The Brown Tie
Not so Boring Anymore


When you wear a brown tie you create a sense of warmth and openness about you. Whether it is deep chocolate or light ochre, brown creates a down to earth air that makes people want to approach you.

Brown is a color as timeless and ageless as the earth itself. The soil is brown, as is the bark on trees and the fur of many animals (including the hair on human's heads). It is so common to our existence as human beings that it has no special connotations culturally as do many other colors.

Red, yellow, green, these are all colors with strong meanings depending on the part of the world you reside in, but brown does not. When we think of the color we think of nature, earthiness, and warmth. It is a calm color that soothes rather than excites.

Matching a Brown Tie with your Suit and Shirt

Of course, you may question how to match a brown necktie to your suit and shirt. You can wear a white shirt, because it goes with everything, but because brown is such a basic color you may want to shake things up a little bit with color and/or patterns.

A great example would be a chocolate brown suit matched with a pink shirt and a chocolate brown necktie. If you want to jazz things up a bit try adding pink Stripes or Geometric Patterns to the tie for a really classy ensemble. Of course, if you are wearing a Solid Color Tie then it is a good idea to have a patterned shirt to liven things up a bit.

Also try to remember that as a general rule brown and black do not mix. Think of them as foundation colors that the rest of an outfit is built on, and you can't lay two foundations on top of each other. Some other colors that go well with brown include: baby blue, all shades of green, navy blue, burgundy, deep orange, and lilac. More on Matching Tie and Shirt.
