When you own essential apparel, you can mix and match items from your closet to create striking outfits. Here's an example of me mixing different brands, patterns, and material into a dapper outfit. As every item I purchased follows the guidelines in the Simple Style Manual with a particular focus to fit, it all comes together in harmony. I demonstrate the most basic rule of matching colors which is contrast. Here I had on a dark blazer, light shirt, and dark tie. What you don't see is I was wearing a pair of solid black trousers. I keep the bottom half understated as my top half is busy with patterns.
The pocket square, lapel pin, and bracelet are part of the first line of accessories by the Simple Style Manual. The crowd funding campaign has launched and we are offering a wide range of striking suit accessories for men who dares to make a statement. The pocket squares are handcrafted in North America and only a limited quantity is produced.
