Easy Go-To Color Combinations

You work so hard all week, why not make things easy on yourself in the mornings?  I suggest if you don’t already have one, invest in a nice gray suit. There are so many shades of gray but let’s decide first what look you are going for.

The first easy color combination is gray and white. For a more modern and youthful look go with lighter to medium shades of gray. Why not lose the tie and unbutton the collar on a luxury Italian custom dress shirt for a change? Gray and white works with any skin and hair coloring.

For a more classic or traditional appeal aim for a darker charcoal gray.  A longer collar point length works well the boardroom.

For a date night, choose a shorter collar point and a skinnier tie. Tip: The leaner the tie, the leaner you appear.

The second easy color combo is gray and blue.

For a younger and trendier feel, again go with the lighter shades of blue and gray.

Go for darker shades of blue and navy for a classy and dressier look.

Monogrammed Custom Dress Shirts

 

Monogrammed custom dress shirts are back. Some things to keep in mind if you are ready to take the monogram plunge.

1. Stay subtle. Don’t try to be trendy and monogram something like G6 on your sleeve. Go with your own initials, please.

2. Keep it masculine. Order your monogram with the initials in order of your name. The larger middle initial as the last name initial is for the ladies.

3. Don’t double up. If you are wearing monogrammed cufflinks, steer clear of the monogrammed cuff.

Cufflinks, collar stays and money clips can be monogrammed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Try something unexpected.
