Mixing color and pattern can often prove to be a more difficult task than expected when pairing neckties and shirts. For help, we turned to Juliana who styles all of our lookbook and studio shoots to highlight one necktie, The Maroon Abott Tie, and pair it with three shirts from our core collection – a pattern, a stripe, and a solid. This is what Juliana put together as well as passing along a few pointers for styling. <1> The Navy Cross Gingham The gingham check creates a natural grid for the geometric shapes of the necktie to fall nicely into. The navy gingham of the shirt also brings out the shade of light blue in the necktie. <2> The Red Henley Stripe Twill The vertical stripes of the shirt paired with the geometric shapes in the necktie create a strong compliment. Also, staying within tonal color families – the red of the shirt, and maroon of the necktie – is always a good idea. <3> The Blue Fine Twill It is smart to keep your closet stocked with a few basics and the Blue Fine Twill fits the bill. This combination is a winner because the maroon stands out against the blue of the shirt and the light blue geometric shapes in the necktie easily brings the pairing full circle. The Maroon Abott Tie is constructed from 100% silk and woven in Como, Italy. Shop this, as well as all of our neckties here.
