Some men seem to have been born with the gift of combining shirt and tie together. They can visualize what a certain combo will look like. These rare individuals can walk to their closet and remove the perfect tie from their tie rack.
Most men are not this way. They stare at their tie rack and eventually decide to wear the same combination day after day just to be safe. Or others just grab a tie and try to pass it off as eccentric. Neither one of these strategies is probably the one you want to fall back on. You need a better game plan than hit or miss.
First get a tie rack that supports at least two dozen ties. Make sure it is a tie rack that can be easily carried out of the closet. Closets typically do not have the best lighting for matching your tie to your outfit.

Gaining an eye for color is often a matter of trial and error, but you must have the opportunity of looking over your options. That is why you must be able to hold the tie up to your respective shirt.
