Here are 6 shirt and tie combos to make your mornings just a little bit easier.

Silence and Noise

One of the best ways to pick your ties is to pick a colour in the shirt and find it in the tie. In this example, the shirt was quite loud so we opted for the navy in a quiet micro-dot pattern. We’re adding texture but not introducing another loud pattern.

Checks and Balances

Stripes and grid check work really well when the proportions are different. Large stripes on the tie overpower the smaller grid check in the shirt. The brown ties it all together.

Drawing the line

The stripe in this shirt is so subtle you might consider it a solid. The bold graphic print tie reminds us of those epic 80s school photos.

Let your tie talk

Sometimes a hand stitched dress shirt like these ones from Stenstroms just need a perfect compliment. Tonal grey and blue work perfectly together. Use your colour wheel and pair with a complimentary colour.

“If there is one consistent expression of a man’s sartorial acumen, it’s the way in which he pairs his shirt with his tie.” – Esquire

Colours, prints and patterns can be confusing on a regular day, so when it comes down to mixing them together, you can only imagine the sheer chaos. Learning to successfully match your shirts and ties is an undeniable art, fortunately, it’s one you can easily learn. Getting creative with your shirt and tie combinations is a great way to showcase your personal style and to separate yourself from your peers- especially if you work in an industry that requires you to wear one 5-days a week.

To get you started here are 5 tips and tricks you can employ to help you navigate this realm:

  1. Your tie (typically) should always be darker than your shirt
  2. Match a detail in the tie with the dominant colour of the shirt
  3. Always pair larger patterns with smaller ones. Avoid mixing patterns that have identical proportions
  4. Vary pattern type. Avoid having the same pattern appear in both your shirt and your tie
  5. When outfitting with a suit or blazer- ensure that 2 of the 3 items have the same colour scheme

Stenstroms Shirts

April 22, 2014

Stenstroms shirts are a combination of genuine craftsmanship exquisite fabrics.

The year was 1899. Tailor August Stenström of Helsingborg was swamped with orders. His reputation for making the best, most fashionable shirts had spread far and wide, and all the most elegantly dressed men wanted a Stenströms shirt. That same year, the first Stenströms factory was built in the heart of Helsingborg. By 1912, it was Scandinavia’s largest shirt factory and employed 140 people. Today, over 100 years later, their reputation for unique quality has spread far beyond the country’s borders. Each Stenströms shirt undergoes more than 60 separate production stages, 25 on the collar alone, to give it that special feel which is so characteristic of a Stenströms shirt.

These shirts are undoubtedly for those who seek the finer things in life. Quality and style are a mark of well-being; feeling well dressed at work and comfortable during your leisure time. Stenströms mainly uses 100% Two-fold cotton fabrics, most of them woven from the finest Egyptian cotton. Fabrics are supplied exclusively by Europe’s quality leading manufacturers and their demands on quality and design are well known among weavers. The combination of genuine craftsmanship and exquisite fabrics with fashion consciousness makes a shirt from Stenströms more than just a shirt. A Stenströms shirt is part of your lifestyle.

Style Tips

Normally the sartorial territory of ship captains and French film stars, the rarified double breasted blazer is hitting city streets in updated, more ­­­­off-beat versions. The spring/summer trend is still ultra refined, but now works with denim (in a shorter length), work-worthy suiting, sleek social or imposing formal looks. The DB blazer elevates the simple to slick- there is an interpretation for every man.
