10 Essential Ties

March 12th, 2014

Here it is, everyone! The video that newsletter subscribers have been hearing me talk about for the past two weeks. As you already know, a tie is one of the most essential accessories for the well-dressed man. But if you’re just getting started with your menswear collection, where do you begin? What are the 10 ties that every guy should have? I wanted to put together a video sharing 10 ties that I consider must haves.

Several of the looks in the video have been featured on the blog (and a few will be published in the coming weeks). Here’s a list of those that currently have companion posts. Click for more as well as full outfit details:

LOOK 1 – Striped Navy Tie
LOOK 2 – Power Tie
LOOK 4 – Patterned Tie
LOOK 7 – Wool Tie
LOOK 10 – Black Bow Tie

This video is the kind of content I’d like to create for you on a more regular basis. I’ve been looking for ways to bring together (and bring to life) much of the style editorial published on the blog. In particular, a medium to deliver 1 Piece/Multiple Ways content that I’ve typically spread out anywhere between three and seven individual posts.

So what do you think? Did you like the video? Would you like to see more like this? Are there other kinds of videos—tutorials, for example—you’d like to see on the blog and YouTube channel? Leave your ideas and suggestions in the comments. This video was actually the result of a reader request.

Thanks, as always, for reading.
