There are two approaches to putting an outfit together: starting from the details and working your way up, or starting with the statement pieces (a suit or a favorite shirt) then working your way down to the details.
When a new tie, pocket square and pair of socks come to your front door once a month, you're going to be doing a lot more of the former. Gentleman's Box is a men's subscription box and is designed to enhance the modern man's already-dignified lifestyle by delivering essentials each and every month - and in packaging that will have you rushing to open it like a kid on Christmas morning. I've started a partnership with them to share with you guys what will be in their boxes every month and how you can style them to suit your life style.
What I love about this plaid tie is that it has the feel of your favorite flannel - a texture that can bring back memories from your first bonfire to whatever outdoor activities flannel has been with you through. The pocket square is nostalgic of summer with its color palette, and is also detailed with Italian influenced contrast lining.
Above you'll find inspiration on how to style this month's gentleman's box on a... colder day to say the least. Wool trousers and a warm topcoat can also be styled with a shirt and tie - its a fun (and warm) way to break out of the conventional 9 to 5 suit and tie look.
