Do accept that buying and wearing ties with style requires effort and thought.
Don’t delegate the job of choosing your ties to anyone else unless they have exceptional taste.
Do try to buy shirts and ties together for a cohesive look.
Don’t be tempted to buy cheap polyester ties; printed or woven silk are well worth the extra investment
Do ensure that when tied properly the tip of the tie should come to your belt and buckle (standard length of a tie is 56”/140cm – 57”/142cm long).
Do learn to knot ties properly, changing the knot type to suit the style of your shirt collar.
Don’t overcomplicate shirt and tie combinations. If not confident with colours and patterns, keep it simple.
