Q: How do you match a tie to a shirt?
Omiru is pleased to bring you the answer to this style question from Ryan Sovereign, one half of the design duo behind the quietly provocative neckwear line Sovereign Beck.
A: Generally, a tie should either totally match the shirt, like when you buy those tie/shirt combo’s at Kmart, or it shouldn’t match at all. I most often go with light pink, light blue or white…the safe route. My design partner, Will, is a bit more risqué with his tie/shirt combos. Truthfully, though, I really can’t lay down any hard and fast rules, since it all depends on what the wearer is capable of pulling off. And if you can match a patterned shirt with a patterned tie, you’re doing something right!
