    • Patterned ties work with striped shirts
    • Stripped ties work with striped shirts (but make sure the tie has bolder stripes)

    2. a small knot is the only thing to use on button down shirts such as oxfords this works stand alone or with a blazer or sport coat.

    NEVER put a small knot with a suit, especially with cuff links. AND STAY AWAY FROM TIE BARS!!!!!!!!!

    Remember the better the dress the wider the knot.

    Depending on your body type and size, you may need an "extra long" tie for the Windsor knot, since it requires more of the tie to be in the knot. Once your tie is tied, then the tip should touch the belt buckle. Not longer and not shorter...

    Windsor all the way, sometimes even a double windsor for my cutaways. I also do a full windsor for my skinny ties because i hate the four in hand.

    Wearing a button down collar shirt with a tie is like wearing a suit with white socks.

    Tie bars are optional imo. I would very rarely put on a tie bar to make my tie sit a little nicer.

    Another thing about ties... I NEVER EVER do printed ties. Woven ties are the way to go these days.

    Don't know what kind of striped shirts you have, but for my shirts with crazy and colorful shirts, I usually go with a solid, dotted ties, or something with a simple yet elegant design.

    With ties, you are trying to match primary and secondary color with one another. For instance if you're wearing a a blue shirt with black slacks, then get something that incorperates both colors.

    If you do a print like paisley, it is basically a neutral and you can wear it with different hues of the same color. For instance, a light blue tie with a darker shirt.

    "Striped Shirts
    Looking for a bit of challenge? Try a striped shirt.
    Is a striped shirt hard to match? - No

    Lets look at some quick examples:

    First, look at the shirt from a distance and decide on what color you primarily see. Based on this color, add a coordinating color tie. However, be careful, the best coordinated look for a striped shirt needs to be in the pattern AND color. For example, if you see mostly navy blue stripes, add a yellow tie with a box pattern or a pin dot or polka dot patter. Today, you can even add a beautiful paisley pattern.

    What did we just do? - Well, we took the stripes and set them off with boxes, paisley or dots. By doing this, we broke up the stripes on the shirt and introduced a breaking point which is a dissimilar pattern.

    If you want you can even use diagonal stripes, just make sure that the stripes of the shirt and the stripes of the tie are two different sizes. Generally by two different sizes we mean at least a 2:1 ratio. If the stripes on the shirt are 1/4 inches, go with a tie that has stripes at least 1/2 inch. This will help the tie stand out rather than become a blur with the shirt.

    Ties

    I need help picking out ties. I have a ton of dress shirts but only a couple ties and I have no idea how to match ties, especially with my striped shirts. Does anybody have any links or have any good tips on picking out ties?
