The Red, White and Blue You
Sometimes mens more formal attire can feel somewhat limiting. Business clothing generally needs to be dark or muted colors and that can leave men with few opportunities to make any real fashion decisions. A special tie, however, can be what sets you apart from a group. A well-chosen tie will always ensure that you look smart and professional. Pair this with your patriotic passion and you will exude both style and confidence. Since Flag lapel pins have become somewhat controversial in our PC world, how does one show some perfectly healthy allegiance to one’s country? Why not wear a tie that shows your true colors. While some patriotic ties can be a bit flashy, there are others that feature very subtle prints and designs that incorporate the symbols of America quite beautifully into stylish stripes or all-over designs.
