Differnt types of tie's

The right men's tie can be the polish that gives an outfit the perfect shine. But with an unlimited number of colors, patterns, and fabrics to choose from the gentleman can be left with a difficult choice of which one to choose. For many men, the solution is to avoid variety and stick with a small collection of solid colored or simple striped ties. While there is nothing wrong with traditionalist solids and stripes, the multitude of options available makes a strong case for injecting some variety into the wardrobe.

The Solid Tie
  • Looking at color and sample options, the most basic is the solid.
  • A solid tie is easiest to match; one simply selects a tie that coordinates with one of the colors in the suit or shirt.
  • However, within this simplicity lies the danger of over coordination, the faux pas of looking too matched or having put too much time into the outfit. Avoid a blue tie and blue shirt with a navy blue suit;

The Striped Tie :
  • Equally classic is the men's stripe tie, which is easily matched with solid suits and shirts by selecting a stripe that complements.
  • In the case of a patterned jacket, shirt, or both, the key is to maintain colors that complement and attend to diversity of scale.
  • A finely pinstriped suit calls for a boldly striped tie, while a strong checked shirt would be better suited by a more subdued stripe.

The Plaid Tie :
  • Harder to find, this choice of neckwear is a great way to embolden an otherwise plain outfit.
  • Creating the illusion of dimension, this tie will draw attention to itself so do not pair it with an overpowering shirt.
  • Look to pair this tie with solid colored suits and shirts.
Dots, Paisley, and Figure Ties :
  • Polka dots, paisley, and figure – meaning small repeating images such as a university/club/military crest – have become much more common over the years.
  • If kept in good taste, avoiding flamboyant colors and designs, these ties can liven up any solid or striped suit.
  • Such ties are matched to an ensemble by their primary color, with attention paid to avoiding secondary colors that visibly clash with the shirt and suit.
