Necktie Emporium’s Guide to Picking Patterned Ties

Thursday, April 16th, 2015


When crafting a collection of neckties, it is important to include a few patterned ties. They’re fun and fashionable, able to fit into a variety of settings, and add a touch of personality. Additionally, there are a wide variety of classic patterns to choose from, leaving something for everybody!

Checked Ties
This pattern is common and subtle enough that it is acceptable in most conservative work environments. Men who prefer checked ties that are bolder or more noticeable can choose contrasting colors or brighter colors.

Striped Ties
Stripes complement a suit or shirt nicely. Pick a bold color with a pastel of the same hue for a smooth look. For a bolder look, pick stripes that are completely different colors. Striped ties that have subtle or coordinating colors are usually acceptable for conservative and professional work environments.

Dotted Ties
Dots offer a trendy look, which is perfect for a more modern or artistic work environment. Choose contrasting colors for a bold look or coordinated colors for a more conservative subtle look.

Paisley Ties
Paisley gives a suit or shirt an extra element of style. This pattern is usually permitted in a casual work environment, and, depending on the coloration, great for more formal events.

In addition to these favorites, there are also patterned ties with geometric shapes and quirky designs. The main rule to remember when choosing these types of ties is appropriateness for the occasion or workplace!

Men’s Easter Fashion Trends in 2015

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

As Easter approaches, men who will be attending church or family events need to prepare for the holiday. Looking your best on Easter is a must, and keeping up with the latest trends when it comes to formal wear will help you turn heads this spring. Here are some Easter fashion trends that you can incorporate into your spring look.

• Add a little color to your suit, but be careful not to overdo it. Choosing a shirt or tie in a bold color will give that bright pop that is needed in the spring, but choosing an entire suit in a bright color will just look silly.

• Be sure that your suit fits well. If you need to visit the tailor, give yourself enough time to do so before Easter arrives. It’s likely that other men will be making appointments to have their suits tailored, so you want to plan accordingly.

• A tie is a must this Easter. If you don’t know how to tie a tie, a clip-on variety will do. There are even extra long neckties available for tall men who require more length to get the appropriate shirt coverage for a put-together look.

• Don’t forget to put some focus on your footwear. Nothing is worse than pairing a nice suit with an old pair of dress shoes that have been collecting dust in your closet. A brand-new pair of wingtips completes the perfect Easter outfit for men.
