Every man should own at least 5 neckties. Although small, a necktie completes your outfit and transforms what is otherwise a casual look into something that is classy and smart. Whether you are headed for the office or a party, a necktie is definitely an essential item.
Don’t be fooled: first impressions count and your necktie is the first item people notice on you. Therefore, it is vital that you select the right one. There are various necktie styles: from the super skinny to the broad necktie and they come in a wide range of colors and patterns.
Something with a simple design is a great choice for both the office and any formal occasion. A perfect example of this is Woods Men’s Neck Tie which is inspired by Alberta, Canada’s beautiful, natural mountains and trees. The teal and blue patterning against the white background is the ideal necktie design for those who love a classy, yet understated look.
While unique necktie patterns are certainly a quirky and fun way to bring a bit of creativity into your formal wardrobe, care should always be taken to ensure that these patterns and designs are not too “loud” or bold. This look could come across as brash or unprofessional: definitely not attractive at all!
Different ties come in different fabrics. Silk is the ideal fabric for all occasions. However, you may want to consider switching to a wool necktie during the winter months when wearing heavier suits.
In terms of must-have neckties, every man should have various key neckties in his wardrobe such as the following: a solid, black necktie, a pin-dot necktie, a club tie, a skinny/thin necktie, a wide necktie and a necktie with a pattern or design on it (such as the Woods Men’s Neck Tie).
