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.

Choosing A Necktie Wardrobe

Tuesday, March 10th, 2015

CaptureAt some point in life, many men find themselves wearing ties on a daily basis. Whether it is a personal choice to start dressing up or it is a workplace requirement, choosing a wardrobe of ties requires some thought.

Unless there are specific color and design requirements for work, men should choose ties that reflect their personality and coordinate with their clothing. The first step is to set a budget amount to spend. It is easy to find many more ties than the budget allows, but make a priority list of what must be purchased now and what can be purchased later on a whim. When starting out on a smaller budget, aim for ties that are solid colors. They can be neutral tones, pastel colors, classic colors or dark colors. Alternately, choose one of each. For example, a man who has a budget limit that allows only four ties to start may choose gray, pastel yellow, royal blue and dark red.

When it is possible to choose a few designs in addition to a few solid colors, stripes are a safe choice for most workplaces. If the workplace encourages trendy designs or individual style, find what is most appealing. Many beginners find clip-on ties easier to use when they first start wearing ties.

Necktie Emporium Guide to Winter Suits

When it comes to suiting, it is most certainly seasonal. There are suits you would never wear in the winter that you would wear in the summer and vice versa. The perfect winter suit will be designed from warmer, thicker fabric and is designed to keep you warm and toasty against the frigid elements outside these four walls. In the winter, it’s best to avoid fabrics like linen, polyester, and chambray, and embrace a more winter friendly fabric.

· Wool: The quintessential winter fabric. Wool is renowned for its natural ability to drape nicely, maintain perfect form, and able to be spun as loose or tight depending on preference.

· Cashmere: Although more expensive than some other fabrics, cashmere is coveted for it’s soft texture and unparalleled warmth. It’s also very important to take great care of cashmere suits, as they are not as durable as other winter friendly suits.

· Tweed: Classic, warm, and extra stylish. Tweed is a magnificent winter suit fabric that always adds a timeless look to the wearer. Tweed is thick, warm, and water resistant, making it a winter no-brainer.

· Flannel: Flannel is well known for its amazing protection against cold. Flannel has the durability of wool, but the softness of cashmere, and can really add a timeless appearance to the wearer.

Brightening Up an Outfit with a Necktie

Friday, December 12th, 2014

businessman-481113_640When a man feels confident not only within his own personality, but with the outfit he’s wearing, he can feel unstoppable. There’s a reason why some of the most powerful leaders are always seen sporting a perfectly tied necktie. Simply put, a necktie demands attention and makes a man look handsome, strong, and well-dressed. Did you know that a necktie could actually transform an entire outfit into something more? Neckties have the power to brighten up a dull or average outfit, and at Necktie Emporium we make it easier and less expensive to do so.

If you’re a fan of wearing darker clothes, there’s really not too much happening with your outfit. Darker outfits are a safe bet at looking great, but if you want to stand out from the pack, a necktie can make that happen. Try wearing a patterned necktie in bright colors, or even a red clip-on to really make your outfit pop. If you’ve ever seen a man wearing a traditional black suit and colored necktie, you know exactly how great the combination can be. Neckties not only have the ability to brighten up an outfit, but many neckties even add texture to outfits, which can result in a completely different and extraordinarily stylish look.

Every Detail Counts: Necktie Emporium Guide to Socks

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

When it comes to flawless style, every detail counts! From your necktie to your socks, every detail goes noticed. If you’re new to the world of style or are a seasoned veteran, we’re here to help you polish your appearance. Below are a few rules and tips when it comes to keeping your sock game on point.

Business socks

  • The key to coordinating your socks to your outfit is to go with colors that contrast each other, but still look great together. Think grey socks with navy pants, and vice versa.
  • Never wear athletic socks with dress shoes! Actually, there is never really the need to wear white socks at all, unless you are indeed doing something athletic. Instead, stick with solid colors and patterns. Polka dot socks are fun and can be worn casually and formally.
  • Shorter pants are making a big impact in the men’s fashion world, and exposed socks and ankle are very popular. If you want to try this new trend, make sure your socks are worth showing. Fun patterns or unique socks can really make or break an outfit, especially if your socks are visible to the world.
  • The old rule of thumbs when wearing a suit is to match your socks to your pants, although this is an antiquated rule, it is still foolproof. If you don’t want to be too exciting or fashion forward you can always go with the old rule.

