In addition to making a sweet cigar box Ralph Lauren will be dressing the US Olympic Team for the upcoming Winter Games. (Check out the collection at Ralph Lauren) This 3 1/2″ wide, 100% silk, Italian made, academy style tie is a great way for you to support the US Olympic Team without having to throw on a bunch of red, white, and blue. So instead of wrapping yourself in a flag while the teams compete you can wear the clothes you would normally wear to work and let your neck wear make the statement.
The cold weather is coming but a scarf isn’t the only thing you should be wrapping around your neck. If you haven’t yet ventured into the world of wool ties for this Fall season then you should seriously consider doing so for the Winter. Wear a wool tie with a glen plaid, houndstooth, or candy stripe print with a solid slim fitting white shirt and a dark suit. Make sure when buying a wool tie that you don’t buy a tie that is too wide, thin is in. Check out the tie above by Band of Outsiders or take a look at J. Crew for a lower price point.
Why would any man settle for a tie that’s only half perfect for the suit they’re wearing it with? Thomas Pink now allows you customise a tie and choose between patterns, background colour, and pattern colour. This way, you can find the perfect match of colors to go with your favorite shirt, especially if the shirt incorporates different colors. The ties are made of 100% English silk, are hand-made, and take about 3-4 weeks to produce for you. Each tie has a “Personally Pink” detailing on the backside.
