It’s May! You know what that means? It’s Derby season (well not just the Kentucky Derby, but also the Preakness and the Belmont)! Whether you’re at the tracks amidst the eclectic atmosphere or celebrating with friends at a party, you’re going to want to dress the part. With this month’s box of bold colors and patterns, you will be ready to paint the town red. To sweeten the deal, we’ve added a second neckwear item to the box.
Nothing says Derby party like fun colors and linen fabrics. This bold Sprezza striped linen tie by will really help you stand out but in a classic way. We recommends a solid white shirt and a light colored suit like this light blue houndstooth linen one. If you really want to fully embrace the Derby theme, take it to the next level and throw on a seersucker suit!
If you’re looking to ditch the tie this summer, this polka dot bow tie from DIBI should do the trick. It is the perfect accessory to wear outdoors, whether it’s a wedding or a day at the vineyards. With its woven blend, it’s the perfect touch to add a little texture to your whole look.
One of the most versatile fabrics out there is chambray. Its subtle texture and color will always add that extra pop to your look and can be worn in any season. Whatever pattern your tie is, whether it’s floral, polka, or stripes, this solid textured chambray pocket square by Four Fifty Five will complement it and balance it out.
Show a little skin with these awesome “no-show” socks by our NYC neighbors, N/A. Not only are they super comfy and perfect for the warm weather, but they won’t slide off your heels. Even though the world won’t see them while you’re wearing them, you still feel good knowing that they match the tie 😉
A good pair of dress shoes, if taken care of properly, can last you a lifetime. Shoe laces sadly won’t. Here’s a classic pair of waxed brown laces by Benjo’s to replace the old ones on your favorite pair of oxfords or brogues.
