The Tie Edition : All you Need to Know and More

Posted by on

According to Wikipedia, a necktie, or simply a tie, is a long piece of cloth, worn usually by men, for decorative purposes around the neck, resting under the shirt collar and knotted at the throat.

We know that not all men are alike and your choice of colours and styles differ. It may seem like a small thing, but a tie does wonders to a man's wardrobe - be it for the office or an evening affair. This small piece of fabric adds texture and character to one's outfit and completes your whole look.

Since we're such big fans of the hit US television show Suits and we're really looking forward to Season 7 Part B starting on the 28th of March, we thought it would be a great idea to show you the different characters and (what we think would be) their tie preferences. Read on, you'll be surprised to find out you're probably one or the other.

1. The Prince Charming - Mike Ross

He is the youngest male member of the team.  Coming from a tainted past doesn't deter him from getting what he wants.  Armed with intelligence and a quick wit, he charms his way through any case and the woman of his dreams (in this case it's Rachel Zane, played by actress and soon-to-be royalty, Meghan Markle).  Mike Ross is your average young male with an edgier look. He opts for skinny and standard ties in rich patterns and colours such as blood red and navy stripes.

2. The Big Shot - Harvey Specter

He's extremely confident and as well as extremely successful. Harvey Specter has won almost all his cases- he knows he's one of the best lawyers around.  A go-getter and knows what he wants.  He dresses impeccably and his taste veers towards the classics- which is evident in his love for vinyls and vintage cars. He's a black-tie kind of guy but he looks equally dashing in a classic striped piece.

3. The Urban Male - Louis Litt

He defies the typical male stereotype simply because he's in touch with his emotional side.  He's equally passionate about law as he is about a Shakespeare play or perhaps beautiful architecture.  He’s not the norm which is a refreshing reminder to the younger generation not to conform and work hard at being good at whatever you want to be.  Louis is more of a standard tie user, but he looks great wearing purple or pastels as well as bold prints and patternsLouis Litt

So do tell, which Suits character are you?  You'll be glad to know we've got you covered now matter what.

Tie Tips

If you ask around for tie tips and you'll get a ton of information on it.  We’re giving you only the most important pointers to get you on your way to "tie perfection".

  • Four-in-hand Knot - If there is a knot that you must remember, it should be this. Oh and you must embrace the tie-dimple.  Don't know what that is? Well, the good folks at GQ show us how it's done.

  • Length Matters - stylists say that the tip of your tie must hit below the belt line to give you that classic, polished look.
  • Black Tie - Always have a black tie handy. No matter what the occasion, it's always a YES in our books. Shop black ties here.
  • Tie Clips - Remember one rule of thumb : it goes between the third and fourth buttons of your dress shirt. And it must be fastened to the placket of your shirt. We offer a wide range of tie clips for you to choose from here

Now that you know all these, take a look at your wardrobe and determine what colours complement it and your personality.  Now's the best time to build up your tie collection because we're giving you 15% OFF every purchase of 2 neckties or bow ties this month of March just use code TIE15 upon checkout.  Click here to shop TIES.

5 Romantic Destinations For A Valentine's Vacation

Posted by on

Running out of ideas on how to spend Valentine's day this year? Here are the 5 most romantic destinations we've picked that are perfect for that special getaway.

Now that we've settled on the venue, here comes the important part - the dress code.

Stumped over what to wear? Here's a simple style guide to help you pack (you’re welcome). 

1. VENICE, ITALY

A palazzi of infinite pastel shades reflected in quiet canals, and the soft splash of a gondola plying a watery backstreet: there's really no competition. For romance, Venice is the perfect backdrop.

Valentine's Day in Venice

STYLE TIPS

In these less formal moments, aim for a perfect balanced silhouette with a crisp white shirt and cropped black pants. Add a hint of flamboyance with standout accessories, this look takes you seamlessly from exploration during the day time to a night at the bar.

2. MALDIVES

Stunning white-sand beaches, turquoise lagoons, unparalleled snorkeling, gorgeous rustic-chic villas over the water or on the sand, and fine dining. What's not to like? 

Valentine's Day in Maldives

STYLE TIPS

Who says you can't dress up for a beach vacation? Opt for a smart casual outfit during a romantic candlelight dinner at that famous restaurant under the sea. Tempting as it is because of the warm weather, flip flops are an absolute no go for your special dinner.

3. NEW YORK

New York certainly doesn't lack gorgeous places to wine and dine. But what's really romantic is NYC's really beautiful, simple treasures. From the classic attractions, like the view from the Empire State Building, to lesser-known delights such as the Butterfly Conservatory at the American Museum of Natural History, we're sure it'll set your heart aflutter.

