You want your tie to match your shirt. This first rule is to have your ties arranged in such a manner that you can hold them against your shirts. Get a tie rack—a good tie rack that doesn’t wrinkle your ties. A tie rack you can remove from the closet and carry to a well lit area. In this manner you will be able to make sure the clothes match properly.
Now be sure to match your tie to your clothing, not your clothing to your tie.
You need to determine the right color for the message you are trying to signal and the color combination that works best. A bright orange shirt and tie might be good for some events. Red isn’t the best possible choice for a board meeting. But these two selections do show that matching a tie to a shirt makes an outfit flattering.
Royal blues with a kerchief is a good combination for weddings and other formal events.
If you want patterned shirts make sure you match them with tie patterns that are not exactly the same size. Wear a slim striped shirt with a thicker diagonal striped tie. Don’t choose two patterns of the same size. If you have a checker shirt find the pronounced color in your checkered shirt and find a tie with that color. Remember, matching the tie to the shirt is so much easier if you have all the ties in one place on a rack. Order the Necktie Butler to help in your decision.
