Getting back to black suit #menswear basics, it’s time to go monochromatic + add a tie. Pairing a white shirt & black tie has become commonplace when you reach for your black suit and you know what — that’s perfectly fine, it works! The risks you run by going the traditional black & white monochromatic suit route are;  looking too formal as if you’re going to a wedding, giving off maître d vibes or like you’re headed to a funeral. Unless you’re Tom Ford, your black & white suited look might need a hit of pattern to give it more personality.

  • The Pin Dot Micro Print: a micro pin dot is a great way of expanding of your pattern style because is not as prominent as a large polka dot. Because of its scale and spacing from afar the shirt appear to be flat white
  • The Stripe Black & White Tie: pattern mixing can be difficult, but, the key to why this combination works — the striping on the tie is larger than the pin dot the pattern of the shirt. Once again it comes down to scale and proportion
  • Play Up The Monochromatic Palette: keep the rest of the look just as uniform. Pops of color will detract from the overall polished aesthetic
  • Alternate Shirt Option: are pin dots too advance for you style? Opt for a Bengal stripe pattern shirt and keep the same tie
