Versace, Versace Medusa Head on Me Like I’m ‘Luminati

Perhaps you don’t ball as hard as Drake and Migos with their “pillows Versace, sheets are Versace…shirt and shoes Versace.”

But you can add that dash of Italian flare your outfit may be missing with FreshNeck’s 8 new Versace arrivals.  Featuring bold colors and patterns, and often the famed Medusa Head Logo, it is hard to mistake a Versace piece.

Shirt/Tie Combos – Part 2

In part 1 of this education series, we showed you some options for pairing ties with solid shirts. Here, we’re going to take things up just a notch, from solid shirts to another classic – the striped shirt. Again, we’ll be matching up FreshNeck ties with Alenford shirts.

Part 2 – Stripes

Pairing a striped shirt with your ties isn’t as hard as it may seem, but there are a few mistakes you’ll want to avoid.  First and foremost, you do NOT want to pair a striped shirt with a similarly sized striped tie. (Bruno would call it too matchy-matchy) If you do want to go the stripe-on-stripe way, make sure they vary in size (it’s always easier if the tie is the bolder stripe.)

The simplest, and often sleekest, combo is a striped shirt and a solid tie. Use a color that compliments the stripes, not a direct match.

The microstripe acts similar to a solid, so pair with a patterned tie that picks up on the stripe color (in this case, blue).

When using stripes-on-stripes, vary the size and textures. Here, the textured wool and diagonal stripes compliment the lighter colored vertical stripes on the shirt.

When using a bold stripe color (like this pink), compliment with a subtle solid (or close to it) tie. Always easier to use a darker tie.

A Gentleman’s Partnership

We like accessories.  Nay. We love accessories.  They can completely overhaul an outfit, bringing it from “nice” to “epic.”  However, like a quarterback surrounded with no weapons (NY Jets, anyone?), nice accessories can be wasted if the rest of the outfit is just blah.

So we’re here to get you the whole kit and caboodle (had to check our spelling on that one). We’ve mentioned before how custom suiting options have become much more affordable (“A Custom Suit For Everyone”). You may have noticed that our top pick, for both quality and customer service, was Michael Andrews Bespoke, located on Great Jones St. in NYC (with a 2nd location in Washington, DC). If you haven’t yet had the pleasure, this picture of the team sums up the ambiance.

We encourage you to stop by, have one of the lovely ladies pour you a single malt, and have one of their impeccably dressed salespersons help you navigate the world of style, fabric, and patterns.  We have previously worked with, and can give 100% approval rates to Alex and Casey. Now that fall is upon us, perhaps you’ll opt for a tweed blazer, or a made-for-you camel overcoat. As a bonus, we’re hooking every first-time suit purchaser with a free Platinum Membership to FreshNeck. See what that gets you here.
