Ties Are To Men As Jewelry Is To Women!

Various Silk Ties HangingThe holidays are right around the corner.  Here’s what you need to know to purchase that special tie for that special man. 

Grant Harris, Image Granted, explains that color and pattern of the tie should always coordinate.  There will always be color but not always a pattern.  Darker colors and smaller patterns are more formal, for boardroom wear or for at night.  These types of ties should be worn on a white-on-white dress shirt (and not to be worn with a button-down collared shirt!).  Light colors and large patterns are more casual and should be worn during the day.  However, patterns are best kept to a minimum and should not overpower the viewer. 

The length of the tie is a personal choice.  A good rule to follow is the front blade of the tie should reach the middle of the belt buckle.  Tie widths are trendy.  The most versatile width (and that used for business settings) falls between 3 and 3.5 inches. 

The fabric of the tie should match the season and the attire.  Lighter for warmer months, heavy for cooler months.  Silk is a preferred fabric for ties.  But, an advanced tie wearer knows the versatility of cotton, linen, wool and cashmere.  A tie is considered the finishing touch to the man’s ensemble.  Like a piece of art, it can paint his mood!
