Ties for the Charcoal Suit

Spice up the Classic Charcoal-Gray Suit with One of These Ties

Unarguably, charcoal is the most popular and most common color on a mens suit. It is a color that is elegant, classy, and timeless. Because it is such a versatile color, it is typically the first suit a man will buy. Even though the charcoal colored dress suit is so common, it is anything but boring. Below are three tie choices that will add more spice and a fresh touch to the charcoal suit. For more information on each tie, please click on the picture.

red striped neck tieThe Bold Red Power Tie
Wearing a dark charcoal suit with a red tie instantly draws attention to the outfit. It is a perfect combination for those who want to get noticed but without adding too much obnoxious flash to the classic suit. The tie featured on the left is a perfect example. The color may be bright, but it is not too overpowering and too intense. The subtle striped pattern on this tie adds a nice texture to the fabric. It is a perfect tie for charcoal suits that are patternless, have checks, or a fine birds-eye pattern. The best dress shirts are either solid white or light blue. We also suggest you add a neatly folded white pocket square to this outfit.

Unlike the bright red tie featured above, this orange tie adds a little more subtle color. It is perfect for those who want to show some fresh color but also appreciate a slightly understated ensemble.
