Every guy dreams of finding the perfectly shaped tie, but few live to see that fantasy become a reality. Skinny ties are awesome but often too narrow and flimsy to be taken seriously, while some regular-width ties cover enough chest to put lobster bibs out of business. Thankfully, we found a happy medium. Skinny Tie Madness is pumping out not only one of the best-shaped ties around - boasting a classic pointed bottom and perfectly tapered width that's slim yet structured - but also a mouthwatering array of colors and fabrics, from simple monotones to textural patterns. For this look I chose their ultra-versatile chambray tie, otherwise known as 'Vodka Breath,' whose striped pattern and neutral color goes with everything from a slim-cut suit to today's dressed up workwear, keeping things clean and classy, no matter the territory.
Always exploring the boundaries of business casual, I decided to pair my tie with a denim shirt, jeans and desert boots for some workwear comfort, while throwing my favorite brown utility bomber over the top. Small details like the silver-plated belt buckle and black chronograph work in unison with the tie, subtly letting the world know that, despite the laid-back appearance, I mean business.
