Easter Sunday Fashion Inspiration | 2014
Egg Hunts and Roasts await! Easter Sunday is only weeks away and it is that time to start thinking about what you are going to wear. Call us old fashioned but we believe that every holiday should be accompanied with a stand out, special occasion holiday get-up. And lets be honest, our Moms love to see us all dressed up. Easter can be a tricky holiday because it is in Spring and it can sometimes call for a lightweight summer suit. Most of us have professional suiting but not all of us have Easter Savvy suiting in linens, cottons or seersuckers.
Not to worry. We have some inspiration looks that aren’t just Easter specific. Invest in a lightweight summer suit that you can wear to summer weddings, vacation dinners and Easter Sundays. We recommend white, tan or light gray. For a more neutral look, we recommend pairing a summer suit with an ivory textured tie or a solid navy tie. And for a more colorful look we recommend:

Paisley Is On Trend For Menswear For 2015
On our recent trip to Italy, we spotted a budding trend in menswear fashion and we thought of you. Here is a sneak peek at what we forecast to be the biggest menswear fashion trend of 2015 – The Paisley Necktie. Prepare to be dazzled and charmed by a wide array of medium sized, paisley patterned accessories in both dark and bright color ways. All the designs we saw were intricate in detail, on the skinner side and made from a unique blend of materials. We loved the wool and silk blends and we think you will too. 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 Have A Handsome Retro Appeal

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.

Ivy Green Knit Tie

These three colored knit ties have the ability to work with an assortment of light and dark toned neutrals.

The intricate detail of these prints are nothing like we have seen before, and we are excited to carry the designer’s collection not only has neckties (3.125″ wide), but also as self-tie bow ties, and matching pocket squares. Below are 12 of our favorite new patterns. Click on your favorite one to see the entire necktie.

They are perfect for any season and will pair nicely with all classic suits and blazers. Click your favorite color below to view the entire necktie.
Vintage Paisleys: A bit bolder in contrast but just as elegant as the “Classic Paisley Collection” (shown above) is Cantucci’s Vintage paisley design. The designer opted for a more muted, grayish background color that nicely complements the vintage inspired paisley design.
Indian Paisleys: The largest scale and boldest paisley design by designer Cantucci. It features unique background colors with brighter multi-colored paisley motifs. While certainly attention-grabbing pieces, these are just as elegant and timeless as the two other paisley designs shown above.

Get Happy With Bows Ties and Music Videos
If you haven’t seen or heard Pharrell Williams song “Happy” – you have to see it now. This music video is contagiously happy and will make you want to dance and accessorize in bow ties.

Three Piece Suits Are Big in Menswear Fashion
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.

Mixing Patterns For The Ultimate Menswear Look in Blues and Whites
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 Now and Then of The Menswear Silk Scarf
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.
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:
Regal Paisley Silk Scarf
Geometric Floral Scarf in Marine Blue
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.
