Man Fahion: All about Designer Ties

8:31 PM Contributed by JW


All men have the potential to look classy when wearing a designer tie. On the other hand, getting the wrong designer tie can also make you look immature, or downgrade your overall style. More so if you're a business professional, your designer tie makes a statement about you before the first handshake is even made. So before I go further, here are 4 fundamentals you need to consider before buying a designer tie. Tie Texture It's very important to choose a designer tie made of high quality material, natural fibres are always best, whether silk, cashmere or wool. However, silk ties don't go with every kind of suit, so be sure that the texture of the designer tie complements the texture of the suit. Like generally goes with like although there are exceptions, for example a woolen flannel suit looks very chic with satin ties, a complete contrast and opposite. Tie Length Make sure your designer tie is the right length. Most shop offer ties at 55/56 inches. Men's ties are at the correct length if they just about reach the belt buckle, which is generally 58 inches, although taller men may require even longer ties. Tie Colors When choosing designer tie color, you must always take into consideration color of your entire attire. The last thing you should do is to wear the same color tie with your shirt, which look formidable in darker tones. Red Tie/White Shirt This is the ultimate power dresser. It shows you mean business and want to be listened to. With a dark suit it is at its most potent. Red Tie/Blue Shirt You mean business, having things to say but are prepared to listen to those around you. You still want to be thought of as one of the boys. Refer to my earlier post on tie color and personality for more explanation. Tie Pattern It should never be larger than the size of your eye, or it will take the focus from your face. A large patterned designer tie will become the focal point of your outfit and distract from your face. Also, designer tie should take care not to clash with the pattern on the shirt or jacket and the rest of the clothing. For example, if you go with a striped tie, don't wear a similarly striped shirt or you could be mistaken for an optical illusion. Lastly, To keep the shape in your tie, it should be rolled u at teh end of the day. Do not hang it over a coat hanger or worst still, leave it knotted and pull over your head.
