Retro Necktie + Pocket Square Mark-Down!

 

tweed-jacket-paisley-silk-tie

Here at Cheap-Neckties, we make every effort to keep looking good fashionably affordable. Over the last year we’ve added a number of supremely crafted Italian silk ties and pocket squares under $40 to our inventory. These pieces feature unique designs that usually range upwards of $100 in regular department stores. To show our dedication to luxurious style at reasonable prices, we’ve marked down two of our favorite items from Cantucci’s collection of Italian silk designs.

Vintage paisley silk tie

This Elegant Silk Tie with Vintage Paisley Print has been marked down from $20 to $15. Exotic kidney bean shaped paisleys in green, white, and blue swirl about on a bright red background, creating a retro look that’s fun to mix and match with different fabrics and textures.

We’ve styled this tie with a powder blue collared shirt, a check tweed vest, and a herringbone tweed coat, creating a sophisticated look with a creative edge. A plume of lush green with orange and blue blossoms bloom from the coat’s pocket, accentuating the necktie’s green and blue paisleys.

A retro look with paisleys and blossoms.

This British Racing Green Pocket Square has been marked down from $19.90 to $10. Its blossom pattern gives the piece a retro vibe that pairs brilliantly with tweed fabrics. Its fine silk fabric lends it elegant dimensions when furled in the coat pocket.

Satisfy Your Need for Tweed

Totally Tweed

Satisfy your need for tweed by mixing up tweed patterns and colors that clash and compliment. With fall peaking its head out and winter not far behind, the tweed pea-coats, blazers, and caps are making their appearance after hiding in back closets during the sunny months.

Harrington twill,  Prince of Whales check, or classic houndstooth –  there’s no reason you can’t wear them all at once with our latest collection of skinny tweed ties by Blackbird!

tweed (1)

Tweed features a soft, open texture that was traditionally used by the upper and middle class in the Edwardian period for outdoor leisure activities, like hunting and golfing. Tweeds popularity has withstood the centuries, and today it’s association with Sherlock Holmes as portrayed on the hit television series by Benedict Cumberbatch, as well as hipsters’ vintage sensibilities and the annual Tweed Run in London have brought the classic fabric to a contemporary light.

Commuter Wear for the Workday Warrior

commite

Ah, autumn. The wind whistles and falling leaves tap against your window as you snore in harmony with the melody of the new season – that is until your alarm clock goes off. Once you’re out of bed, you throw on yesterday’s suit and a crumpled necktie. An obstacle course of leaf mounds, pummeling wind, and pumpkin latte guzzling pedestrians await to make your work commute a harvest-time hell.

We here at Cheap Necktie’s San Francisco office know the struggle well. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of commuter friendly work wear to keep you looking fresh once you hit the office. What kind of commuter are you?

The Brave Biker 

bikerThese Levi’s Commuter Slim Fit Trousers in khaki are water resistant to keep you dry on rainy days and have reflective stripes on the cuffs for safety. A convenient back pocket strap holds your bike lock while allowing you to comfortably ride. The Giro Wind Shirt features a breathable waxed cotton that’s wind and water resistant to keep you safe from the elements. Add a trendy edge to your look by pairing it with a Blue and Charcoal Flannel Plaid Tie in a skinny width by Blackbird.

The Ride Share Rookie

These Chicken & Wafflecords by Betabrand feature a relaxed fit with a quirky chicken printed lining that makes a great conversation piece when awkward silence strikes on your morning carpool. Pair them with Betabrand’s Red Activewear Button-down Shirt and our Checkered Skinny Tie by Blackbird.

The Cross Country Commuter

Create a 1950’s inspired look for your train commute from the suburbs to the big city with this Short-Leave Pea Coat in fleece by Betabrand and a vintage fedora from Etsy. Add a contemporary spin with this winter Chambray Wool Skinny Tie in charcoal gray. Don’t forget to grab a newspaper and a pair of sophisticated spectacles for the long ride!

The Traffic Jammer

PicMonkey drive 1

When you’re under the weather and that half-hour bike ride through the snow is out of the question, drive to work in a grab-and-go black two-button blazer and a pair of Dresspants Sweatpants, from Betabrand. Made from super soft french terry cotton, these pants feel like pajamas but still look business appropriate.

Finish the look with a pair of easy-on black loafers and a Regimental Striped Tie in green. Substitute your morning coffee with a hot cup of chamomile tea.

Wedding Inspiration from Hollywood’s Favorite Ex-Bachelors

With George Clooney at the Venice Film Festival in August 2008.

This summer, Hollywood’s two favorite men finally put a ring on it. George Clooney, a notorious bachelor, married superwoman and human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in an extravagant ceremony in Venice, Italy, while bff Brad Pitt married long-time partner Angelina Jolie in a small ceremony and inexpensive (by celebrity standards) celebration in France. Follow Clooney and Pitt’s lead for your wedding day inspiration, and follow ours to get their looks at a price normal people can afford.

cloony

Is that a pre-tied bow tie I spy? While we normally recommend wearing self-tie bow ties for black-tie affairs, Clooney’s too-perfect bow is a great match with that too-perfect signature smile. Wearing a black Giorgio Armani suit with a white shirt, black oxfords, and a black bow tie, his outfit reportedly cost somewhere around $6,000. And that’s not even counting the customized gold cuff links engraved with his name in Arabic that his new bride bought him for their special day.

As a former dashing bachelor yourself, we’ve put together some options for a Clooney inspired outfit at an affordable price. A two-button black tuxedo at $143.99, a pre-tied black bow tie for $9.90, and a pair of classic gold colored cufflinks at $14.90 will get you the look for only $168.79.

Clooney

There was no new expensive tuxedo for Clooney’s friend and Ocean’s 11 co-star Brad Pitt on his wedding day. Well, there was an expensive suit, but Pitt decided to save a few grand by pulling a navy two-button Salvatore Ferragamo from his bulging red carpet wardrobe. The couple opted for a low-cost, high-reward celebration by hiring their five children as their wedding planners and using them as inspiration for their wedding garments.

BG_Angelina-Jolie-Brad-Pitt-$5M-For-Wedding-Pics-homepage

While the media couldn’t get enough of Jolie’s wedding veil, which was embroidered with a collection of their kid’s drawings by family friend Luigi Massi of Versace, the Brangelina kids also played a hand in putting together their dad’s ensemble. Pitt forgot to pack a tie for the occasion, so his oldest son happily lent him one of his own.

Although the couple decided to keep their wardrobe costs low, Angelina did surprise her new husband with a 1952 Patek Philippe timepiece worth about 3 million dollars. We’ve put together a savvy groom’s look inspired by Pitt’s wedding day for the truly frugal shopper. With a navy two-button suit by Caravelli at $109.99, a Seiko yellow gold plated timepiece for $64.75, and a Puccini kid’s tie for $9.90, you can get the Hollywood look for just $184.64.
