Snazzy neckwear and advice from an NYC style guru

There are certain chaps around town whose style — and, more importantly, whose opinions on style — your correspondent really respects.

Elliot Aronow is one of those chaps.

He’s from New York, but hear me out, because you’ve got holiday parties to attend.

And because he just launched Jacques-Elliott, a snazzy line of ties and hankies arriving just in time for go-party-hopping season.

Aronow’s got what he calls a “punk rock gentleman’s vibe.” Think Brooks Brothers, but given several solid whacks with the cool stick via years hanging with guys like Chromeo and Mark Ronson.

Jacques-Elliott makes “The Perfect Tie”: a super-versatile 3 ⅛” wide crafted in Brooklyn from texture-rich fabrics that get noticed but still play nice with workaday ensembles.

We’re particularly fond of the Professor’s Choice in flecked donegal. It’s like funfetti cake for your neck.

And who doesn’t like funfetti cake?
