adding a flower or boutonniere to your tuxedo and hit it out of the part by utilizing a flower that happens to be your dates favorite one.

Fall Fashion At Its Very Best

Embracing Fall’s Hottest Trends


Autumn Fashion trends are simply amazing this season from the saturated color palettes, to the utilitarian footwear to the patterned tweeds.  We’ve combed the designer look books to break down the top trends that you need to know about for Fall Fashion.


Get ready to embrace dark merlot reds, cultured olive greens, textured charcoals and dark navy blues.  Autumn trends are leaning towards dark and overly saturated hues that have an old world quality and allure.


Prepare to see plenty of checks, plaids, tweeds and pinstripes this season. Designers are taking wool suiting and making it astonishingly graphic. We loved the use of color and scale to make these traditional patterns contemporary and fresh.


Accessorize! Accessorize!  Accessorize!  Fall Fashion is all about layering and that includes patterned ties, bow ties, scarfs, ascots and pocket squares.   Mix and match your wool suits and blazers with autumn hued accessories in classic patterns like stripes and polka dots.


Invest in a pair of rugged leather boots and a pair of simple oxford wingtips.  These two quintessential Fall shoes will have you sorted for the entire Fall Season.


For this Autumn Season, make a conscious effort to diversify your fabrics. Invest in a few cashmere pieces, a few wool pieces and some waxed cotton outwear.  These items will instantly compliment your menswear basics such as patterned dress shirts, denim jeans and sweaters.

Invest in some key Fall pieces and always remember to Layer!  Fall is all about heavy fabrics, saturated colors and staying cozy.
