TIES

ARE YOU TYING THE PERFECT KNOT?


How many mornings have you wasted wrestling the silk demon that refuses to settle down? Tie times can be quite trying especially when one is pressed for time and little or no knowledge on how to handle the garment. A peek into the making of this garment:
 

Region and meaning


The stripes usually run from top left to bottom right (from heart to sword) in English ties. With Americans the slant is diagonally opposite, with stripes running from right to left. Regimental or 'repp' ties spoke of allegiances or memberships to specific organizations.
 

Selecting A Silken Tie


If you are going in for a silken tie, remember that you are paying for the material and double check its quality.
• Pinch the tie gently to check the thickness of the material, remember it is the silk and not the lining that must be thick.
• The silk must have weight and be smooth, anything else is a compromise. Hand sewn ties are much better than their machine-made cousins.
• Ensure that tie won't twist around to display its label. Allow the garment to dangle mid air by holding it by its narrow end and raising it high.
• If it flips back, replace it, this is poor quality workmanship. The garment must stay stiff.
• The colors of your tie should blend well with your skin tone and eye color as well as the jacket suit you are planning to team it with. So carry your suit jacket along with  you while shopping for a new tie.
• Find a pattern that is interesting and tasteful.

Check if the tie looks good on you. Now-a-days most stores allow customers to try on ties.
