The striped tie has for some time been associated with the overly colorful preppyish look that dominated classical menswear some years ago. In the atelier, we have always had a soft spot for Ivy League style, however, we never much cared for color bonanza. In this season’s collection of ties we dig out some of the, in our opinion, most wearable and elegant stripes.
Even though the color scheme is muted, we would still suggest matching the striped tie with a solid color jacket and shirt as presented here, here and here. As mentioned previously in our JOURNAL, we argue that independent garments should not “fight” over overall attention in an outfit. If one garment makes a statement in terms of pattern or color, the others generally should not. Having this in mind, one should not fear wearing a bolder stripe. As Luca di Montezomolo clearly demonstrates here, few things are as elegant.
The full selection of ties is now available in our atelier at Kommendörsgatan 21, Stockholm, and soon online.
