Shielded or crested ties have always been a favorite of mine. They’re classic and resemble power. This silk one I’m wearing is handmade by Parsley and is sold at an affordable price. Mixing highs and lows has always been how i love to dress. This pair of levis I’m wearing are the most comfortable pants i own. I paired them with a classic blue blazer i found at Goodwill. A blazer similar to this is a wardrobe staple that i would highly recommend investing in. I paired this blazer with a great fitting shirt from Uniqlo (which fits just as well as the ones i own from jcrew), a pair of saddle shoes from G.H. Bass and a gold tie bar from Dibi Ties. All these pieces are classic, affordable and most importantly, will never go out of style.
