    7. 7. 8 BLACK SUIT COMBINATION
    8. 8. 9 Black’s not very flexible. That’s why we generally recommend charcoal gray or navy blue in its place as a first suit. If you own one, pair it with black shoes, and save the outfit for funerals and strict business dress occasions. Any other color of shoe is going to look too casual with black. BLACK SUIT COMBINATION

    13. 13. 14 Black shoes are business dress, while brown are more relaxed, and red or burgundy give it the most playful, social feel. NAVY BLUE SUIT

    15. 15. 16 MEDIUM GREY SUIT
    16. 16. 17 MEDIUM GREY SUIT
    17. 17. 18 MEDIUM GREY POCKET SQUARE TIES
    18. 18. 19 Black is the best option when you’re wearing a white shirt and a necktie. It’s still not proper business dress (the suit itself is too light), but it’s quite typical in offices where suits are mandatory but somewhat relaxed. Brown and burgundy shoes make it more of a casual/social look, and work best when the shirt has a bit of pattern or color to it as well. MEDIUM GREY
    19. 19. 20 CHARCOAL GREY
    20. 20. 21 CHARCOAL GREY
    21. 21. 22 CHARCOAL GREY
    22. 22. 23 CHARCOAL GREY POCKET SQUARE TIES
    23. 23. 24 CHARCOAL GREY
    24. 24. 25 Dark browns look like you’re trying for a close match and coming up short. Light browns are too informal, and draw the eye jarringly downward. CHARCOAL GREY
    25. 25. 26 Sky Blue Shirts: Try darker patterned or textured ties in the same family. A knitted navy version or navy polka dot tie is ideal. Orange is a complementary colour and a burnt orange tie works particularly well with a sky blue shirt. Both yellow and red are contrasting hues, so ties in shades of burgundy/oxblood or mustard/gold look great set against this shirt colour. These could be solid ties or mixed with navy (think club stripes). Green is a similar colour to blue – try a dark forest green tie if you want to make a refined and effortless statement. Pale Pink Shirts: Similar colours include mauve and purple. Opt for any of these in a nice deep shade and you can’t go wrong. Green is complementary, and a matte khaki shade is a bold choice that will really separate your look from the crowd. Blue is a contrasting colour and we would argue that nothing looks better than a pink shirt with a predominantly navy tie, whether solid or patterned. Plain Shirts : white shirts offer you maximum versatility. No matter if you opt for a preppy stripe, tartan check or knitted navy version, you can combine almost any tie with a white shirt. If you are going down the safe white shirt route, make sure your tie is full of character – whether that is provided by pattern, colour or an interesting texture. GUIDELINES ON HOW TO CHOOSE TIES
    26. 26. Urbanista – Corporate Profile 27 Block-colour ties are the obvious go-to – whether in similar, contrasting or complementary shades – but when you want to branch out into pattern mixing there is just one key rule to remember: always vary the size/scale of the patterns you combine. Stripes also work perfectly well with other stripes, again, so long as they aren’t the same size. For instance, why not try a thin pencil stripe shirt with a larger club stripe tie? Pick out the colour of the pencil stripe with one of the colours on your tie and it suddenly helps pull your entire look together – showing you are a man that pays attention to detail. Another great tip here is to simply vary the orientation of the stripes you combine. For instance, a vertical striped shirt can be paired with a horizontal or diagonal striped tie. This offers a clear contrast and helps to differentiate each piece. Otherwise, polka dots, paisley and geometric designs are all fair game. It all comes down to personal preference, so try out different pattern combinations and see what encapsulates your personality and approach to style best. TIE WITH STRIPED SHIRT
    27. 27. 28 If you opt for larger tartan/plaid versions, the key is to pick out one of the more subtle base tones in your shirt with a solid, block- colour tie. Just remember to keep the shade darker than the colour present in the shirt itself. Stripes are perfectly acceptable to combine with check shirts. Choose a tie with a big bold stripe so that it can easily compete with the pattern on the shirt and, again, make sure that one of the colours present in the stripes is the same as one of the secondary hues used on the shirt. Polka dots can also work well if you follow the same principles. Avoid more intricate patterns such as paisley or geometrics as they are likely to create an optical illusion for anyone taking a cursory look at your unfortunate shirt and tie combination TIE WITH CHECKED SHIRT
    28. 28. 29  When it comes to a pocket square , there is only 1 important rule :“your pocket square should not exactly match your tie”  Pocket square , if worn with a tie , can either compliment your shirt or tie. It could perhaps pick out a color from the tie itself.  Wearing a pocket square without a tie is even easier.  Square fold : works best with linen or cotton pocket squares. This is great for business situations where a more conservative style is suited. It works very well in black tie situations also.  The puff : is best suited to silk or woolen pocket squares. It can be conservative or flamboyant depending upon the pocket square fold. POCKET SQUARE
