As men, we own ties. Some of us enjoy wearing them. The majority of us even know how to tie our own ties. But many of us don’t really know our ties. The second you put a tie on, it becomes a part of your personality so it makes sense to know a bit about what makes it complement your shirt and slacks so well.
This infographic I came across dissects a tie, pointing out the key elements of it. True, on a regular day, I’ll never mention the shell of a tie but you never know who you may meet or what conversations you may have that could lead to opportunities. It’s always better to know a lot about a few things, a little about all/most things, and nothing about nothing.