Valentine's Day in New York City

STYLE TIPS

Dress like a New Yorker with clean lines and a slim cut silhouette. Layering is essential, especially during the winter or early spring where temperatures can be sub-zero. Add final touches of sharp and sleek accessories to complete the look.

4. SANTORINI, GREECE

Greece and romance may as well be synonymous. Whether you are looking for an ideal honeymoon destination or just a romantic escape, the beauty and diversity of the Greek landscape forms the most romantic backdrop to celebrate your love.

Valentine's Day in Santorini, Greece

STYLE TIPS

Santorini is extremely stylish, but don’t go bling, think elegant and sophisticated. Bold bright colours look stunning against the white-washed surfaces.  Crisp white shirts, and tailored pants are de rigueur. The people here have an eye for fashion, the key is to look like you’ve just stepped off your million pound yacht.

Valentine's Day Men's Style Guide - Greece

Shop (clockwise): Brown and Green Lapel Rose Boutonniere, White Howlite Bead Bracelet, Devil's Fruit Cufflinks Silver, Omi Wine Red Pocket Square, Wood Four Leaf Clover Cufflinks

Valentine's Day in Iceland

STYLE TIPS

Iceland is the new place to be, with its thriving city of Reykjavik, it’s fast becoming a bustling city where culture and style come together to the sound of Björk. Make sure you have all the essentials to make this holiday the best ever.

5 New Year Resolution Ideas And How To Achieve Them

Posted by on

The New Year is nearing, and with the holiday season already upon us, here's your chance to sit down and prepare a list of important lifestyle changes you want to make for 2018.

We’ve decided to give you a bit of help to kick start your New Year resolutions – because since the majority of people fail to stick to them, you’ll need all the help you can get.

1. GET ORGANIZED

A cluttered desk or a chaotic home will negatively affect your productivity and even your mood. Time to clear your clutter, organize your knick knacks and make it a habit.

Here are the best tools to whip things into place:

Get Organized with cufflink storage boxes and moleskine notebooks

Shop: 1. Leather Cufflinks Display Case (20 Pair), 2. Classic Black Moleskine Notebook, 3. Day to Night Cufflink and Tie Clip Combo  

2. START BEING MORE CREATIVE

There are times when we get mentally fatigued and our creativity goes out the window. This is particularly bad if your job or hobby depends on you coming up with fresh ideas and thinking outside the box. As with everything else, there are many different ways to re-ignite your creativity.

One way is to experiment with your style of dressing and creative accessorising:

Be More Creative with Your Dressing

Shop: 1. Jonah Bow Tie, 2. Pianist Cufflinks, 3. White Crayon Cufflinks, Shinto Gothic Steampunk Sunglasses Silver 

3. MEET NEW PEOPLE

When we get stuck in a rut, we usually end up staying at home most of the time, missing out on a lot of interesting opportunities for networking and having fun. Meeting new people can be beneficial to your mental well-being and help your career, so don’t be afraid to get out there and make some friends. Overcome your shyness, embrace new perspectives and get to know new and interesting people.

Nail those first impressions and get those contacts with these essentials:

Socialise and network with the right cufflinks and accessories

Shop: 1. Echo Pocket Square, 2. Bellroy Card Sleeve Blue Steel 3. Mechanical Gear Cufflinks Olga, 4. Gold Feather Collar Pin

4. TRAVEL MORE

You’ll need to have your finances in order before you consider traveling across the globe, but there are ways of experiencing different cultures and visiting faraway places even on a tight budget. For instance seeking out short trips to uncommon destinations nearby may just do the trick.

Here's how to travel in style no matter which part of the world you are in.

Shop: 1. Stift Custom Engraveable Pen Sapphire Blue, 2. Wachterlein Custom Engraveable RFID Blocking Leather Wallet, 3. Tropics Cufflinks, 4. Fighter Jet Cufflinks

5. BE MORE ROMANTIC

Romance is often the first casualty in longer, more serious relationships, but it doesn’t have to wither away. A few romantic gestures here and there can keep the passion going for decades. It will be fun, even if you’re not the romantic type.

Start by impressing her with your new found dress sense and a dozen roses:

Impress your date with the right cufflinks and accessories

Shop: 1. Beige Lapel Rose, 2. Sodalite Beaded Bracelet by Blue Pendulum, 3. Peter Custom Engraved Cufflinks, Custom Engraved Silver Collar Stays

 

A New Year is like a blank notebook. You get to write anything you want in it. Fill the first page of your notebook with your New Year’s resolutions and make 2018 the best year ever.
