Ties are one of the most important fashion accessories for men. Unlike ladies where we can use handbags, shoes, jewelry, scarves, smartphone cases, belts, etc, the average man has just a few ways to 'make it pop'. If you reside in a city like Washington, DC then the tie becomes even more important because we're looking for something beyond the standard blue suit fare.
There are lots of basic know-how things to remember about ties but today we're focusing on two telling tie truths: your tie and belt should never meet, and while color and width matter somewhat, the texture of your tie counts even more.
