The Paisley Necktie

The Paisley Necktie

Paisley neckties happen to my favorite type of necktie. Paisley is simply a repeating, curved design of Middle Eastern origin. The paisley figures are usually ornately bordered and filled with abstract designs, and are placed against a solid background, sometimes with smaller floral figures in between the paisley figures. Paisley is also a symbol of virility and manliness.

The Paisley provides a somewhat casual look, but it's useful for the same reason as a polka dot pattern: you're not echoing a pattern that exists anywhere else in the outfit, except perhaps the pocket square.

Here are some thoughts on the Paisley necktie:

- For a More Relaxed Business Look: A muted, dark hue with some light highlights brings out the paisley pattern without getting overwhelming. Busy, but not gaudy.

- For a Fun Look: A lighter background will really make the paisley figures pop out boldly. 

In my opinion, a Paisley tie is a pretty good part of every wardrobe. Own one and you won't regret it. For two great choices we recommend the McKinney Tie and the Carlyle Tie.
