I’ll be honest, I don’t really wear ties that much. It’s not part of my lifestyle. I’m a little bit jealous of the guys who do get to wear ties – not for the sake of wearing a tie itself, but for the fun of the morning ritual of putting together a shirt/tie/suit combination.
However, I keep seing super chic gentlemen bypassing the tie for the more relaxed and modern scarf/bandana. As you can see in both of these pictures, it elevates a classic, understated look by adding just the right amount of color and pattern.
Who said understated menswear had to be boring?
