Like a previous post of mine, here, I think men have a tough time being able to get out of the garden variety solid shirt and solid tie. Many times I see a man with a checked shirt, or a striped shirt, paired with a solid tie. They don’t know how to properly put on a tie that goes well with it, or doesn’t clash. There’s one key here  ...
