A quality necktie is a key piece in every man’s wardrobe.
At David August, we dress the superstars of business, sports, and entertainment, and have become well known for our “over-the-top” attention to detail. Our team includes the finest master tailors in the world who meticulously handcraft each piece of clothing with exquisite detail and unmatched precision. Every fabric choice, every line, every stitch is our obsession. Every accessory from shoes, belts, ties, and knitwear are considered and planned to perfection. The wardrobes we create for our diverse clientele are unrivaled in quality.
The complete David August experience is like no other, from the inital meeting where measurements are taken and fabrics are chosen, to the final fitting where we ensure a well-tailored fit and ultimate satisfaction. This is when clients begin to understand the thrill of being impeccably dressed and the sense of power and pride that it brings.
This season David August is serving up a new mix on summer classics. We are delivering a fresh perspective to traditional patterned suits and sport coats by adding an array of soft colors in our summer fabrics. Accents in powder blues, light lavenders, soft tangerines, cool limes, and sunny yellows complement the warm season, and you will find them spinkled throughout beautiful solids, stripes, and plaids.
Many times, little thought is given to wardrobe accessories in the world of men’s fashion. However, a man’s accessories can often be a perfect reflection of his individuality and refined tastes. Often, it is the details found in the accessories that can make or break an outfit. There are great pieces that can be added to your current wardrobe to help elevate your look.
DRESS SHIRT The elements of the perfect shirt (collar shape, cuff type, body style, fabric pattern, and color) will help complement the shape of your face, physique, skin tone, and work well with all other aspects of your wardrobe.
NECK TIE & POCKET SCARF A quality necktie is a key piece in every man’s wardrobe. Solids, tone-on-tones, wovens, and patterns, from small to large and updated rep stripes, are all important in achieving certain looks. When purchasing neckwear, as rule of thumb it’s a safe bet to stay in the $100-plus price range. This helps ensure that the tie has an all-wool interlining (important in tying and holding a proper knot) and is made of a higher quality silk. Pocket scarves have made a strong comeback lately and variations in color and pattern-neatly folded or randomly stuffed-help complete a really great look.
SHOES & BELTS They should always match one another as closely as possible. Select a quality calfskin or exotic leather. Shoes should be well maintained and always polished. Choose a belt with a classic buckle made from high grade metal (sterling silver, et cetera).
CUFFLINKS New to vintage can be worn with suits, sport coats, or just a shirt and a great pair of jeans. This is a fantastic way to express your individual style.
