For those of you who have been following me for a while know that my standard approach to getting dressed is picking one item and building an outfit around that.
In this case it was the tie, I’m a sucker for new things, and having just received a package from the gents at Weekend Casual stuffed with accessories as well as having come back from a major shopping trip in Johannesburg…so I wanted to just wear ALL THE new things!
I love me a tartan tie, its very versatile as you generally have 3 or 4 colours in the tie to match to different parts of your outfit, in this case I let the neutral colours in the tie form the base and built the major items around that with a neutral jacket and trousers.
I took a chance with the pocket square and lapel flower, technically they shouldn’t have worked, the pocket square was a little busy, and the flowers colour ever so slightly off, but in the end it was the confidence that pulled it off. Ive always said, you can wear anything if you wear it confidently right? Maybe it was confidence combined with the fact that the colours actually all worked together…but who can be sure.
Lets take a look at the details.
