The Modern Man’s Guide to: Ties
You don’t settle for half measures in your London escorts, you don’t settle for them in your other clothes. We know what you’re thinking: “I can buy a tie without any help, I don’t need to be told how to do that.” It might be true, you can pick out a black one to go for a funeral or a red one to go with a red shirt. Congratulations, you have the sartorial elegance of a secondary school boy. What about the rest though, where do you go after that? For most men, this is the cut off point., yet you’ll wear the same old collection of ties day in, day out.
After all, it’s just an accessory. What really matters is the suit, right? The shirt, the jacket, the trousers. Even the shoes mean more. A good tie is nothing more than an add on, in many cases you can even just go without one. That might be true, but it’s oddly the insignificance of the item that makes it so vital. You don’t need one, so it exists purely for style. So when you choose something plain and boring, you’re basically saying: “I don’t care about how I look.” If you can tell a lot about a man from his shoes, his tie tells you even more.
So here are our rules for getting a great tie. Don’t stick to them religiously, but they should give you a good idea.
- Black is for funerals, formal events and work events. You can pull it off as a style symbol, but it’s hard. There’s a reason why so many choose not to even try it. Unless you have the perfect suit, the perfect build and are chiseled beyond belief, we wouldn’t recommend trying it. The potential for failure is just too high.
- Patterns have the highest ceiling and the highest floor. What we mean by this is that a great pattern can look better than almost anything else. But at the same time, an ill-suited pattern can look worse than anything. You may well end up looking like a pair of curtains have attached themselves to your shirt.
- With that in mind, choose patterns that work with what you’re wearing. Something overly elaborate is going to look very cluttered next to a woven suit, whereas something simple will look fantastic. Likewise, a more complex pattern is going to do wonders to brighten up a more simple jacket and shirt.
- Colours are key, it’s all about being complimentary. Think of it this way, you naturally pair well with a certain type of London escort. They just work for you, and the result is always better. Well ties and suits are much the same. A charcoal grey suit pairs very nicely with blues for example. A lighter one might go better with something bolder and contrasting like red.
- If in doubt, wear the suit in question along and ask for help. A shop attendant at any reputable outlet is sure to be able to assist you.
