Sharp Dressed Man

Does the man make the suit, or the suit make the man? Regardless of your stance on the matter, one thing is for sure: Gentlemen, a good suit goes a long way. And with the right shirt, tie and accessories – you can add extra sophistication to your attire.

Don’t believe it? Take the advice of Barneys New York’s very own menswear expert and store director, Tim Ceci.

“Nothing beats starting your day wearing a trim-fit, all wool Italian-made Ralph Lauren Black Label suit (at $1595); featuring a two button jacket with side vents and slacks with adjustable side tabs. Can’t beat the value – a real wardrobe builder in navy, charcoal and black.”

“You can coordinate the suit with a terrific dress shirt from Guy Rover or Fairfax, available in cool ginghams, stripes and checks with just the right collar spread for the modern man. Button downs, too. These Italian shirts are priced between $215 and $265. Plus, they have an unbeatable fit.”

Mens Sport Shirts

“These shirts look smart with an open collar, but if you want to step it up with an updated classic tie in bold rich colors, stripes and patterns, look no further than Michael Drake. Available in two widths and starting at $135, these ties from London will endure from season to season.”
