I really like their knit ties, you can’t wear them with everything, but if worn properly they can go with a variety of looks:
1. Basic button-up and chinos.
2. Collar shirt, vest, and khakis or jeans.
3. Fitted/Athletic suit or blazer and trouser combo.
4. etc… you get the picture, they can pretty much go with anything that has a preppier/ralph lauren/benjamin bixby/j.crew look. But they don’t go well with formal looks and materials (like silk).
In the light you can clearly see the different color blacks that each guy has on. It’s important to try to match your blacks if possible. Usually it’s hard to tell the difference, but sometimes it’s quite obvious.
Tyrese opted for an ascot and velvet jacket- it’s okay, but he should have worn a bow-tie:-)
From John Legend to Scott Whitman to Jay-Z. It seems like velvet or velour bow-ties are the way to go. There’s only so much you can do with a tux, so it’s nice when gentleman find ways to make their tuxedo special. If you have any black tie events coming up, you should try wearing a velvet bow-tie.
