Basic Basics


How much more basic does it get than a navy suit, white shirt, and navy/white striped necktie? What the camera doesn’t show is the herringbone weave of the shirt. It doesn’t quite capture the windowpane pattern woven into the suit. It does show, however, the rep stripe in the weave of the tie going the opposite direction of the white stripe. It’s not as basic as it seems on the surface but it didn’t take any thought either.

The shirt is TM Lewin and the tie is another Turnbull and Asser that I thrifted quite some time ago. It seems to be fairly old yet still knots majestically. This model’s label reads “The ‘Turnbull’ Tie but lacks the reference to being the Prince of Wales’ shirt maker. Maybe a clue to its age?

And a semi-artsy photo:
