Ties And Suits
Working with neckties is extremely an issue of individual taste, but in conservative expressions there are some essential guiding principle. Ties should constantly be darker when compared to the wearer's shirt. The background color of the tie should not be the similar as that of the shirt, while the foreground of the tie should have the color of the shirt and thus "pick up" on the color of the shirt. Ideally, the tie should also incorporate the color of the suit in the same way. Normally, simple or subdued pattern are chosen for traditional dress.
In modern times however, it has become fashionable to match the necktie color with the shirt or even wearing a lighter colored tie with a darker shirt, generally during formal occasion. A few of the most common knots are the Half-Windsor, the Windsor, Four-in-hand and the Shelby or Pratt. A Four-in-hand, Half-Windsor, or Windsor is usually the most suitable with a tailored suit. Once correctly knotted and arranged, the bottom of the tie must just touch the top of the belt buckle. The thin end should not widen below the wide end.
It has become stylish to wear a suit with no tie and with an unlock necked shirt amongst young men.
