The Perfect Tie for Every Outfit

Most guys don’t wear ties every day so when you get a chance to look a little bit spiffy, I think it’s important to make the best of it. How I judge a tie is by the number of compliments I get on it. Average ties blend with your look. Great ties create your look.
This past week, I was lucky enough to stumble across a fantastic piece from an independent Canadian brand, Tartan Grand. They call it the Kensington Handmade Tie and it’s a 100% wool skinny tie that I love to wear with white and neutral coloured shirts. The first thing that caught my attention was the subtle details of the design. It’s a salt and pepper-ish light grey with little specks of colour that make the tie really stand out.
And I was extremely impressed with the quality of the wool construction. With a lot of the wool ties I come across, the wool is either too soft or too tough and often a little too thick. This one is a balanced piece. What’s more important in fashion than balance?
It’s a versatile piece that works well with casual and formal outfits. I’ve worn it to both with excellent results.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with what I got. You can buy it here for a $34: http://tartangrand.com/product/kensington-tie/ and you can use my exclusive promo code “MENSTYLE1” for 15% off. Watch out for a contest for a free tie next week!
