Today we stumbled across this uber dapper ensemble via Club Monaco’s Tumblr page. It inspired us to make this our featured “Look of the Week”. What we love about this ensemble is the combination of Autumn colors with unique patterns and fabric texture. Take the rugged textured knit tie for instance which is contrasted with the smoother satin-silk scarf. Also great is the effective layering of knit cardigan with a heavy double-breasted wool coat. Not only is it stylish, but also very comfortable on chillier days. If we could only add two things to this look, then it would be a pair of light brown colored buck-skin gloves, as well as a felt fedora hat in either stone-gray or midnight blue. Even without these two accessories, however; a truly dapper ensemble that most certainly will get you lots of compliments. Well done Club Monaco stylist!

With the 2014 Wedding Season on the horizon, we at Bows-N-Ties have been working overtime to ensure we have all the right groom and groomsmen accessories that perfectly complement all the exciting new wedding hues. Just today we have added neckties and bow ties that complement all of J.Crew’s new wedding colors. New are ties in Coral Sunset, Caribbean Sand, Crushed Berry, Tea Rose, Nightfall Blue, Scenic Aqua, and Smokey Charcoal.
Here are Some of our Favorite New J.Crew Bridal Hues:
A lovely new hue that looks more tan than yellow. We think of it as a truly timeless color that is not just lovely for on the bridesmaids dresses, but also makes for a wonderful necktie colors. Below are four of our favorite ties to complement J.Crew’s “Caribbean Sand”:
Compared to this designer’s previous coral hues, Coral-Sunset is much brighter. It is a truly lively color that is perfect for summer beach weddings. While a truly lovely color for bridesmaids dresses, it is indeed a tricky and very unusual color for men’s ties. Nevertheless, we worked with our designers to create a few pieces that will complement nicely. Below are four of our favorite ties in “Coral Sunset”:
Scenic aqua is a fresh mint hue that is perfect for spring and summer weddings. Not only do we love this color on bridesmaids dresses, but it can look equally stunning on your groom and groomsmen accessories. Below are a few of our favorite ties to complement this new hue from J.Crew’s 2014 bridal collection:
A great color not just for summer, but we actually love this hue just as much when worn towards the later part of Fall and early winter. It is a purplish red that some designers sometimes call simply “berry”, “sangria”, as well as “wine”. It is a perfect necktie color, and that not just for your wedding day. These ties look especially dashing when paired with suits in either navy or tan. Here are three of our favorite ties to complement this new bridal hue:

We are thrilled to have spotted this Autumn plaid tie on The Style Blogger – worn by one of NYC most dapper dudes, Marcel Floruss of OneDapperStreet.com. The colors, fabric texture, and materials are all perfect for the chilly season. We especially like the the leather trench coat by Alexander Wang, which Marcel apparently scored at the designer’s warehouse sale last year. Here is what Marcel had to say about this look:
Thank you Marcel for being such an inspiration to young men to dress up.

Yesterday’s post, which featured Puccini’s new repp-stripe colors, inspired us to take a closer look at this traditional tie design. Because they are so versatile and timeless, repp ties should be part of every man’s tie collection. While they are typically very easy to wear, mix, and match, there are some looks that are especially dapper. Inspired by all the great ensembles using repp ties, we created a Pinterest Board showing you some of our favorite looks showcasing these accessories. Here are some some of our favorite examples found on Tumblr, Instagram, and Pinterest.
Two great examples of wearing a crested repp striped tie. The classic “British” look of these pieces is best paired with “Country” fabrics such as tweed, herringbone, and worsted wool. Other things we like about these two examples is the tasteful layering (left) as well as the use of a button down dress shirt made from oxford cloth (right).
A great play of color and texture! The kelly-green and yellow repp-stripe tie is paired with a Prince of Whales Check jacket, micro-gingham shirt, mustard colored chinos, and yellow floral pocket square.
Red colored repp-stripe regimantal tie paired with cardigan sweater-vest, midnight blue blazer, and complementing silk pocket square in red and blue. The pin-stripe pale-blue and white shirt adds yet another interesting pattern to thus uber-dapper ensemble.

Just in time for the changing season we are thrilled to be featuring yet another stunning design collection by one of our favorite neckwear designers: CANTUCCI‘s new Autumn Florals – which are available in three elegant seasonal colors as necktie, bow tie, pocket square, as well as men’s silk scarf.
A perfect fall accessory that pairs well with suits and sports coats in navy and gray. Our favorite look for this tie however, consist of a vintage herringbone textured blazer, pale blue and white gingham check shirt, dark wash jeans, and brown brogue dress shoes.
No need to hide in a monotone outfit of grays and blues when temperatures drop! Instead add some seasonal colors and unique pattern to your ensemble with this handcrafted silk tie. Like all other items out of this collection, Cantucci sourced the fabrics from Arte Seta in Como, Italy – one of the world’s leading silk mills that also produce for brands like Brioni.
CANTUCCI’s Autumn florals are available as necktie, bow tie, pocket square, and silk scarf. Besides this indigo-navy the designer also offers this print in ice-blue as well as maroon-red.
