Mens Ties for This Year’s Winter Season
When it comes to colors in fashion most designers look at nature for inspiration. While the spring is mostly paired with brighter colors such as shades of fresh greens, light yellows, peach, pink, and pastel tones, the fall and winter season mostly shows darker, much more subdued colors. In addition to colors, fabrics are usually thicker and have a stronger pattern and/or weaving texture. Classic suit colors are gray, dark blues, and olive. Common fabric weaves are herringbone pattern as well as Prince of Whales, or window-pane check . Popular fabrics are twill, worsted wool as well as Cashmere on suits, and oxford cloth and linen on dress shirts. Popular necktie colors are burned orange, burgundy, gray, navy-blue, and hunter-green. If you are looking for a great “winter tie” then we selected three great looking ties from our current fall and winter 2009 collection for you.

Solid Cherry-Red Necktie
A simple yet stunning necktie – perfect for those who appreciate uncomplicated and timelessly elegant style. This tie is handmade from finest silk yarn adding a brilliant shimmer to the cherry-red fabric. Even though this tie is patternless and solid in color it is anything but boring. This tie matches best with shades of gray and blue. One of our favorite ways to wear this tie: Medium-gray suit with fine herringbone pattern, and a blue and white striped dress shirt. Still missing something on this look? Then add a matching burgundy pocket square to the breast pocket of your jacket and you will sure receive plenty of compliments anywhere you go.

Green Tartan-Check Tie
A stunning necktie that will definitely add a fresh new look to any shirt and suit. A traditional Scottish tartan check pattern is created by weaving hunter-green, red, and gray silk yarns into one fabric. It is a tie that is perfectly suited for the colder and rainy days – those days that remind of foggy Scotland. To match this tie we suggest gray suits and dress shirts in either medium-blue, gray, or classic white. Our favorite outfit for this tie: Mens suit with 2-button jacket that is made from a coarser worsted wool or twill, and a button down dress shirt made from oxford cloth or linen – a look that will get you compliments in and outside the office.
