Brand: Paul Smith
Material: Shell: 100% Cotton, Lining: 100% Cotton
Back in the day, a well-chosen necktie was a gentlemanly must-have. Well, guess what: It still is — although the reasoning behind the requirement has changed. Now, it's not about following the herd but standing out from it. And this sale has plenty of stylishly irreverent ways to stand out from the crowd, from updated takes on the classic critter-adorned silk tie to that preppy standby, the bowtie. However you wear yours, just make sure you pair it with a healthy dose of attitude. After all, bucking the office-casual trend makes you a veritable fashion rebel.
London-based designer Paul Smith largely adheres to the ages-old tradition of proper British tailoring, but he still loves thumbing his nose at it once in a while. His signature look emphasizes an irreverent mash-up of classic English styles — think extra-sharp tailoring juxtaposed against bright stripes and contrasting colors. Since launching his line in Paris in 1976, Smith has established himself as one of England's most prominent designers. Over the last 35 years, his eponymous brand has expanded to include everything from womenswear to eyewear to furniture; all with a famous fan base that counts stylish stars like Jude Law and David Bowie among its (not unsubstantial) number.
