Ties, Sharpening Men to Gentlemen for Centuries

A
necktie is an essential part of a man’s wardrobe. Ties upgrade nearly any
collared shirt to formal attire and are an everyday need for a wide range of
professions. Ties
and fashion
are much more than the price tag and the pattern. Ties may
seem like a simple accessory, but one should not waste money on a poor-quality
tie. Instead, you should find something that brings style and class to the
forefront and fits your wallet.

Choose
your Right Fit

So how
do you choose a quality necktie? Firstly, choose the right material. Top-notch
ties are typically one hundred percent silk, though the chances are that a tie
made from some other material is necessary for some situations. Low-quality
ties tend to be products of thin or inexpensive materials that fall apart quite
easily — never sacrifice quality on a necktie you want to wear to office or
make a long-term accessory of your wardrobe. And while the price tag doesn’t
always measure quality, you can typically expect that cheap ties won’t hold up
well. The better-quality ties tend to fall in the high range, but you mustn’t
feel obligated to spend more money on something beautiful. If the necktie isn’t
affordable, you’re probably buying for the brand name more than anything else,
and there is no need to squander hard-earned money on an ordinary-looking
necktie just because it comes from a top designer’s stable.

The fun
part of tie-shopping is selecting the right style. Well, read on and check out
exactly how a tie should be worn and why wearing it right is the simplest way
to up your fashion quotient.

The Art of Wearing

Just like your socks, your tie
is one accessory with which you can play around and express your persona while
sticking to that official dress code.

  • The width and length of ties is the fussiest
    part of tie-wearing. A broader person should choose a slightly wider tie
    whereas a slim tie suits a skinny person. The length of a tie should hit the waistband
    of a trouser.
  • Factors like suits, shirt color, and skin tone
    play a role in the color of the tie you should wear. Generally, the thumb rule
    of ties and fashion is that deep sober colors like burgundy and blues go
    well with any attire.

Choose the right necktie to look
sharper.
