Background, I am a straight male, 31, engaged and just took a promotion where I have to shirt and tie it everyday. Over the past month I spent about $3k on new clothing. I mostly shop at Macys and Nordstroms as they have decent stuff and they are somewhat affordable. I am not going to be a fashion person that goes and buys something just because of the name brand. So, what I am having a hard time with is matching shirts, pants and ties. Shoes arent an issue, I have more shoes than most women but anyway, I need help I have shirts with verticle stripes and shirts with checkered patterns and of course plain shirts dont need help with those. I have plain pants and pin stripes. Then I have about 15 ties with a variety of patterns. My question is how the fuck to I match the pants to the shirts and then the ties. Can I wear a pin stripe pants with a checkered shirt? I do not think that I can but I dont have the dressing rule book either. Then what do I do about ties? What kinda patterns? See where I am going with this?? Any advice, links to advice et al would be of great help. Thanks!
