Monday Outlook: Going Horizontal

Take a look at any tie collection, and there's bound to be a repertoire ranging from solid to printed patterns, wool to linen, skinny to classic, and everything in between. When it comes to the striped ties, however, most tend to be diagonal, repp stripe ties, a menswear staple most assuredly. But as with all things, there must be variations to classics to change up the mood.
With pinstripe suits being back in the game after a long hiatus from the men's world, the greatest contrast that can be made is with horizontal stripes; this is where ties comes into play. Many in-tune designers have a variety of horizontal stripe ties to choose from and one the best options is the colorblock stripe tie. There's also room for horizontal stripe shirts as well, providing an even more unique aspect to an outfit, just not together with a horizontal stripe tie on top of it.
The only issue with a horizontal shirts is the where to find them with options being few and far between or having to be bespoke made. The best way to embrace this trend is through ties due to their price point, availability, and color options. As previously mentioned, colorblock ties are a great option, but there are many more to choose from for any personality or wardrobe. Another great characteristic to play with is the fabric and texture; a knit double stripe tie or wool multi stripe would add a great texture contrast.
