FAQs About Ties
What is the best width for a necktie?
Each person is different so the best width for a necktie can vary wildly and is based on the size of the tie and of course the preferences of the person purchasing the tie. Some people prefer skinny ties while others prefer something that is much wider. A smaller framed man should probably stick with a tie that is 2.8 inches in width or below while a taller, larger man can get away with 3.25 inches in width or even a wider tie.
Can you buy ties online?
Yes, there are several necktie companies and retailers that offer ties for sale across the internet. They are delivered right to your door which makes it nice, easy, and quick to shop from the online tie stores.
What are expensive ties made of?
Ties made of pure silk tend to be the most expensive to purchase. A silk tie offers the most polished look if it is paired for the right suit and the touch and feel is amazing. Silk ties are offered by several different tie designers and while some are created from silk mixed with other materials, a tie made of 100 percent silk is going to cost quite a bit more to purchase than the cheaper alternatives.
