Bow Tie

What is Paisley?

The distinguishable paisley pattern will stand out amongst crowds. The origin of this pattern began in Iran and became very popular in  the 18th and 19th century. The most frequent question I run across in reference to paisley pattern ties, bow ties, and pocket squares is when can I wear them? What or how can I wear them ? The answer that I give ... Wait for it .... anything your heart desires.  

But seriously, there's levels to this paisley game so let me give you some direction.  Shirt styles you can wear paisley patterns with 

  • Stripe Shirts recommended  
  • Solid Shirts recommended  
  • Gingham Shirts Recommended  
  • Floral Shirts be cautious  

When putting together a  SharpCrispClean outfit with paisley accessories aim to keep the outfit simple. (I always encourage adding a splash of color) 

Paisely pattern accessories at times, contain multiple colors in it's display. Use this to your advantage and draw out the smallest color combination, which will essentially make the outfit stand out in a SCC type way.  

Paisely pattern accessories are one of my top choices because it demands attention, demonstrates personality and shows people that you have skills to pay the bills. 

The question I ask you now after reading this .., When's the next time your wearing Paisley?

The Love of the Bow Tie

When you wear a bow tie, doors open for you. Your posture is a little more erect; your shoulders are a little further back; your style is a little more dynamic. It’s about the reestablishment of the gentleman.
— Dhani Jones

The bow tie hints at intellectualism, style, individualism and confidence. A type of necktie that is acceptable for numerous events and makes the outfit #SharpCrispClean. Self tie bow ties show the artistic side of an individual and suggest technical acumen.

The bow tie is not for the individual just starting to develop a sense of style. Before adding one to your wardrobe be sure to master the art  of professional and cosmo wear. The bow tie exhibits versatility. The man who wears bow ties is not afraid to experiment. The love of the bow tie has spread like wild fire. The love of the bow tie comes from people wanting to be different and expressing their personality. I compare bow tie shopping to a buffet. I say this because just like a buffet you can choose what you want. In regards to bow ties. In regards to bow ties you choose the material, pattern, color, and what you want to wear with it.
