There are few more quintessentially British style statements a man can make than adding a striking paisley tie to his ensemble. Whether worn with a tweed jacket as part of truly English Heritage inspired look, or with a modern business suit for added detail and flair, a paisley tie is a timeless classic that every man should have in his collection. With that in mind, here at DQT we’re proud to stock a wide range of ties featuring this iconic design.
Though the intricate pear shaped designs actually have Persian and Indian origins, paisley as a textile choice became a very popular option here in the UK back in the ‘summer of love’ in the 1960’s, and has remained perennially in favour ever since. The town called Paisley, in Scotland, has of course become famous for producing its own versions of the famous teardrop style design and producing it on everything from soft furnishings to clothing.
Paisley ties are a truly classic accessory that can really finish off an outfit in style – whether you’re dressing for the office or putting together more casual attire, at DQT there is a paisley tie to suit.
For a more subtle take on the trend, look at paisley styles in darker, muted colours such as black and navy, where the elaborate paisley motif is less prominent, adding delicate detail and interest to your finished look. Our black skinny paisley tie allows you to mix the classic motif with contemporary style perfectly. If you’re feeling braver, at DQT we also stock bold paisley prints in a rainbow of colours – vibrant golden yellow perhaps? Or a vivid turquoise is a style statement worth making, and to really embrace your inner ‘country gent’, why not team your choice with a matching handkerchief folded into a stylish pocket square?
Paisley ties are also a great choice for wedding parties, either in classic ivory, contemporary silver or a brighter hue, perhaps to coordinate with bridesmaids dresses. The elegant look and feel of paisley helps to add opulence to plainer suits so that the men in the wedding party can embrace the glamour of the occasion too!
In short, the popularity of paisley is thanks to its wonderful versatility and timeless style. Which paisley tie will you add to your collection?
