Winter Tweed & Floral Neckties

Not quite sure what to wear for a fancy Holiday dinner? Then local Bay Area stylist Daniel Vu has some style tips/inspiration for you. The look he decided to feature for us is a perfect juxtaposition of winter fabric with summer patterns. The heavy tweed jacket is perfect for the chilly season, while the bold floral tie adds fresh seasonal colors and unique pattern. Best of all, this look is very budget friendly of around $300 – who would have thought…

Happy Holidays from the Bows-N-Ties Style Team! We hope that Santa is bringing you some dapper accessories.

Bow Ties for Street-Style

Pebble Grain Leather Wing Tips - $99.98 Navy & Burgundy Dress Socks - $9.00 White Silk Pocket Square - $12.90 Cotton Dress Shirt by H&M - $39.95 Straight Cut Jeans by AE - $29.99 Textured Bow Tie in Mahogany - $39.90


This week’s featured look is brought to us by San Francisco Bay Area stylist, model, and blogger Daniel Vu – who perfectly paired one of CANTUCCI’s self-tie bow ties to his sophisticated streetstyle pieces. Besides showing us how to “casually” wear a bow tie, this look also shows us that it doesn’t have to cost an “arm and a leg” to be one of the best dressed dudes in town. The American Eagle Jeans, the suit jacket, the dress shirt, and the bow tie are far below $50 each. This entire look is possible even on a student’s budget, meaning there is no excuse for not dressing well. Well done Mr Vu!

Weekly Style Inspiration: Silk Scarf & Knit Tie

Navy Knit Tie Men's Silk Scarf Slim-fit Shirt Double-Breasted Wool Topcoat Herringbone Cardigan H&M Twill Pants

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!
