A brief article about how to style and wear accessories.
THE TIE: TIMELESS ICON OF ELEGANCE
Ties are timeless, even if nowadays they're often kept inside the wardrobe due to the “sneakerization” that is affecting us all.
Ties are also a symbol of elegance, power, and success, but we Italians prefer to wear them with some nonchalance, so to make the overall outfit look more relaxed.
Whether you pick a tie for a formal or informal occasion, make sure the end of it doesn’t surpass your belt’s buckle.
THE BRACES: A CLASSIC YET MODERN LOOK
A lot of Gentlemen from all over the world sustain that (like the classic etiquette states) braces should never be viewed from under the jacket. Despite everything, Italians always love their braces to be visible if someone would like to take a peek at them, otherwise, why are we all buying so beautiful garments if no one is going to see them?
Depending on how Dandy you want to be, you can match them to the rest of the outfit or choose something that stands out completely.
One last secret: we adore silk ones.
THE HANDKERCHIEF: THE CHERRY ON TOP
Handkerchiefs can make or break your look.
They’re definitely the simplest accessory to buy and to gift, but they’re also merciless. A true Gentleman is always able to match his pochette (as we Italians often call it) with the rest of his outfit without having it identical to his tie or his braces (which, sincerely, should be avoided completely).
Silk handkerchiefs can be used as a pocket embellishment as well as tied around the neck.
