Being a Squire Man isn’t only about the ensemble, and finding the right clothing and guidance is often easier said than done. Here are a few steps to pulling off the “tieless” look.
Sophistication. Distinction. Confidence. Elegance. These are qualities that a “Squire Man” possesses and most other men strive to achieve. Being a Squire Man isn’t only about the ensemble, and finding the right clothing and guidance is often easier said than done. An average joe looking to emulate a Squire Man will have quite a bit of work to do, but we have some tips to get you started. Here are a few steps to pulling off the “tieless” look.
- 1. The Suit Makes The Man.
You want to avoid the, “I just took off my tie because it’s a wedding and I am about to step out on the dance floor” look. Wearing a perfectly tailored suit is the only option; a solid suit, light gray, navy or khaki in the summer. Small, subtle and hardly noticeable patterns on the suit are preferable, if at all. Slimmer notch lapels and two button styling with a medium or lower button stance also helps.
2. Collars, Shoes and Accessories.
Without the tie you have the ability to add new things to enhance the visual space. Go with a shirt with a sharp collar, which will frame the face and is going to get close to vertical. A really well-made collar stay will help. Make a bold fashion statement by unbuttoning the second button on the shirt. With the footwear get a little riskier to compliment the appearance. Try going sockless with a slip on black shoe or perhaps wearing suede. Add a pocket square to the suit jacket. Even wear a watch that has a little flash.
3. Shirt Choices.
Worried about looking to minimalist? Solid shirts compliment the tieless look. Wearing a shirt with a slight pattern can help the outfit. Contrasting undershirts can also add a little flair here; black undershirt with a grey suit or conversely a grey undershirt with a navy suit helps pull off the tieless ensemble.
4. Get The Right Fit.
This should be a little more obvious to those who are familiar with the sartorial arts, but without wearing a tie, everything else is on display and should look the part. Correct sleeve length, showing some cuff, and shaping on the shoulders to the back. Complete trousers.
5. When In Doubt, Wear A Tie
Given an option, it is always better to be overdressed than underdressed. As a modern, dapper individual must know when to go tieless and when it is inappropriate. Interviewing for a new job at a well-dressed workplace, going tieless can make you seem arrogant. Be aware of the event and when going tieless is acceptable.
A tie looks great on everyone; it takes someone who is educated in the fine arts of luxury and high style to really go tieless.
