Men's Ties

Sunday, 31 January 2010

mens tiesTies make far more essential influence to the image of a man rather than the place it takes in the costume. Moreover, a tie is the most expressive details of the wardrobe that helps to appreciate the personality of a man. Therefore, throughout the history all men pay a great attention to this small element, from men of Kin Dynasty or Roman legionaries with neck kerchiefs to Louis XIV in his lacy jabot.

A tie correctly chosen and properly tied is a good instrument to judge on the elegant, solid and respectable man.

There are simple rules to help you create the blameless image if properly followed.

Rule 1. Almost every tie is good with white shirt, though in summer the tie should be of lighter shades and the darker ties are best to wear in winter. The ratio when the tie should be darker than the shirt but lighter than the jacket should be followed. The pattern on the tie should match the color of the shirt, whether in stripes or lines.

Rule 2: Ties with prints should compliment single-color shirts and vice versa, smooth and one-color ties go with striped or lined shirts. A tie with solid stripes is the good way to look as a person of traditional classic taste and preferences. Within smart casual style ties allow polka dot, geometrical shapes and more extravagant patterns, as the oriental «cucumber» pattern, but the color gamut should be of moderate and solid shades from cream and beige to blue-grey. The official functions require ties with weaved patterns.

Rule 3. The knotted tie should cover the clasp of the men's belt, while in width it should go with the width of the lapels and the total design of the suit.

Rule 4. If you are the owner of the smooth and one-color suit, you'd better have a tie with large print to match. And the suit with stripes or checks is good to compliment with a modest tie with a fine pattern or a one-color one.

Rule 5. Avoid using short ties with solid prints like emblems, arms and also ties with pictures of beautiful girls under beach umbrellas; such ties look anti-elegantly.

Rule 6. A tie is good to select to match the color of suit and shirt, and do not forget your complexion! Rounded face is too discording with intense «geometric» pattern and with this complexion a print with softer lines is better, while men with solid and brave jaws will look ridiculous when wearing ties with striped and checked prints.

Rule 7. A tie looks not that good if you wear it with the short-sleeved shirt.

As for the fabric for ties, the best models are performed from silk, though synthetic fabric for ties is also widely-practiced. Also ties come from mixed fabric, cashmere, wool, flax or viscose to have cheaper output. When buying a tie, never choose a cheaper one! The accessory that builds your image deserves to be paid more!

Nicely looking tie from viscose will loose its shape quickly and ruins the look at the same time. On the other hand, are you ready to purchase some dozen of perfect Italian ties for everyday wear? Ties should be in abundance while the suit is enough to be one.  

Bear in mind that ties are not recommended to expose to washing and ironing, otherwise they loose their look and shape. You'd better take them to the dry-cleaning and if your tie gets crumpled, you may wind it round a pencil and leave it for a while. Never untie the knot of the tie taking a narrower end off the knot, otherwise the tie will be damaged and it is a pity especially if the tie is expensive and quality. You'd better untie this item in the sequence as you tied it, and then put in onto the hanger and live for a couple of days. Men use lots of ways to tie a knot and most of them find it quite easy to learn how to tie the knots. However, consider this process with all carefulness and accuracy, since as Oscar Wild stated that «properly tied knot on the tie is the first true step in your life» and many will agree to that now.
