There’s a trend to smarten up. Get rid of the casual look. Look smart, professional and focused. Go ahead, throw on a tie. It’s a small thing, but small things are the point. You’ll look and feel the part of a rising professional star. Successful professionals know that small things matter. So if you’re going to wear a tie, wear a good one. Here are three things to consider when buying your next tie.
- Besides color and texture of your necktie, choose a tie that is cut on the bias. When a tie is cut across the threads of the cloth diagonally this is a true bias. Cutting on the true bias takes an amazing amount of fabric for such a small accessory. But if the tie is not cut correctly, it will not flex or wrap properly without the lovely ease that a true bias cut gives.
Ties which are not cut properly have a tendency to turn and not lay flat and straight. To tell if a tie you plan to buy has been cut correctly take the narrow end of the tie and hold it up in the air. If the tie falls straight, the cut is good. If the tie turns, you should not buy it.
- Also make sure the tie does not have any loose threads.
- The width of the narrow part of the tie should be slightly smaller than the height of the collar. The collar should cover the tie completely so that the tie cannot be seen at the back of the collar.
