Knockaround was founded in 2005 by Adam “Ace” Moyer, during his time as a graduate art student at University of California, San Diego. Merging the classic East Coast prep style of his Virginia upbringing, his interest in design and fashion, and a newfound love for the perpetually sunny, laid-back lifestyle of Southern California, Ace created a company centered around a sunglasses line that was simultaneously practical and stylish. And with the introduction of the Custom shop, Knockaround’s ever-growing fan base can create their own unique sunglasses. They generously donated four pairs of sunglasses for this giveaway!

Fall Flannel Shirts + Neckties

Mens Flannel Shirts and NecktiesDeep Charcoal Tie in Wool

 

It used to be that flannel shirts were confined to workers who held blue-collar jobs, those days of strict office wear are long gone for many employees. As offices and companies have moved toward more casual attire, some new fashion trends for men have crept into the workplace. Flannel shirts have made a comeback and are back in style this fall season! Their classic check design can easily be paired with a solid or light patterned necktie. We’ve chosen four of our favorite light grey to charcoal skinny neckties to create the perfect men’s look for Fall!

Planning a wedding for Fall? Not only do we think the natural beauty of Fall makes this season one of the best, the vibrant colors do most of the work! Don’t be afraid to use the outdoors to your advantage and fuse them into your color scheme. Combinations of berry and navy, burnt orange and grey, or forest green and taupe are iconic to this wonderful time of year. The cooler weather also allows for more creativity with fabrics and accessories. Choosing a wool suit or tweed jacket for the groom and a bridal gown with sleeves will add some individualistic style to your wedding. We’ve created a Pinterest Board dedicated to Autumn Weddings to help spark inspiration and showcase some of our favorite looks and products.

Men’s Guide to Tie Width Trends

 

Variations of Men's Necktie Widths

Necktie widths can say a lot about your fashion and style preferences as well as a glance into the era in which you grew up. We created this guide for six different widths, made popular in different decades and many are still popular today!

 

Kipper Tie

You might recognize the name Kipper Tie if you were around for the 40’s, 70’s, or the short reappearance in the early 90’s. If you can’t distinguish the name, you may recall the style. These ties could measure anywhere from 4.5” – 6” wide and sported loud colors and designs. If you like to wear your favorite animal prints and hobbies, you might enjoy this vintage style.

 

Traditional Tie 

The “standard” width for ties has varied throughout the years. During the 80’s, a traditional width would have been closer to 3.75”- 4” wide and is still a go-to by many tie purists today. If you’re into large paisley designs or plant life, there is a good chance you might find some classic items you fancy.

 

New Standard Tie

If you prefer your ties to be a happy medium all the way around – size and design – you might enjoy the new standard width of 3.25” – 3.5”. Made popular in the early 1950’s and popular still today, business professionals wore this width in solid colors.

Solid Color Ties

 

Narrow Tie

Are you leaning on the trendy fence, but not quite ready to commit? The invention of the narrow, but not skinny, tie blurs the line of past and present. Commonly around 2.75” – 3” wide, it could pass for a skinny tie for some and yet a standard width for others. If you’re indecisive, this might be your next best friend.

See one of our favorites here.

 

Skinny Tie

If you were inspired by the style of the Beatles or are hip on the current trends, the skinny tie is most likely your favorite piece to wear with a tailored suit. Originally made popular in the late 50’s and early 60’s and crafted from leather or knit wool. The skinny tie is around 1.5” – 2” wide and is back in style with unending colors and designs for round two in its claim to fame.  

 

Bolo Tie

The skinniest of skinnies, the Bolo Tie is a simple cord or leather string with metal ends with a decorative clasp or piece of jewelry. Known for its appearance in old Westerns, this item is still popular among the southwest states. If your style is simple, understated, yet determined, consider giving this a try.
