Loud mouth neckwear? What does that even mean? I clearly have run out ideas for what to call my posts. I’ve been on a slight neckwear binge as of late, so I hope you’ll indulge me. This actually works great because I was chatting with a friend the other day about style options and how to set yourself apart without going to crazy. It turns out my friend was a little heavier than me, with a wider shoulder build, so it lead to an interesting question. Along with trying to find large men’s clothing, what are some other work-arounds to retain that stylishly polished look?
I’ve always maintained that ties are an awesome way to draw some positive attention. They allow you to keep it fun and fresh, be unique, and do it all within the realm of professionalism. I know not everyone works in a casual workplace, but there are ways to dress up a casual, energetic tie. I definitely wouldn’t rock the suit below to work, but I would put on a crazy bowtie with a cardigan and layer a suit over it to bring out a fun but relatively classic ensemble. Don’t be afraid of the craziness. The idea is to tame it, not avoid it.
I always kick myself when I forget things…and I forget things a lot, so I guess I’m bruising up my leg. My point being, I forget who makes these ties. I can’t find any of the business cards I’ve collected since seeing them at (capsule). However, I do know they have truly impressed me. Fabric is the name of the game, and finding the right stuff to put together some intense ties is the secret to the magic. Of course, until men start getting truly comfortable stepping outside of the box, this magic will always take a backseat to the more commercial approach to neckwear. But I’m relieved there are designers out there who could care less. And I guess the beauty of the tie is that it’s relatively inexpensive to produce relative to a full collection. I’m rambling again. That’s enough for now, but I will continue my crusade to turn menswear into a truly expressive, no holds barred arena for style!
