A lot has been said about the basic tie wardrobe. It is very tempting to buy the stand out colorful crazy print when starting to build the tie wardrobe. A few of those are great as accents in a collection. But because they are so memorable, I find that I don’t wear them as often and really only a few times each year. It is a sign when people say, “I remember that tie!”

The men who are consistently the best dressed build their collection on ties of high quality and simple patterns. These ties will complement shirts and suits of different patterns, textures, and shades. Avoiding the problem of having one tie to go with one suit and shirt combination. It will help put together a varied wardrobe where people will notice that you are always well dressed without necessarily paying attention to a stand out piece.

The top row above starts with solids in navy, purple, silver, green, and burgundy. It is no secret that I like solid ties. I have them in silk repp, grenadine, and silk moire. They go with everything and are the most versatile. Don’t pass up solids because they look simple. They will tie patterned shirts and suits together like no other piece.

After that are stripes in grey, navy and green with a red and blue block stripe. If you have solids taken care of, stripes in these colors are a good way to expand the collection. It can be a subtle way to express yourself with school, club, or society affiliations.

Pin dots are next in navy and burgundy. The yellow is thrown in for fun and was a special request for a client. It is subdued in person with a pale yellow. Pin dot’s versatility is second only to solids and will be a go to piece in the collection.

Everyone needs a black satin bow tie. Enough said about that. Start out with these basic pieces and look good everyday.
