Formal Black Ties: Five Stylish Black Ties for the Modern Man
Who said that formal black ties had to be pattern-less and solid in color? We at Bows-N-Ties have picked out five stylish black ties that feature a very unique fabric texture, pattern, or cut. Each of these will set you apart without upsetting your formal dress code. Read below on how to best wear each piece. For more information, please click on the pictures below.
Monochromatic Gingham Check
A solid tie featuring a monochromatic gingham check. This piece by Puccini is perfect for all formal occasions. It is also great for a more “dressed-down” look when paired with stone gray V-neck sweater, white dress shirt, and black dress pants.
Take a close look at the fabric texture of this tie. The vertical ribbed pattern remind us of corduroy fabric. But instead of using cotton (as used for corduroy) necktie designer Cavallieri uses finest silk yarn to weave this textured fabric. It is a perfect piece for all suits in gray, charcoal, tan, and black.
Heather Textured Skinny Tie
This charcoal skinny tie is perfect for the modern man. The heather textured fabric in colors silver, charcoal, and black adds uniqueness to an otherwise sleek-modern design. We suggest you pair this piece with a modern cut (slim fit, narrow lapels, 2 button jacket), white shirt, silver tie bar, and crisp white handkerchief.
Monochromatic Houndstooth Check
Another tie out of Puccini’s textured solid collection is this black houndstooth check. The subtle houndstooth check pattern is paired with a solid black color, creating subtle detail and unique texture. It is a perfect tie for “black tie” events when combined with a solid black suit, white shirt, and white pocket square. It also looks great when paired with tan suit, white shirt, and silver tie bar – worn on a sunny summer day.
One of our favorite black solid ties that features a very unique combination of pattern and fabric texture. The three stripes are made from a shiny satin fabric, while the background is made from a more matte oxford weave. The combination of these textures perfectly compliment the modern design of this tie. While tie designer Cavallieri created this piece for their formal neckwear collection, we at Bows-N-Ties can picture this tie just as well on a more dressed down look.
