Your tie is one of the most distinct accessory on your outfit. It is a center of attraction as people often notice your ties even before they notice your shirt or how nicely your suit fits. So it is very important to wear good ties and most importantly to take good care of your ties. Here are seven ways to buy a good tie and also take care of it. Come on brothers!

1 BUY A TIE THAT FITS
Buy a tie that fits. If you are not big in size, you will look funny wearing a big tie. It will be more appropriate to wear a slim tie or the not too slim, not too fat ( “in-between”) ones. If you are big in size, any tie would go for you, the slim, the “in-between”or the big ones.

2 QUALITY

I prefer to buy micro fibre ties. I prefer them because they are more durable and they are not too light in weight. You can purchase any kind but just make sure it is good. A quality tie can cover up for a cheap shirt. It is assumed that if you can afford a good tie you can as well afford a good shirt and suit…lol..

3 BLEND

Your tie must blend with your shirt and/or suit. The colors and textures must harmonize. Avoid wearing checked or patterned ties with checked or patterned shirts, especially if they are of different colors. It is preferable to wear patterned ties with plain shirts.

4 THE SHIRT COLLAR

The collar of the shirt determines how big or small the knot will be. If your collar is small, your tie knot should be small so it can seat properly on your neck. If the collar is big, you can afford to have big knots. Generally big knots put me off.

5 UN-KNOT YOUR TIE AFTER EACH USE

Some people leave their ties knotted even after  use. The hang it knotted. Doing that destroys your ties. Dirt accumulate on the knotted area quickly. Always un-knot your ties when not in use.

6 WASHING YOUR TIE

Wash your ties when they are dirty. Some people don’t wash their ties at all. It becomes dirty, smelly and looks old.

7 IRONING YOUR TIES

Always iron your ties with a white handkerchief or any other light material. Avoid using the iron directly on the tie. It will make the material of the tie dull.

Now you know how to take care of your ties. Enjoy the experience…
