There is always going to be a time and place for what I call "SHINY TIES".Those are the ties that tend to be more iridescent, have lots of satin and tend to say dressy. That's great, but as we keep moving forward,our neckwear needs to reflect the direction of clothing. I know this might sound like a contradiction, but our DRESS clothing is becoming more CASUAL. Just look around at a lot of the sportcoats today. They are using less and less construction in both the shoulders and body, the linings are being removed, the fabrics are brushed, washed out, matted, blended and are amazingly soft and technical. You can basically roll your coat into a ball, throw it in your carry-on case, pull it out, and it still looks great.In fact, a few wrinkles might even give it a little extra character.Understanding this, opens our eyes to a whole new way of seeing our accessories. Softer clothing needs softer accessories. Less shine and more texture.Less saturation and more DUSTY tones. These are the things that are going to make that new coat and tie the perfect couple. I'm not saying give up on those shiny ties; I'm saying, don't overlook or quickly pass over those other less shiny options that will only help complete and make your wardrobe a lot more interesting.
