GQ Selects: Burberry’s Sophisticated Stripes

The most traditional knit ties are made of silk, followed by wool, then cotton. What makes this Burberry one incredibly modern, but just as sophisticated, is the fact that it’s slimmer and has this wonderful stripe pattern. Because the colors in it are muted, it doesn’t come across as being too preppy or too nautical.

It really marries beautifully with a pinstripe suit or a fall tweed sport jacket. Put it with a chambray shirt, put it with a white oxford, put it with anything.”

—Jim Moore, GQ Creative Director
