The Custom Handbook- Ties

The Custom Handbook- Ties 1 – Henry A. Davidsen

You already own the precise fitting suit and the precise fitting shirt, but do you own the precise tie? Odds are, as a well-dressed gent, you own a closet full of ties. However, we bet you don’t know all of the ways you can custom create your look when it comes to neckwear. Whether you’re looking to stand out, add new interest into your style, or you’re just a man who enjoys the finer things in life, the new Philadelphia custom tie trend will take your suit game to the next level.

This season is bringing a whole new level to mainstream menswear, custom. No longer just for the high rollers and CEOS, men are incorporating more custom into the bulk of their wardrobes. Realizing all the options at their fingertips, the longevity of a well-made product, and the visual appeal and fit of a custom piece, it’s no wonder custom is now the standard in menswear.

An article published by Scientific American stated, “If you want to be a big-ideas person at work, suit up. A paper in August 2015 in Social Psychological and Personality Science asked subjects to change into formal or casual clothing before cognitive tests. Wearing formal business attire increased abstract thinking—an important aspect of creativity and long-term strategizing. The experiments suggest the effect is related to feelings of power.”

Now, you can’t just put on any suit and feel powerful. We all know when our clothing fits incorrectly we can feel it. So, if dressing in formal proper fitting pieces is related to the feeling of power, imagine how powerful and confident you will feel knowing your entire outfit is custom created for you. Which means not just your suit, but your shirt and tie as well.

You wouldn’t put a Honda engine in a Rolls Royce, would you? No, you wouldn’t. When you know the value of your outfit and the work that is done to create your wardrobe, you don’t want to accessorize with anything less than the best.

Why go custom? Simple, it’s made just for you. Why wear the same off the rack tie as the other guy in the office? The accessories you choose to style your outfit speak to your personality and will help you get your message across. It’s no secret others judge us off what we wear, having a custom tie to finish off your look will add a level of confidence that people will notice and remember. You won’t look like just be another guy in the office, we promise.