From the best selection of clip-on ties and more to the best resources to keep you looking your best, NecktieEmporium.com takes pride in helping men become well-dressed gentleman.

Types of Ties Every Man Needs In His Wardrobe

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

self-1348197-mEvery man probably owns a necktie, or at least should own a necktie. There are many different types and styles of neckties, but there are truly only a handful of ties that you should have in your wardrobe. These are 5 types of neckties that will fit into any man’s wardrobe for any situation:

  1. The navy tie- A navy tie is the perfect option for formal and informal events. Whether you wear a tie in the office with your fellow cubicle mates, or choose to wear a tie for a night out on the town, you cannot go wrong with a versatile and always stylish navy blue tie.
  2. The black tie- Perhaps more reserved for events that are a little more formal than not, a black tie is the most popular menswear accessory. Black ties look great with a variety of different outfits, and can be dressed up or down depending on the width of the tie. More fashion forward oriented men would be best off with a skinny black tie as opposed to a classic and full width tie.
  3. The patterned tie- patterned ties are a great way to break up the monotony of an ordinary or plain outfit. Patterns have a lot of personality and can look great in formal situations and also informal situations.
  4. The cotton/wool tie- Not necessarily a color, but cotton ties are the quintessential summer accessory. Cotton is lightweight and cool, and looks great with a pair of jeans or a suit. On the opposite side, a wool tie is the perfect quintessential tie for cooler months.
  5. The bowtie- Bowties are making a big come back in men’s style, and for good reason. The bowtie can help exude class and elegance, while also keeping you stylish and cool.

face of a fashionable young man holding his hatIt’s hard to believe, but summer is almost gone! However, fall is right around the corner, and this season is one that presents men with many rugged and masculine clothing options and colors. If you’re looking to upgrade your fall wardrobe, it’s best to stick to the classics. Here is our guide to building a classic fall wardrobe:

Neckties: Of course we’re going to start with neckties! Fall is full of rich and warm colors, and we carry a large selection of handsome clip on ties and traditional neckties in very fall friendly colors. Wool and other heavy materials are also quintessential fall materials.

Sweaters: Sweaters are a staple in every man’s wardrobe. For the fall, we’re a big fan of the chunky knit cardigan, which can be worn as a jacket on warmer days. V-neck sweaters and cardigans pair exceptionally well with neckties, so you can look very put together easily.

Denim: The denim jacket has made a huge comeback, and we’re big fans of this classic menswear staple. You can layer the jacket under a sports coat for the office, and wear it off the clock for a cool laidback look. We’re also big fans of wearing dark denim jeans with neckties and sweaters, so make Fall a very denim season.

Shoes: Boots are in! If you don’t own a pair of stylish and classic boots, it’s time to make an addition to your wardrobe.

yhst-19093679602615_2269_232947205

Casual:

  1. Basic button up shirt. You can also choose a plaid pattern that includes similar colors. We would go with a solid navy blue dress shirt or a classic white or light blue oxford.
  2. Khaki pants or dark denim jeans are perfect.
  3. Boat shoes or oxfords. Sockless is a great way to go to encompass the classic American prep look.

Formal:

  1. Are you going to a summertime wedding? A khaki or light grey suit is our number choice.
  2. The navy and red tie pair well with khaki or grey, and can help you stay formal yet seasonal.
  3. We would go with a nice pair of cordovan or brown double monk straps or suede bucks.

Date Night:

  1. The goal here is to strike the balance between casual and yet a little formal.
  2. A well-fitting unconstructed blazer in a tan or grey color are perfect for the warmer season. If it’s cooler out, you can never go wrong with tweed.
  3. Dark Jeans are highly recommended, and make sure they’re slim.
  4. A crisp dress shirt in a solid color or pattern are perfect. Remember, mixing patterns involves a little skill and confidence.
  5. A nice oxford or buck is the shoe of choice.
