Yes me, the dapper gentleman in the corner. Solid blue ties seem idly boring on a tie rack, but their ability to inject conservative chic into an outfit makes them a safe classic that has stood the test of time. Solid navy ties for patterned suits or shirt, patterned navy ties for solid suits or shirts; I know it sounds easy, that’s because it is. You are probably factoring other elements like what color should your shirt be etc into the equation, but that’s the sweet spot for the navy tie, it works with almost anything. Its lunch time and this post just made me sound awfully preachy, now I feel terrible enough to stuff that red velvet cheesecake down my throat…and maybe later go shopping another blue number, wink.
