Matching Shirts, Ties and Pocket Squares

Matching Shirts, Ties and Pocket Squares

The constant struggle of pattern matching your accessories is over.

When putting your outfit together you should start from the outside, with your blazer. After you have chosen the right one, pick a shirt and then a tie and a pocket square. But first, some guidelines (we try to keep away from rules). Try to avoid pattern in similar sizes, it's a risk that it will disturb the overall impression. Go for a tie which is darker than your shirt and try to keep away from a tie and pocket square in the same pattern, well matched accessories will look harmonic and not like they are cut from the same fabric.

A solid shirt worn with a block striped tie leaves room for a playful polka dot pocket square. Flannel Spread Collar Shirt - Handrolled Striped Wool Tie - Large Cotton/Silk Polka Dot Pocket SquareA small patterned shirt is advantageously worn with a tie with a large scale design. In a perfect world you will also find a tonal match between the shirt and tie, in this case blue. A solid light blue pocket square is simple but puts the outfit together. Mini Gingham Check Semi Spread Collar Shirt - Handrolled Habutai Washed Silk Tie - Plain Linen Pocket Square.A wide bengal stripe or a big gingham check like this works well with solid colored tie, this would not have to be "safe" or "boring", find a tie with a nice herringbone or a garza structure. Pick up the brown tone in a gemetric pocket square to keep the look together. To much patterns for you? A white pocket square is never wrong. Gingham Check Flannel Spread Collar Shirt - Handrolled Grenadine Silk Tie - Wool Geometric Pocket Square.This look shows that more could be better. Three different patterns could be tricky but in this case where we have a nice color match it looks elegant. The blue keeps it together and the red and bronze are in harmony with the brown jacket. Bengal Stripe Button Down Shirt - Six Fold Handrolled Small Pattern Silk Tie - Large Silk Paisley Pocket SquareA complete tonal look might not be for everybody but it's a nice way to flirt with the high fashion scene, where you mainly see people wearing all black. Solid Spread Collar Shirt - Handrolled Wool Flannel Printed Tie - Wool Paisley Pocket Square.
