As the wedding season approaches and more and more men choose to have day wedding attire in the form of a navy suit and tie as opposed to black tie for the evening, many of the grooms that come past are looking for something to pop with their navy or mid blue suit. It's not necessarily that they are looking for the brightness of a satin weave but more that they are looking for texture, colour and a playfulness in light. A wedding day is a celebration and in my opinion it should be a happy occasion rather than solemn and sober. I know that's how you are supposed to take your vows to one another but it is after all a time of merriment (for most).
So, before you set out to buy one of those dusty English madder silk ties or regimental stripes which look like they have been living in your grandfather's old suitcase in the attic since the 1930's, consider something fresh and fun.
