How to match a Tie to your suit.

It's a common question and a tricky thing for customers to work out. What Tie goes with this suit? Chances are you don't wear a Suit and Tie very often. So we are here to help you with that. 

This is a quick guide to help you match a tie to your suit.

A tie is the final touch to your outfit. You can be confident in your style and look great if you get it right, but make sure there are no colour clashes or other problems with the way it looks on you. It's also important to make sure that the cut of your suit fits you well—you don't want something which makes your shoulders look wide, even if they're not!

Printed ties: pick the base colour of your tie, and match your suit colour to that.

When you’re working with prints, it’s important to keep all the colours in mind. In this case, the key is choosing your tie based on the base colour of your suit.

Ties work best when they contrast with their suit but also complement them—so if you have an orange or brown-coloured suit with a blue tie, that combination will look great! If you want to play it safe and keep things simple, stick with matching your tie base colour with the main colour of your suit. For example: a Black suit can be paired with a black Tie. A classic navy blazer would work well with a navy or even burgundy Tie.

If you head to our Tie page you will see we have photographed each Tie with our favourite Jacket colour. This gives you one idea of what you could match a Tie to your suit.
