The men’s necktie was once a standard part of office attire, more like part of a uniform than fashion accessory. Today, however, the necktie has evolved to become a fashion statement on its own. It can be used as a standout piece aimed at attracting attention, to add a pop of color to an otherwise conservative men’s suit or to dress up a more casual outfit.
For the sartorially savvy, owning a collection of quality silk ties in a variety of colors, styles and patterns provides a versatile and fashion forward means of creating strong, stylish looks. Add the Navy and Burgundy Plaid tie to your collection. Hand made from pure Italian silk, this elegant tie brings color, pattern and texture and works well with navy or charcoal grey men’s suits.
Neckties also add professionalism and polish to any men’s suit. Some things to consider when purchasing ties: length and width. The tie should hit just above your belt/waistline. A length of 57’ to 59’ is standard but your individual height should be considered.
Width is also important and 3’ width is standard but again consider other factors including your physique and the width of your suit’s lapels. Also be sure to never wear a tie bar that exceeds the width of your tie and avoid wearing novelty or flamboyant ties that will detract from your professional look.
