5-TIE SURVIVAL KIT

5-TIE SURVIVAL KIT

There’s a reason why Essentials are called so. These are the staples which form the foundation of any wardrobe. A Tie is an understated wardrobe element which catalyzes a suave reaction. Now given a chance to shelf 5 neck-ties for your wardrobe war, Pezalli lists down the 5 most effective of the arsenal.

P.S. If you wish to find Trump wearing a blinding-red tie and making it to the list…stop reading!

 

  1. Navy silk grenadine

A plain navy tie is extremely versatile, going with almost all colors and patterns of shirts and jackets.

Grenadine is the most versatile tie material in terms of formality, going with all but the smartest suits and all but the most casual knitwear.

  1. Grey knitted wool

Grey is not quite as versatile as navy. While navy ties go with navy suits, grey ties often aren’t the best choice with grey suits.

Still, grey is very useful, and a square-ended knitted wool tie will go with casual jackets and dress up some quality knitwear.

  1. Navy club stripe

The nice thing about a club stripe is that it is big enough to go with any pattern of shirt, from a micro-stripe to a butcher’s stripe.

As a general rule of thumb, patterns in ties, shirts and suits work when they are not too close in size to each other. A club-stripe tie always avoids that problem.

  1. Red Paisley

The pattern is so useful, I would include two in the capsule collection. Well, a paisley scores well on occasions where fancy counts. This one usually helps during pimping up your dull-navy or black suits. And as we say, nice simple pattern that goes with everything.

  1. Olive printed tie with black geometrical pattern

It’s not an obvious choice: a green background, with small texture or polkas popping out. Fairly unusual colors; yet it is extremely useful.

The reason is how muted these colors incredibly well blend. For uncalled invitations where you’ll not be perceived as ‘Just another tie guy in the room.’

PEZALLI STYLE COMMANDMENTS

dsc_0778

It’s been quite a while since we have documented our fanatics for tailored clothing. Bespoke is as subtle and debonair as it sounds. An experience to the world of impeccability and savoring the refined taste need absolute patience and trust.

Here, we chalk down the philosophies we abide by at Pezalli while we constantly practice the skill of perfection: Bespoke Tailoring.  

 

  •  We are passionate about quality, just like an obstinate child sitting in front of a toy shop. Everyone should invest more in quality clothing. It’s the only reason to care about craft and artisanal skills.

  • Fit is the most important thing in tailored clothing. If you can’t afford a bespoke suit or shirt, at least spend a little more to get it altered. But the tailoring aficionados find it always better to go bespoke rather than shelling out a bomb and then trying to fit in.”

  • It is the attention to detail and the joy of aesthetics that forms the emotional dimension of bespoke pieces. Impeccably tailored and elegantly styled clothes can make that lasting impression about one’s personality.

  • Always travel with a white poplin (or oxford) shirt and navy smart-fit trousers.

  • Rely on your own judgment for clothing. Until a certified style coach is detoxing your closet, you needn’t listen to every chunk of the people around. Fight for your favorites but don’t get buried too deep with your limited knowledge. If a powder blue is replaced by a navy, don’t sulk over it.

  • “Style is relative. It’s hard to admit, but it’s true. If everyone you know dressed just like you, you’d want to dress differently.”

STYLING TIPS FOR CUSTOM WARDROBE

A well styled wardrobe can make or break your impression in the world; therefore a well styled and groomed man definitely attracts everyone. Men’s styling is mostly given lesser importance leaving the guys around with little knowledge about fashion, trends, what suits them and what not, what best style and cuts they can carry with their body type, etc. To break all these barriers, we bring bespoke clothing that focuses on customization, fit and colour coordination of men’s clothing.  At Pezalli, we work with customers to analyse many factors, from personality, colour suitability to body type analysis.

Let’s start with first things first. A simple shirt can be a work of art defining who you are and a bespoke shirt becomes the measure of a man, because it is cut to his exact measurements and perfected through several fittings. A bespoke shirt includes expert style consultations, advising in the choice of design details, fabrics and colours that best suit each individual’s physique, skin tone and lifestyle.

Let’s begin with the most staple element of a man’s wardrobe: A blue shirt. A plain blue shirt can work wonders if paired correctly depending upon the right colour coding. Choose the right blue that suits your skin tone. Muted skin men would go well with powder blue, while the darker complexions don pop colours like medium blue. Pair it up with brown pants for the contrasting look, or with grey trousers if you want some neutral balance or put on a navy trouser for the monochromatic scheme. A greyish-blue shirt with charcoal grey trousers or a light blue shirt with khaki trousers can be listed as safe experiments. Or else go for the traditional strong contrast of ‘white shirt-midnight blue trousers’ for the dapper look.

Not all custom wardrobes hold dynamism. Sophistication comes with the Neutral colour family. Dress in shades of Black, white, grey or beige. A light blue shirt when paired with a neutral coloured trouser makes it a perfect set up for the impeccable and stunning look.

For taller men, contrasting the top and bottom of the attire should come as a priority for the proportionate look. Go for a darker shade of blue and light coloured trousers that horizontally creates a line for colour breaking. Shorter and heavier men should go for the Matching technique. Simply match the colour and intensity of your blue ensemble to give yourself a thinner and taller look.

Matching and Contrasting are the principal guides to the ‘Correct Colour Coding.’ Pair up a dark blue tie with a pale blue shirt or a greyish-blue suit for that perfect colour harmony. Simple, elegant yet classic. Substitute a red or maroon tie in this getup, and you have a fairly decent colour contrast.

While we choose ‘the Blue’ as our top pick, we can’t ignore the strong contrasting elements such as navy suit and white shirt. Nor can we deny the classic black and white formal wear which never fails to complement all the skin tones and physiques.

Summers tend to be hard on everyone, therefore choose a fabric that is light. 100% cottons and linens work the best. Pastels of blue and yellow undoubtedly remain the colours of the season. And for all those formal occasions, a standard double breasted dark blue blazer and a two button are our favourites.
