I worked in several companies where dress code was as written rule. Very formal 4 days a week and Friday was a casual day. Many meetings were held on quite high level. Important persons were present, so we had white shirts, suits as dark as possible and ties that matched the suits. Women participants had more options, as always. Be it as trousers + blouse + jacket or skirt + blouse + jacket. Usually over 30 people were attended on those meetings, especially on Monday mornings when previous week activities were discussed and plan for common week were presented. As so many people were involved in debate, sometimes I had opportunity to observe how men were dressed. Half of them with black suits, tie with angled stripes and white shirt as mentioned before. I was little bit younger as I am today so I had taken some risk and wore some different ties, with motive with planes, snoopies, bikes, rewards, clocks, elephants, bees and even strawberries.
I had adequate suits so the patterns match the ties. I must confess I felt very “casual” wearing such kind of ties. I was noticed.
Of course there were also some very important meetings with presence of secretaries of state, members of their cabinets and other important men and women. There I couldn’t wear such “funny” ties, I needed to pick more serious ties.
As owner of Vittori Swimwear Brand thinking about the patterns on the new model for the new collection, had in mind, why not offer something elegannt. On our last visit to Fabric Stock in Noventa di Piave (Italy) I saw beautiful fabric very elegant pattern, black fabric with vertical stripes. Perfect for men who seek elegance even when having holidays. Our model called “Elegance” was born. But our swimwear wouldn’t be so simple as looks at first sight. To create contrasts we reverse the fabric on the waist part.
