Textured Skinny Madras Collection

PLAID-NECKTIES
New Skinny Madras Available in: LIGHT BLUE | LIME GREEN | PINK

Designer BlackBird has done it again! They have pleasantly surprised us last week when we received their latest textured madras collection. The designer paired a silk and linen Jacquard weave with bold colors – arranged with a contemporary madras plaid. Picture these paired with your beige or tan summer suit, white shirt, and a colorful pocket square in your breast pocket – we bet that you will be the best dressed man at the party. Like these ties?

Featured Wedding Color – Chocolate

Chocolate Makes For A Divine + Delicious Wedding Hue

Chocolate Hued Wedding Inspiration

Chocolate Browns make for a decadent wedding hue whether you are planning a rustic outdoor celebration or an indoor formal affair.  Chocolate pairs exquisitely well with ivories and whites and adds a richness and depth to any occasion.  For an outdoor wedding setting,  have the groomsmen wear light brown suits with dark brown ties and pocket squares that coordinate with the bridesmaid dresses. Also, incorporate distressed wood and perhaps use your dog as the ring bearer. How adorable is that?!  For formal occasions, we recommend a chocolate brown tux with a chocolate brown bow tie and white pocket square.   Indulge in the riches of having a chocolate and white themed wedding.  For more ideas on groomsmen accessories and wedding ideas for Chocolate Hued Weddings, check out our Pinterest Board.   Here are some of our most popular chocolate hued accessories.

Get This Look – Style Icon Richard Avedon

Richard Avedon Was Master of Simple Menswear Fashion

Avedon Fashion Style

 

Black Necktie from Cantucci

Classic White Dress Shirt from Macy’s

Black Dress Pants from Topman

Richard Avedon was an American fashion and portrait photographer who created a fashion legacy built upon sophisticated simplicity.  Mr. Avedon had an unswerving loyalty to the simple classics of the white shirt, the black tie, the black slacks and thick rimmed glasses. This style became iconic making Richard Avedon one of the most influential style icons of the century with both his photographs and his appearance.  We highly recommend that every man should own a classic black tie, black trousers and white shirt as they are quintessential menswear components. Take a page out of Avedon’s book and steer clear of the trends and create a signature look that is one hundred percent yours. And who knows, you might very well become a style icon yourself.
