Featured Wedding Story – A True Blue Love Story

Take A Peek At Janis and Jesse’s True Blue Wedding

Groom in Aqua Tie and Pocket Square

It’s official!  Janis and Jesse tied the knot in complete style. These two lovebirds were destined to be together. In fact, Jesse’s stepdad who worked with Janis, suggested that they would be great together.  -And he was right!  Jesse won Janis over instantly  upon meeting her with his fun and outgoing je ne sais quoi!  These two got married in Pointe-Claire in Quebec, Canada and picked a palette of Nautical Hues including navy blue bridesmaid dresses and bright aqua blue accessories. Did we mention that these two love to sail?!  They sailed the Greek Islands for the their Honeymoon.   We asked Janis what her favorite part about the wedding and she said “I really loved the walk down the church aisle with my dad. I also loved the beautiful speeches, the fun dancing and being with everyone I love. So hard to pick my favorite moment. But I did like the look in Jesse eyes when he saw me at the church!”

NEW Silk Glen Checks by Parsley

Typically only seen on suits, the glen check pattern is a classic design that can be found in any gentleman’s wardrobe. It is a sophisticated pattern dating back to the early 18 hundreds, first used on wool and tweed hunting jackets in the Scottish highlands. While still popular on suits, sport coats, and vests, neckwear designer Parsley decided to feature this classic pattern on one of their new silk tie collections. The designer used some of the finest silk thread for this collection – allowing for one of the most intricate fabric weaves that we have ever come across. Available in 3 colors that feature a classic charcoal and silver base with accents in either sky blue, cherry, and beige. These pieces look fantastic when worn with cardigans (as shown above), sport coats, V-necks, and modern 3-piece suits. Available in these for colors for just $24.90:

Learn The Basics of Menswear Fashion With Our Collar Chart

The Quintessential Chart For Men’s Dress Shirt Collars

Chart For Men's Collared Shirts


Navigating the world of fashion can be tricky but when in doubt, always have a handle on the basics.  We have illustrated a simple to follow Collar Chart of the nine most popular collar shirts. If you can remember and recognize these, you’re a step ahead of most.   Take a minute, to check these out and put them to memory. We’ve also picked out the best tie to wear with each collar type.

The Spread Collar has one of the widest openings so it should be paired with a standard width tie and tied in a Half-Windsor or Windsor knot.   We recommend our Glen Check Tie.

The Classic Collar pairs well with just about anything and is your most versatile collar option. We recommend our Navy and Silver Polka Dot Tie.

The Button Down Collar is the most casual of all the shirt collars and should be worn with a blazer but never a suit.  We recommend a Worsted Wool Skinny Tie.

The Mandarin Collar should never be worn with a tie. This is a good fact to know for your next Trivia Night.

The Pinned Collar adds extra oomph to a tie and has a very traditional aesthetic. We recommend pairing this collar with a regal and ornate tie like this Autumn Hued Paisley Necktie.

The Wing Tip Collar is the most formal of the collar family and should be paired with a bow tie. We recommend the classic Self Tie Black Tie.

The Tab Collar is an old school collar that gives added rise to the tie much like the Pin Collar. We recommend going with a refined and texture silk tie like this Dark Navy Silk Tie.  James Bond wear a Tab Collar and when he does, he pairs with a textured navy tie.

The Club Collar has a retro look and pairs well with skinny ties. We recommend this slim cut knit tie in ivy green.

The Contrast Collar makes a very dapper fashion statement and should be paired with a power tie. We recommend the Striped Tie In Navy and White.
