Daily Outfit: Clash of the checks

 I really wanted to go for another triple clash-athon today with checks, but sadly I do not have a necktie, bowtie nor neckerchief that is in any way checked or gingham.

I decided on the black bowtie to really contrast the checks of the blazer and shirt, and I think it looks quite good, even if the bowtie is a pre-tied clip on job.

I realised half-way through the day that taking the jacket off meant I was wearing an entirely orange outfit, which I wasn’t overly thrilled with. This daily outfit was made up of:
Navy gingham blazer – Larsen’s Country Store, Etsy
Orange gingham button-down shirt – Polo Ralph Lauren
Black silk cheats bowtie – Tie Rack
Black leather belt – Raphael Steffens
Burnt orange chinos - FCUK
Distressed black leather shoes – Raphael Steffens

And so now I am in the market for a navy and white, and an orange and white, gingham necktie to add to my collection and to give me further clashing options. I you chance upon one, give me a yell :)


  1. Loving the gingham on gingham! Orange and blue always looks great

  2. You look totally dapper! I envy your style:). Whenever I wear any kind of patterned shirt people tell me I look like Annie Oakly...I take my hat off too you :P
