A neck tie is the most important piece of clothing accessory in a man’s wardrobe. A neck tie speaks loud about your personality and complements dressing style. It is mainly worn with formal clothing, like sleeved shirts and trousers. If purchased unproperly, it’ll just be a rope trap around the neck. Listed below are some useful tips for choosing a tie: Carry along your suit, shirt or jacket while going to buy a tie. Just try the tie to see whether its color, pattern or texture goes well with your clothes or not. Closely examine the quality of a tie. Make sure that it does not have any lose threads. Ensure that the tie must not be visible from the back side of the shirt’s collar. The entire length of the tie must neither be very long nor too short. Always go for a tie that is cut on the bias. In simple words, it is cut across the threads of the cloth, diagonally. To examine if a tie is cut on the bias or not, just hold it from its narrow end, in the air. If the tie hangs down straight, it is cut on the bias. You must not buy it if it turns around in the air. Last, the material must be strong and on the other hand, coarse enough so as to make and hold a sleek and strong knot. Girlfriends and wives, have a nice try ! dress up your men.

Good information! I usually go buy a tie for my boyfriend with a guy friend and I would ask for his opinion and mix mine together and pick the best one! I think that works because my boyfriend likes to get ties from me *laughs*.
