Shirt And Tie Rules

blog-innerimg1Shirt-tie combination speaks thousand words about a man. It’s a way of expressing his personality and taste.
A man could be wearing an expensive, well fitted bespoke suit but a bad shirt-tie combination is enough to ruin the complete look! If you can master the following basic steps in your shirt-tie selection process then you can play with patterns and colors and look sharp for any occasion.

Do’s –

White shirt works well with any color/pattern tie so if you are unsure about what shirt to wear, then pick a white shirt.

When wearing a solid tie with a patterned shirt make sure it picks up one of the colors in the shirt.

Solid colored and textured ties are a must in your wardrobe as they work very well with plain, checkered and striped shirts.

Navy, red & burgundy ties work well with blue shirts.

Navy & burgundy ties match pink shirts.

If you are wearing a dark colored business suit then go for solid and bold colored tie – for example black suit, white shirt and a deep red tie.

You can also team up a bright/refreshing colored tie with a light color suit for the warmer months of the year – for example a tan linen suit, white shirt and a pink tie.

Subtle stripe or checkered shirts can be work with diagonal stripe tie. Rule of thumb here is make sure tie stripe is bolder than the shirt stripe.

Don’ts –

Wearing a stripe tie with Stripe/checkered shirt is a complete no-no.

Avoid wearing a busy shirt such as checkered or striped with a pin stripe, Prince of Wales or Window-Pane suit. Try and keep the look clean and simple!

A final rule of thumb to make your custom tailored suit and shirt look even better –

Try and keep the look clean and simple! Avoid same patterned suits, shirts and ties. If you are wearing a busy shirt then try and keep the other 2 elements (suit and tie) plain, or if you are wearing a bold patterned tie then opt for a solid shirt with a lightly textured suit, such as herringbone or tweed.

Roshni and Ajay, were a joy to work with. They were very professional and incredibly friendly at the same time. They worked within some tight time constraints, and managed my Groomsmen being abroad until days before the wedding. The suits are fantastic and I cannot thank you guys enough!! Olly

I have been seeing Ajay and Roshni from Bentex for the last three years now. Every single time I am impressed with their consistent attention to detail to understanding my styling needs while keeping my budget in mind . Also their follow up is really amazing as is their fitting and fabric quality. I have recommended them to all my friends and colleagues!
