Dressing for high profile events is important and women have a lot more things to consider then men. We all have in mind that we will be wearing some variety of suit and dress shirts. While coming to the end, when it’s the turn to choice a lie, some men are confused. They want to choose a tie which will enhance their appearance. One of the huge mistakes seen is that, men go for the wrong tie, while aligning their neckwear to the suit in their clothing wardrobe.


If you want the tie to match your rich wardrobe, you should think twice before going to purchase it. The song that is being played is don’t fall for the tie part because it looks nice but buy that neckwear which is fitting right to the color of your suit, matching your body style, pattern and also which is looking elegant on your suit and shirt.


Aligning your dress shirt, tie and suit is not any kind of rocket science. This part of life only requires some basic understanding of color, pattern and proportion which can lead to having a rich variety of clothes in the closet. Kick off with an easy to match suits and shirts after this it’s the turn to add color of comfortable neckties that increases the outfit you will be going have on you.

It is the same to the proportion of a man’s body mass with clothing style. After this you will be able to choose your necktie’s length and width. A person with large suit and an open front will be going to have an excellent appearance with a broad tie, more than average and that will be just long enough to touch his belt’s buckle. A person with less body mass will face the opposite problem.  Petite gentlemen should search for a smaller necktie that has the quality of being skinnier and shorter in length. And rest of men who are near to average in shape.


Proportion will become an issue after purchasing for a high profile designer or choose vintage blocks from thrift shops. Average masculine men should go for the tie, starting from a width of 3 till 3.75 inches. Anything else than this thinner or wider is for those who be asking for it. And if you are in a hurry while shopping for necktie and want a fast method to measure the broadness, take out a dollar bill. And if the tie is near to Washington’s nose then you are ready to wear something else, drop the tie.


Tie’s color scheme


We don’t have the answer to tell you which color will fall best with the provided suit. There are two methods to choose the color

·         What kind of color complexion he is having with the color combination.

·         What kind of message he is trying to give.


For quiet but elegant look, think to have semi solid and a bit patterned green and blue tie with smart blue colored clothing. And you want to snatch the lime light of the event, then on a light colored shirt, go for a stark contrast of bold red colored. The red necktie which many call the “power tie” This mixture end very well for the host and it didn’t let them look away.


And if this works out fine for your taste, you will pounder to mimic your natural contrast levels. Men with light skin and dark hair are high contrast and they will have their best appearance while opting for the color scheme which have clearly define lines within it. Men with fair skin and colored hair have low contrast and they will go for monochromatic and pastel color combination. If you did not fall in either of the upper categories and you are having medium to dark colored skin with dark hair, you can wear both the high and low contrast necktie with suit or shirt mixture.


Tie pattern


Going for the tie with heavy patterns is the difficult tie wear problem for majority men. And this problem is widely seen in the tie sales when strong pattern neckties are not selling while semisolid or solid ties sales are up. It is very much rare to see them and most of the time when they are worn, their complete benefit isn’t taken. And when they are worn right, these will work like a charm and will give life to the dull suit. The theme to have patterned tie is to make sure that necktie’s own color isn’t clashing with it and also make it sure that the necktie’s pattern do not come in the way with any pattern in your suit or shirt.


The Dress Shirt


While buying the dress shirt, you should keep it in mind that it has to match your tie; after the jacket. It is the utmost important clothing item while deciding which tie pattern and color you are going to wear. After sometime you might take off your jacket but you will not take you shirt off. And without the jacket on your body, your shirt will be the only thing complementing your tie. If there is some color dispute, it will erode away.

Kicking off, the quickest to match are solid and white can match anything. Off-white and pastel colored shirts are easy to match as well. Light blue can have some problem with the tie. You are always willing to create some boundaries between tie and shirt fabrics.


The suit


Navy blue and gray, dark solid color suits match well with most of the color tie variety by nature. It is like a piece of cake to match them, because mostly the makers think that their suits should be worn with one. Take a dark gray or black suit with dark ties.  If you are thinking to mix dark tie with black or grey suit, then search for a dark tinted red or deep purple.
