Bow Ties


If men want to go for a traditional look then they can go for a bow tie by selecting the best one that fits the occasion perfectly. 

But when you are making the selection of a bow tie you should select such a color which suits the occasion i.e. you can select black for the formal occasion and can select pink or some similar color for informal wear. Bow ties are made from materials like velvet, silk and polyester. When selecting a bow tie the first thing you have to keep in mind is the color. For formal occasions black color bow ties are appropriate and for less formal occasions you can choose pink or a tie with polka dots.


(It is true to say that a man�s formal look is not right if he is not wearing a tie|A man is not completely dressed formally if he is not wearing a good neck tie}. Mens ties are highly visible by others are one of the first things that are noticed when walking into a room. If a tie is chosen correctly it will draw attention to the rest of his clothes and make him stand out in a crowd.

Tie colors are very much a personal choice. Having said that it is no good just choosing any color and you need to give consideration to other factors before making your final choice of color. Your selection of tie needs to be either a complement to your clothes or a contrast to them. For example you can choose a light colored tie to contrast with a dark colored shirt or a darkly colored tie which will contrast well with a light colored shirt. It is possible to select a tie that is the same color as your shirt but this is not always easy as one needs to be a slightly darker color than the other. If you want to go for the same color then buying an already matched shirt and tie set is a good option. If you are going to attend a special function then there may be rules and protocols about the type of tie that you can wear so be aware of this.


There are a lot of ties with patterns on them available but caution is required when choosing these. If some of your other garments have patterns like your shirt or maybe even your jacket or pants then it is best to go for a tie with a solid color. Trying to match one pattern with another can really be difficult and it can end up looking pretty stupid. While matched pattern shirt and tie combinations are available they can look strange so just go for a solid color neck tie. Have fun searching for a great bow tie or ordinary neck tie.
