Alexander Olch may be one of the premier names in luxury neckwear, but the designer’s story is far from conventional. Olch didn’t study fashion or apprentice in his craft. He actually got his start in the men’s accessories game after completing a thesis film at Harvard. Rather than a T-shirt or a baseball hat, Olch decided to make a necktie as a gift for his crew. It took him about a year and half to get the sample back — long enough to lose track of the crew — but he decided to show it to some old friends at dinner one evening in the early 2000s. They wanted to buy it, and a business was born. Over the course of the following years, Olch expanded his offerings to a full line of neckties, bow ties, and accessories: all made in New York, and all cut from the finest materials. A decade after its founding, Olch’s signature combination of Old World craftsmanship and distinctly modern style is still going strong.
Sure, fall is right around the corner, but we’re not done with summer yet. And that means we’re not done with summer wedding season, either. Which is exactly why we’ve pulled together this assortment of essential picks for that upcoming nuptial celebration. Lay the right foundation with a stylishly refined suit, add a seasonally appropriate pop of color with bright shoes or accessories, top things off with a well-timed toast, and you’ll be good to go (just don’t upstage the groom).
Every man needs a navy blue suit; it's the cornerstone of a grownup wardrobe. Once you have one (and we have plenty in this sale, from Calvin Klein White Label, Joseph Abboud, Tommy Hilfiger and more), there's the matter of how to wear it, and with what? Try a modern ensemble, with vibrant saddle shoes from Florsheim’s collaboration with Duckie Brown and a textured skinny tie from Clapham. Or go old-school, with suspenders from Alexander Olch. While your biggest decision should be your shirting, we’ve made things easy with tons of options to classic French cuffs from Hickey Freeman, to bold stripes from Thomas Pink to white sport shirts from <span>BLK</span> <span>DNM</span>.
Setting your sights on that big promotion? Better start dressing with just enough personality to stand out — while maintaining all appropriate professionalism, of course. With the smart suiting, essential accessories, and crisp dress shirts in this sale, you’ll be comfortably seated in your new office in no time.
