Wearing a Tie with Swagger

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

WowMore and more men are starting to hop on the stylish bandwagon of wearing a necktie, not because they have to, but because they chose to. It’s a style choice, and one that doesn’t go unnoticed. Pairing a necktie with a casual outfit is simply, cool, and can make an ordinary outfit look extraordinary. However, some rules do apply. If you’re considering adding a necktie into your daily wardrobe, congratulations and welcome to Necktie Emporium.  Here are a few pointers to pull off a necktie with swagger and finesse:

  • Casual and care-free is a look that many men can pull of easily. Loosening the knot and keeping the top of the placket open on the shirt is a look that screams casual cool.
  • Dark jeans can be dressy regardless of what people say. A crisp dress shirt and dark slim jeans looks perfect in the office and out. We recommend sticking with a skinnier necktie if you’re considering pulling this look off.
  • Can’t master the perfect knot? Why not consider a high quality and extra stylish clip on tie from NecktieEmporium.com? We have the best selection of clip on ties to keep you stylish and able to wear the perfect knot with ease.
  • Stick to classic patterns and colors. The wrong loud pattern can truly break any outfit.
  • Have confidence! There’s really no secret to it. You must exude confidence to pull of any style with finesse and ease.

Men’s Shoes 101

Men's Shoes 101

Neckwear is an important component to any mans wardrobe, but it isn’t the only important accessory or garment. From shirting and pants to stylish footwear, there are many crucial elements to men’s style. We have the men’s clip on ties and zipper ties covered, but when it comes to finding the perfect pair of shoes, there are a few rules to keep in mind to ensure style, comfort and longevity:

  • Consider the occasion for which the shoes will be for. Running shoes are meant for running, not to be worn with jeans or suits. If you’re shopping for work shoes, consider steel toe boots or non-slip shoes, and wear them for work only, unless they are a stylish boot that look great with a dark pair of jeans. Shop shoes for the occasion in which you’ll wear them. Dress shoes for suiting and jeans, boots for the same, and athletic shoes for athletics.
  • Quality is a major factor that should be considered when buying a pair of shoes. Often more expensive shoes are crafted from stronger and much nicer materials. Not every man can afford expensive shoes, but always try and find the best quality you can afford. Thrifting is often a great way to find expensive shoes for a lot less.
  • Fit and comfort are the most crucial elements of finding the perfect pair of shoes. Always make sure your shoes fit perfectly and are comfortable for long durations of time.
  • Take care of your shoes! Use shoe horns and store them properly to ensure their longevity. Take care of your shoes and they’ll take care of you.

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

A men’s necktie is an accessory that can be worn for any occasion, but some ties are best suited for certain events. Neckties have the amazing ability to compliment even the most casual looks, however, there are a few guidelines that should be followed to avoid looking foolish and unkempt.

  • Stay away from silky neckties, unless you’re attending a formal event. A silky necktie doesn’t typically look great when worn in a casual setting. Instead opt for a matte cotton or woven necktie.
  • A skinnier tie is best suited for a casual outfit. Wider neckties typically look out of place when worn with casual clothing.
  • If wearing a blazer, be sure you’re wearing a casual blazer. Leave the suit jackets and formal blazers for a different time.
  • Solid colored neckties are often better suited for casual wear. A solid color tie will compliment a variety of patterns and fabric.
  • Even for casual dressing, your tie should end at your belt line. The same rules apply for formal dressing. It’s crucial to buy the correct sized tie in order to look suave and not lazy.
  • A sweater instead of a jacket is a perfectly suitable way to wear a tie without looking too formal.

Men’s neckties are an accessory that can amp up any outfit! Next time you’re ready for a night out, consider wearing a neck tie. If you’ve strayed away from wearing ties due to not having the knowledge to tie a knot, consider men’s clip on ties from NeckTieEmporium.com.

Men’s Skinny Ties: Retro, Cool & Classic

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

You see them in almost every men’s style magazine, and even on your television set. Skinny neckties for men are hot neckwear accessories that show no signs of getting out of the spot light anytime soon. From the skinny tie of Don Draper to the matching skinny ties of the Beatles, skinny neckties for men help men exude a sense of cool and retro edge that a wider tie does not. When thinking about men’s skinny neckties, many people automatically think of the retro look which resembles the 60’s, however the skinny necktie was first made popular at the end of the 1950’s, greatly due to Beatlemania!

skinny ties are all the rage

Prior to the 50’s, neckties we’re typically of the wider variety. Along the way, lapels on sports coats and suits became slimmer, and neckties began to slim down themselves to help match the more European aesthetic of slimmer cut clothing. The men’s skinny tie remained extremely popular during the late 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, but eventually moved over for wider neckties in the 80’s. The popularity of men’s skinny neckties greatly decreased in the 80’s and 90’s, but eventually found their spotlight again in the early 2000’s. Today, many men opt for skinny neckties and many high fashion companies are making skinny versions of ties by the dozen. If you’re looking for a way to put your best fashion foot forward, consider trying men’s skinny neckties from NeckTieEmporium.com. If you’re worried about being able to tie your own tie, don’t fret. NeckTieEmporium.com carries a large selection of men’s skinny clip on ties!

How to Choose a Bow Tie

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Wearing a bow tie may be foreign for many men, but this sartorial accessory is a classic staple in menswear and for good reason. The pointers that go with wearing a standard necktie are also applicable when it comes to the bow tie as well. If you’re interested in wearing a bow tie for men but don’t know what to look for, follow this simple guide:

bow tie for men

  • There are 3 types of bow tie; the self tie, clip on bowtie, and the pre-tied bow tie. Many men prefer the self-tie versions of the bow tie, but tying the perfect bow can be tedious and nearly impossible. Clip on bowties are great choices for both men and children alike.
  • The width of your bowtie should never overcome the width of your face and should be smaller than the width of your collar. An oversized bowtie will look ridiculous and unflattering.
  • Bowties come in a variety of fabrics and patterns. Flannel, cotton and seersucker are popular choices for daily worn bowties whereas silk is essential for formal and classier events. Patterns like paisley and stripes are also popular when it comes to bowties.
  • Choose a bow tie that correlates well with the colors in your outfit. Never choose as bowtie that is too bright and overpowering. Like most accessories in men’s style, bowties should emphasize your style and not overshadow your entire outfit.
  • A bow tie can be worn for a variety of occasions. Pairing a bow tie or clip on bow tie with a suit or tuxedo is an excellent choice for more formal events. A bow tie worn with jeans and sports coat is also a dapper and popular choice for more laid-back occasions.
