How To Be Master Tie A Tie In Just 10 Seconds
Ties may not always be necessary, but they are never out of place or out of style. It’s always about how you rock it — that’s what can elevate your game to the top floor.
“Unless you work in a formal setting or are attending a semi-formal or formal event, ties are often excluded from your daily style,” said menswear blogger Denny Balmaceda.”While I understand they have a more formal association, I rock ties with a button-down and jeans just to hang socially and I think it can be a great look and doesn’t need to be designated for formal or serious settings.”
You hear that? Ties aren’t just for special occasions. They are for pop. They are a conversation piece. They can be a statement or accessory that gives detail. It’s really your choice. Now, a rise in casual office style may have muted the importance of flexing your tie muscles, but it’s now time to rectify that. Just because you’re seeing more tie-free crewneck shirts doesn’t mean you are to pack away your neckties. Actually, you could even think about slipping on a tie as a way to break the rules. Yes, you can be a rebel in a Windsor knot.
“Ties definitely have an important place in today’s menswear landscape,” said Megan Collins, founder of the Style Girlfriend. “As office dress codes continue to get more and more lax, the notion of dressing in a suit and tie can almost feel like a way to break the rules. And trust me, women love a guy who knows the power of wearing a suit for no reason.”
It’s a sad fact that so many guys have learned just a single way to fashion a tie knot when there are so many possibilities for greatness. But these are practical skills, ones that every man should learn, and we can assure you, gentlemen, one knot does not fit all.
