Pair it and Wear it!

September 9th, 2013
    "What are the rules for pairing shirts and ties? I always feel like I'm going to make a mistake and look bad at work" - TPM, Manhattan 
    Rule #1: It is all about the scale.  Either the shirt or the tie should have a larger pattern. The easy route is to pair a small patterned shirt with a large scale tie.   
    Rule #2: Pair a light colored shirt with a dark colored tie.  When wearing a tie in a conservative office setting, you should opt for light colored dress shirts: white, blue, light pink, and light lavender and match it with a more saturated or darker colored tie.
    Take a look at some of the examples below:
    EXAMPLE 1:  Rule #1 - Shirt has thin stripes and tie has larger stripes.  Rule #2 - Shirt is lighter than the tie.
    EXAMPLE 2: Rule #1 - Shirt has thin stripes and tie has a larger pattern. Rule #2 - Shirt is lighter than the tie.
    EXAMPLE 3: Rule #1 - Shirt has a small scale check pattern and tie has larger stripes. Rule #2 - Shirt is lighter than the tie. Pretty simple! Tie pattern should be larger and darker than the shirt pattern and color. If the patterns are too close in scale and color, people will have a tough time looking at you. Next month, we will review some classic color combinations between shirts and ties.  Also, please send us your style and fit questions and we will do our best to answer them.
