As summer approaches, many companies will be relaxing their dress codes a little bit, perhaps not requiring ties during the hottest months of the year. That said, a “no tie required” stipulation doesn’t mean that it’s going to be an endless sea of Casual Fridays – you still need to find a way to look like you mean business while you’re at work.
This is why we recommend the “Notie” collar – it’s perfect for those days in the office when all you need is comfort, style, and a smart business vibe. It’s a one-piece curled and curved collar that does not have a top button or button hole, created specifically for days when you won’t be wearing a tie.
Knit shirts with a polo collar are a popular choice in the summer, but the polo collar doesn’t always give the authoritative look that businessmen need on a day-to-day basis. If this is the dilemma you find yourself in when you’re trying to put together your summer business wardrobe, then the Notie collar is definitely for you. It completely transforms your work outfits while still keeping you in style.
Best of all, the Notie shirt is versatile. At the office, it can be worn with a suit or a sport coat and slack, and transitions seamlessly for after-work drinks or dinner. It can also be dressed down to a pair of jeans or five-pocket pants with a summer jacket for a smart casual look.
The collar is designed to look great on its own, which keeps the lines clean and simple – the only item Ken’s suggests to pair with the Notie is the pocket square for the jacket to add your own personal style touch to your look.
