• The Best Street Style From Mens Fashion Week
    The Best Street Style From Mens Fashion Week

    All the ladies may be getting ready for next month’s frenzy of fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris – but let’s not forget what’s happening right now: Mens Fashion Week!

    Whilst designers have been presenting the most covetable menswear collections for autumn/winter ’16, the male fashion pack have been busy striking a pose for the best street style photographers, setting the trends that matter the most: the street trends happening right now. Amidst the bomber jackets, turtlenecks and classically oversized coats, we spotted one of our favourite My Kind Of Tie things: ties!

    Proving that the gentleman look is still very much alive, we spotted ties in so many shapes and colours and on all kinds of style trotters. We love how these stylish men have combined style with elegance and sharply on-trend looks. Here we have gathered a few of our favourite shots from the past week in two very different and stylish cities…

    Mens Fashion Week London

    We can’t help feel a little partial to the first mens fashion week (held from the 8th to 11th of January), as it takes place in one of our favourite cities. London never disappoints when it comes to savvy street style. Known for their daring and irreverent attitudes towards fashion, Londoners know just how to give the classic gentleman look a fiercely modern and individual feel…

    Italy is synonymous with perfect tailored suiting, an innate sense of elegance, love of fashion and, most importantly, that style has no age. All these qualities have been brilliantly shining through on the stylish streets of Florence’s prestigious Pitti Uomo show and Milano Fashion Week for the past few days…

  • Blogger Spotlight: Damien Broderick
    Blogger Spotlight: Damien Broderick

    We are thrilled to announce that our latest blogger spotlight is with Irish fashion blogger Damien Broderick, one of Ireland’s top male bloggers. The ridiculously stylish blogger showcased two of our pieces in his latest blog post, aptly titled “How To Be Dapper.” Talk about a lesson in style!

    Damian Broderick My Kind Of Tie12

    Damien styled our charming Tobias striped bow tie in a classic yet dashing way. We love a good print clash and Damien seems to have mastered it in such a way that it’s a true art form! The jacket may have its own statement print but its slim and muted tones are a surprising match made in heaven with our bow tie. The dotted pocket square makes for a playful finishing touch – eye-catching yet subtle.

    The perfect balance between sophistication and on-trend style, we love Damien’s take on dapper style. The waistcoat, slim trousers and loafers all have timeless appeal and yet they give this look a thoroughly modern feel. The burnt orange shade of our Tobias bow tie, of course, stands out beautifully against the navy backdrop.

    Damien also threw in our pink Gilbert tie into his fabulous mix of prints. Adding a super chic camel coat and houndstooth scarf, the print mesh up worked wonders yet again thanks to the soft tones in our timeless Gilbert tie.

    Damien proves that dressing like a true gentleman need not be boring, don’t you think?

    Blogger Collab: Nirina from Killer Fashion’s Christmas Gift Guide

    Can you believe there are only 4 days left til Christmas? Here at My Kind Of Tie we are spoilt for choice for stocking fillers, as who wouldn’t love our ties and bow ties for Christmas!

    Who also agrees with us is the gorgeous Irish fashion blogger Nirina, the author behind the hit fashion blog Killer Fashion by Nirina. We asked Nirina to pick her favourite My Kind Of Tie pieces and Nirina included them in her fabulous Mens Gift Guide! Every gentleman deserves a great selection of ties and bow ties – be it for work or play – and we couldn’t have said it better than Nirina:

    “I’m sure you ladies know a handful of guys who wear a tie every day to work, or opt for the bow tie come special occasions. These guys are one of my favourites, especially when they work the accessory into everyday casual attire. Just as much as I love a man who wears a good suit, I love a man who knows how to accessorize.”

    Nirina incuded a fabulous series of collages of some her picks from My Kind Of Tie:

    We suspect Nirina may be a little parcial towards the colour blue… who can blame her? This one is our Nicholas tie.

    A big thank you to the lovely Nirina for including us in her Christmas Gift Guide – you can read the full post here!

  • Go Print Clashing With Our Bow Ties
    Go Print Clashing With Our Bow Ties

    Here at My Kind Of Tie it’s no secret that we love prints in all shapes, colours and sizes. And whilst normally we would say one print at a time is enough for a gentleman, we also believe in stirring things up a little too. So why not go print clashing and wear one of our fabulous My Kind Of Tie print bow ties with a printed shirt? This fashion-forward trend will surprise you for all the right reasons, providing a quirky, highly individual look. Not convinced? Read these tips on how to pull off this unashamedly trendy and unexpectedly chic look like a true gentleman.

    Try stripes on stripes. A striped bow tie and striped shirt? It might sound like a stripe overdose but the key is to be playful with the choice of stripes – the more different in size, the more stylish you will look.


    Our Kobe bow tie will look dashing with a striped shirt.

    Or go for contrasting shapes. Dots on stripes? Florals on stripes? Chequered on chequered? If you get the colours right, it’ll look dashing.


    Our charming London bow tie proves that florals and stripes can work wonders.

    Clash the prints as long as the colours work. This is the main key to getting print clashing right – go mad with prints so long as the colour mesh up ties in accordingly. In other words, know your colour contrasts and find out what all the different shades of red, blue and yellow have to offer…


    Our Eddie bow tie will contrast beautifully with a print shirt that has navy or blue tones.

    Chequered shirts can make great alleys. Yes, it might seem unlikely, but in the same way that striped shirts can be the perfect base for printed bow ties, simple chequered shirts be a playfully chic backdrop.


    Our Trace bow tie will look bold and beautiful with a subtly chequered shirt.

    You can stick to similar and subtle shades. If it all gets a bit much but you are still keen on the print on print look, keep your bow tie and shirt choices simple by going for classic shades and subtle prints, both in the same colour palette – there’s nothing wrong with small dots and thin stripes.


    Our Franklin bow tie will stand out against a blue printed shirt thanks to its dotted print.

    We won’t blame you if you decide to stick to the plain yet classy look – shop our varied selection here and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more inspiration!

  • Back To Work In Style With My Kind Of Tie
    Back To Work In Style With My Kind Of Tie

    Leaves are falling, the evenings are getting darker, the days are slightly chillier and many of us are coming back from our holidays… Yes, summer may be coming to an end but autumn need not be a time of mourning, as at My Kind Of Tie we have just what a gentleman needs to go back to work in style!

    Autumn is known for its distinct colour palette, why not take inspiration from this? There is no better season to embrace deeper and richer shades of red, ochre and green for a true gentleman look.


    Try something new with our James plain tie. Its burnt orange shade makes an elegant statement and will subtly brighten up any dark outfit as well as those drab autumn days.

    For the gentleman who likes stripes as well as rich autumnal shades, our Marco striped tie will be the perfect add-on for any work suit and business meetings.

    Going back to work can be tough but why not make a celebration out of it with our brilliant Jacob plain tie. Ravishing without being ostentatious, it is a beautiful tie that will add an instant touch of dash to your hard-working days.


    If you happen to work in a place where ties aren’t a must but looking smart is, our lustrous Ronan bow tie will make you stand out for all the right reasons this autumn.

    Dark chequered prints work wonders for the colder seasons and our Trace bow tie couldn’t be more dashing. Wear it for a charismatic work look with a simple grey or denim blue shirt.

    Our Quincy bow tie has a true autumnal feel thanks to its ochre and black palette, and will look both subtle and eye-catching against a dark suit or light plain shirt.

    We think our dashing ties and bow ties will instantly make going back to work a lot easier – but in the meantime enjoy the last few weeks of summer and keep in touch by following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
