Hello to everyone, hope you all had a great day and it’s now time for the latest installment from the Don. Today I’ll be focusing on different ties for different seasons of the year, and fall has to be one of my favorites for this, so without further adieu:
As we can see here, a lot of grey was going on today but here is the key to pulling that off, different patterns and different shades of grey are the key to avoid looking like you dressed up as Smoke. And of course using the red tie (which I will get more into later) as the stand out piece just really puts it all together.
and the bottom part of the outfit:
black and red argyle socks with the classic, black lace-ups, this kind of shoes goes with anything under the sun, everyone should have a pair just remember to polish them properly every once in a while!
Back to the tie, with fall hitting and the temperatures going down here in Montreal, I like to bust out my wool and knitted ties. Today was the first day since last winter that I busted out my red plaid wool tie.
When the cool weather hits, it’s a good thing to mix it up with the material of your ties, don’t always limit yourself to striped silk, go nuts with wools and tweeds, mixing it up with plaid or houndstooth patterns, once again my go to supply for those kinds of ties is The Tie Bar. They’ll give some texture to your ties and that is definitely not a bad thing!
The neat thing about this tie is that it’s vintage as evidenced on the label, and it cost me only $10 on eBay, going to show once again that style doesn’t have to cost a fortune, pre-owned ties can be had on the cheap on eBay and still look good today.
That just about wraps it up for today, stay cool folks, and as always, look dapper!
