Get Your Foundational Pieces in Order

Assembling refined outfits every day becomes effortless when you have the right foundational pieces. Suit colours like navy blue, charcoal, and medium to light grey are staples in every modern gentleman's wardrobe. A white or light blue shirt, like the sky blue Brioni cutaway collar Oxford shirt, will make choosing a tie to round out your outfit a breeze.

The Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts

One element shouldn't draw more attention than the others. Great style doesn't mean wearing flashy or ostentatious elements. It's the ability to create an outfit pleasing to the eye by achieving harmony between different pieces.

When in Doubt, Keep it Simple

The Japanese adhere to kanso, the elimination of non-essentials. A navy suit with a white dress shirt and a navy grenadine tie is simple. That's what we love about it. It's clean and sophisticated. Confidence radiates from a curated look that's understated yet holds visual interest.

Take the guesswork out of looking polished in your suit and tie. Check out the full tie pairing guide for more pairing tips.
