Ties for Checkered Shirts

Three Great Ties for Check Patterned Dress Shirts

Solid suit, plain white dress shirt, and a striped navy blue necktie that has been tied with a four in Hand knot – a classic business uniform that seems to be present everywhere you look. If you are looking to add a bit more style, personal character, and fashion to your business attire then adding and combining patterns is a perfect way to go. Before you go crazy in mixing and matching a handful different patterns into one outfit, please consider this universal rule: Make sure that the patterns you combine into one outfit are different in size! Yes, this does mean that you can in fact match striped ties with striped shirts – as long as the widths of the stripes are different enough to set a clear contrast. Patterson that are too similar in size and style will create a “busy” look that hurts the eye.

Below we are making three suggestions for neckties to wear with your check patterned dress shirt. Please click the image to see a larger picture as well as to purchase this tie.
