Ties.com GIVEAWAY: Three Spring/Summer 2011 Ready Skinny Ties
April 25, 2011 2 Comments
Tom Julian, consumer trend expert and author of the Nordstrom Guide to Men’s Style believes that the tie has become the new modern accessory. One of the biggest menswear shifts of the past few years has been the pairing of the skinny tie “one part geek chic and one part sportswear” with cardigans, jean jackets, sports coats, and even biker jackets. The check/plaid tie in particular started appearing on the runways in 2007. It eventually worked its way up to many of the must-have lists of the FW10 season and continues into SS11.
Guys typically hate wearing ties, but why? The psychoanalysts would probably blame our association of the tie with stressful job interviews, sales presentations, private schools, and for some, work in general. Perhaps this negative association with the tie has turned guys off its potential as a casual accessory – but it shouldn’t. The skinny tie makes your outfit look more unique, more polished, sophisticated and helps you stand out in a crowd. Casual skinny ties and funky bow ties give you a shot of personal style.
