Q&A: What Tie to Wear with a Black Shirt

August 29th, 2007

Q:  I have a black suit and also a black shirt. Is there tie colour that would go with this combination?

Black on black makes quite a statement. You can create (at least) three different looks with this style. For a look that’s…

1. Jazzy and zoot suit inspired, try Thomas Pink’s spotted knit tie.

2. Sophisticated and urban, try Thomas Pink’s art deco inspired tie.

3. Artsy and unconventional, try TieLab’s Poppies tie. Dramatically graphic.

    white ties r clasic especially now skinny white ties however if it’s for work,or formal events like going to court, white may look a bit gangsterish ( or so my brief told me!) so try silver, grey or even black
