Best Dress Shirt & Tie Combinations

While it appears simple, attempting to find the best tie and shirt combination is often a failure. We’ve created this comprehensive Savile Row style guide to ensure that you make the right look.

The best Shirt with Tie A Check Shirt

Although formal striped shirts allow for some flexibility in pairing with patterned tie designs, a check shirt should always be worn in a more elaborate pattern (or block colour) to ensure it is not lost. To maximize the effect, try to match your tie to the check colour of your shirt instead of the white base that most styles will have.

The Most Effective Shirt and tie Combinations with a Simple Shirt

The timeless, versatile, elegant, and simple formal shirt provides the perfect blank canvas for every luxury silk tie, particularly those with patterns. If you pick white, light blue, or pink, we recommend pairing your silk tie with contrasting colours decorated with polka dot stripes or a fun design.

The most elegant tie and shirt Combinations with the Striped shirt

When deciding on the perfect tie to wear with a striped shirt, look for two styles that complement each other rather than conflict. The most straightforward way is to choose a unisex tie colour. For those who want to be more adventurous, ensure that the pattern of your tie is more pronounced or striking than those on the shirt. They are an excellent choice for stripes and stripes, provided they’re not identical in dimensions.
