Tie and Pocket Square — Why They Should Never Match

In the world of men's fashion, there are quite a few mistakes that keep making the rounds, and it so happens that most men can't seem to see the light. Besides buying shoes designed for elves and mistaking pleather for leather, you might have been matching your pocket squares with your ties.  

Of course, you're not the only one guilty of this fashion mistake. In fact, most if not all men find it normal to have some continuity woven throughout their look. And since your tie sits in close proximity to your square, it's only natural to let them match.

So what's the point?

Well, for the most part, there's nothing wrong with wearing ties and pocket squares made from the same fabrics or pattern. But of course, you won't be wrong to make a change if you hold style and class in a high esteem.

Today, it's pretty easy to see stores stocking up on ties and pocket squares made from same fabrics and patterns. And of course, that's all the more reason why you should go with the flow, right?

Well, not so fast — just check out a few a good reasons why you should be different.

  • For starters, the whole idea of matching and uniformity is seen as cheap and old-fashioned. And this is especially true for pocket squares. Regardless of what you think, this small fashion accessory shows a true penchant for style that you wouldn't want to ignore. In other words, matching your pocket square with your tie shows that you're incapable of making even the simplest style decisions.

To sum it up, no matter how much you want simple things, you can actually do better than wearing exactly the same pocket square and tie.

  • Secondly, we know for sure that you've taken your time to choose the classiest of suits and finest of shoes. Now, don't you think your efforts will be wasted if you take the easy way out with your square choice?

Well, trust us, the matching set only portrays you as an amateur. And of course, nothing can be weirder than that! When you wear a tie and square that is the same, you'll only end up drawing attention for all the wrong reasons. In other words, onlookers will end up looking at your fashion mistake, instead of focusing on the other impressive details like your fitted suit and stylishly polished shoes.

So what's the way out?

It's pretty simple — just create balance in your looks! Instead of sticking with an exact match, focus on complementary colors and patterns. At this point, it's up to you to bring out the creativity in you and find the perfect balance. It's about time to let the world seems the full potential of your look. Stay classy!
