    Striped/Patterned Shirts & Ties for the office



    Manly style advice time.


    All of my work shirts are solid colors-- the classics: white, blue, green, gray, yellow, etc. I want to start incorporating more patterned and striped shirts into my wardrobe, but I want to keep it professional and I want to know how to match ties to them.


    Anyone have good pictures, references on how to match ties to striped shirts?

        Really simple once you get the concept down, patterns are all about scale, you can wear a gingham shirt as long as the plaid, tartan, madras, tie you wear isnt the same scale ( like if you looked at the tie and shirt you wouldnt really notice a difference). Strong advice, start with the patterned shirt first and experiment with color blalancing, shirt and tie combo. I use the wifes color wheel wvwery now and then, anagolous colors are great when you dont want a monchromatic look. Once you got the color down, then move to the patterns...Your life will be alot easier...
