Expressing Yourself With A Suit Without The Tie




Ways to Express Your Personal Style in a Suit That Go Beyond a Tie

Ways men can express themselves while wearing a suit


Repost off www.wsj.com with select edits 

Q: I am now into wearing a suit with a tie on social occasions (restaurants, clubs, church, etc.), even when most of the other guys there are in business casual. Yes, I do appreciate all the compliments I get from everybody (including other men). How can I style my suits in a sharper way, so they are more of my personal signature—with ties, belts shirt combinations, etc.? (My favorite colors are gray, blue and black.)
A: Thanks to a new generation of stylish men like you, suits with ties will remain relevant and often exciting because of your insistence on wearing suits as your preferred social attire.
When you choose to wear a suit, that’s when the real fun of “dressing up” begins. Today’s versions of legendary expressive suit-wearers Fred Astaire and the Duke of Windsor aren’t necessarily from the red carpet. They’re an eclectic mix of fashion personalities and ordinary men on the street, as shown on sites such as ArticlesofStyle.com and the Sartorialist.com, as well as on Instagram and Pinterest. It all starts with a suit, altered to fit you to a T.
Dressed  Down Suit 
Among the fresh takes on suit style I’ve noticed: a faded denim shirt, with or without a tie, instead of a dress shirt; and a dark-denim sports coat, as sharp as worsted wool. Or a pinstripe jacket uncoupled from its matching trousers and worn with solid slacks instead. Try replacing a tie with an artfully draped scarf. And here’s an unexpected surfer accessory for a suit and tie: a stack of tie-on bracelets as shown on film producer Andrew Lauren in a Ralph Lauren ad.
There’s an arresting street-style photo exhibit in Harlem called “From Dapper to Dope: The Exquisite and Enduring Style of Harlem Men,” featuring African-American men from Harlem—young and old—wearing sharp suits with Afrocentric flourishes and all kinds of hats.

Keep experimenting with boots, suspenders, waistcoats and pocket squares. As for your gray, blue and black suit components, they need the visual interest of accent colors such as a silver puffer vest and brown suede gloves with a gray suit.

Do Men's Shoes Have Match The Suit?





Do Shoes Have to Match a Man’s Suit?

Men Can Wear a Range of Colorful Shoes With Most Any Outfit

Q: I have recently noticed more suited men wearing dark blue, dark gray and a host of dark-colored suits with brown shoes. This seems to divert the first impression to the shoes as they seem out of place. Shouldn’t shoes match the belt?
—F.K., Scottsdale, Ariz.
I’ve noticed a number of men, young and/or middle-aged wearing brown or tan shoes with blue, gray or black suits. Is that proper? It certainly looks out of place to me.
—H.G., Lee’s Summit, Mo.
A: So many guys remember wistfully when shoes were an afterthought, and matchy-matchy ruled. Most men dutifully wore black belts with black shoes when their suits were any variation of gray, navy or black. Brown and tan shoes were allowed to come out for khakis with navy blazers.
As casual business attire and individual style gave men more leeway, more guys gained confidence to mix textures and colors. Flashback to the self-possessed Fred Astaire in a gray flannel suit with tobacco-brown suede brogues and a dark-cordovan snakeskin belt.
Belts can go beyond the usual smooth or woven leather or reptile models. A ribbon-stripe belt or a braided elastic and leather-trimmed belt—usually paired with polo shirts and khakis—are a refreshing break from leather belts. Then there’s the downtown accent of a leather belt covered with tiny, metal stud that says cool, not bling.
Don’t fret if you don’t have the knack for these combos. Enlist a skilled personal shopper to walk you to the shoe department and introduce you to the world of navy pants with tan desert boots.
Just like your eye got used to the look of slimmer suits in recent years, you’ll start thinking way beyond the usual black and brown shoes, to introduce more color on your feet, such as driving loafers, boat shoes and velvety loafers in unexpected shades like red, dark green and purple, worn with dark denim, khaki or even white jeans. Remember, you can wear a range of colorful shoes with most any suit, or sport coat and slacks.
