Bow Ties
The big, floppy variety are very fashionable right now for evening dressing for small collared shirt-smaller bow tie. Bow ties have to be tied by hand. i.e : tie by yourself
Slim ties are better. Stripes are classic that work well in the right context of event or work place.
Men might want to have something thats funky and stylish when comes to your cuffs, but keep them neutral and subtle for work wear.
Woven leather or cloth, simple, plain belts are the way to go. Striped polo belts work for casual wear well.
Never match your socks to your suit. If you're going formal always make sure they're at least two shades darker than what you're go on and if you're casual go in for color.
