Linen is, without a doubt, one of our absolute favorite fabrics for Spring and Summer. It’s very versatile and can appear by itself in a style that is made from 100% linen, or it can be combined with any number of fabrics like cotton, silk, and the ever-classic business fabric, wool.

From the boldest to the most minimalist of dressers, men’s ties can be a marvelous opportunity to express one’s personal style.
