Q&A: How to Match Your Shirt and Tie

May 30th, 2007

Q:  How do you match a tie to a shirt?

Sovereign Beck Beetles TieOmiru 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!

Want to learn how to match a patterned shirt with a patterned tie?  Omiru shows you how to mix and match patterns.
