You Look Handsome in a Tie
These are the ties you’ll be wanting to pick up.
People always say “nice tie”.
They can’t help it. Because their eye can’t help but go there.
And that’s because a tie allows you to pull together all the varying parts and patterns of your outfit. It’s a unifier. The think piece of your ensemble.
Thusly equipped with knowledge, get over to Chicago’s Tie Bar, the handsomely appointed pop-up shop in Lincoln Park.
You’ve got till the end of the year to visit. You should go now.
Here’s why: ties.
Plus: a shuffleboard table, a Joe’s pop-up barbershop (you’ll need to call ahead) and, yes, rows and rows of patterned wool, textured silk knits and striped linens laid out for your perusal.
Three styles we recommend:
- The Wool Knit: The Fair Isle knit is perfect for drawing eyes this season
- The Dark and Narrow: Exceptionally versatile. We like this textured check option.
- The Repp: Diagonal stripe. A shot of prep. Time-honored red and blue never fails.
Plus accessories like belts, socks, wooly scarves and a superb collection of pocket squares.
Oh, and tie bars. Lots of tie bars.
Just remember: the tie is your I-Pass.
Wear one, and you get to where you want to go faster.
Nota bene: The pop-up shop will be hosting a series of events with GQ throughout November and December. Stay updated here.
