It’s always helpful to know where to start when it comes to your menswear collection, whether you’re just getting started, redefining, or restarting it.
One of the most important accessories for a well-dressed guy is a tie. The correct tie can indeed bring your outfit together and enhance your look, whether it’s for a formal event, business, a first date, or simply sprucing up casual wear.
Here I’ll be talking about ten ties that every man should own.
You can never go wrong with a striped navy tie because it is timeless and classic. It’s highly versatile and may be the perfect finishing touch for a monochromatic look, as well as a more distinctive outfit.
When wearing a waistcoat, keep in mind that you don’t need a tie bar because the waistcoat and tie bar serve the same purpose: to keep your tie in place.
Also, don’t remember to unbuttone your bottom button.Red
Red Power Tie
You must have a power tie. An updated spin on the classic look, a well-tailored blue suit with a contrast collar, French cuff shirt, and strong red power tie will undoubtedly show them that you mean business.
I suggest starting with a black or dark charcoal tie if you just have one solid color tie in your collection. Solid ties in brighter colors are expressive and can make a statement, but they’re less versatile than those in a more muted color.
When starting a collection, you should always start with the products that will provide you the most bang for your buck.
Browns are one of my favorite colors since they go with so many various color schemes and go so well with blues and grays.
A pattern tie paired with a striped shirt will definitely do the work when it comes to making a three-piece suit a little less formal.
A burgundy pindot tie, like the striped navy tie from the first look, is classic and versatile. Nothing works together quite like burgundy and brown, and this tie is the ideal complement to a brown tweed and three-piece suit.
Even if you consider your style to be conservative, I believe it is essential to have at least one tie that is a little bolder and more fun.
A vibrant plaid tie will round out your collection and ensure that you’re ready to go whenever you want to add a splash of color to a spring or summer outfit.
A good rule of thumb when dealing with a bold pattern or design is to make the rest of your outfit as plain as possible.
This will keep your look from being too cluttered and will allow you to focus on the intriguing item.
While stripes and patterns can add interest, nothing beats a rough-textured wool tie, especially when it comes to outstanding fall and winter looks.
The thicker fabric is ideal for adding a stylish accent and dressing up even the most gritty pieces, such as a chambray shirt and salvaged denim pants.
Wear a well-fitting navy blazer with a pair of dress boots for a stylish look that goes from day to night.
I recommend that you have at least two knit ties in your collection. Knit ties are sleek, stylish, and exude a stylistic refinement and casual nonchalance.
The skinny part of the tie is normally threaded through the loop on the back of the larger part. I like to let both ends of a knit tie dangle separately, especially when I’m trying for a more casual and laid-back look, and I’m never dissatisfied if the skinny section of the tie is just a little bit longer than the front half of the tie in these situations.
I know I’ve already mentioned a burgundy tie, but nothing beats a burgundy wool knit tie for seasonal versatility. It may effortlessly dress up a casual ensemble while also adding just the perfect bit of flare to a more stylish ensemble.
A black silk or satin bow tie is required for black-tie informal occasions. The black bow tie is the ultimate of elegance and sophistication.
It’s the ultimate mark of a well-dressed gentleman when paired with a pristine white dinner shirt, distinctive velvet blazer, and rounded off with a pair of velvet shoes.
And, let’s face it, we’re all guilty of it. When you undo it at the end of the night, nothing looks cooler.
Whether you choose to start with all 10 of my recommendations or just a few, keep in mind that, with the exception of the black bow ties, all of these ties may be worn in a variety of ways and for a variety of situations.
Always remember to try new things and be a little creative. It’s all about figuring out what works best for you and what you enjoy doing the most.
