The 5 Tie Styles Every Man Should Own
They say that the tie is one of the first things people notice about your outfit. It’s what differentiates you from every other black suit in the office or all other white shirts at a wedding. With so many different neckwear options out there, we want to make sure that you are making the right choices. Although think that you can never have too many ties, if you’re only going to own a couple then there are 5 distinct styles you should have hanging in your closet.
- Textured Tonal Tie
The basic textured tonal can take you from day to evening across a wide range of formal or social events. It’s modern yet classic and is oh-so in this fall. Pair your tonals with a solid or patterned shirt as long as your tie and shirt have patterns of different scale.
- Stripe Tie
You can never go wrong with a strong, clean stripe. We call this look a power-stripe because it exudes confidence and shines when worn in a business environment. Stick to bold, clean colors and a clean white or blue shirt for maximum impact.
- Traditional Paisley
We know that the paisley can be a polarizing look in the style community. Just read our blog post dedicated entirely to the subject. While some men can’t stand its old school vibe, we love this classic look. As far as we’re concerned, you can never go wrong with a paisley tie.
- Fun or Conversational Pattern
Everyone needs a ‘fun’ tie to wear to those not-so-serious lifecycle events that still require formal attire. Keep the hues lighter and more whimsical and you can wear this type of tie to summer weddings or an office party. This is the tie that will get you noticed!
- Plaid or Tartan Tie
A nice tartan or clean striped plaid will always be in style. It adds colour and pop to any outfit with a solid colored shirt. Although it is often worn in a business setting, we would vote for wearing a plaid tie to a more casual event. Think Labor Day BBQ, khakis, crisp blue shirt, plaid tie and beer in hand. Can’t you picture it?
