If you are considering a loved one a neck tie but are not sure of what and where to shop; you are reading just the article. Read on to find out how to shop for a neck tie and how to ensure that you end up paying a price that matches your pick perfectly.
When you are going to purchase a neck tie, it is important to note that it is worth buying a neck tie that has a higher price tag rather than going for a low quality one just to save on some money. It is always worth investing in quality than getting a number of neck ties that are of very low quality. High quality ties tend to match or even better a lesser quality suit; at the same time a low quality neck tie can end up damaging the overall look of a high quality suit!
Give the material of the tie an intent look. This is because the best neck ties are made from 100% silk. Feel the fabric to ensure you are not getting a raw deal and you are putting your money where it is due. In case you are unable to identify 100% silk then you can call somebody you can rely on to help you identify pure silk.
Good ties usually have an angle of 45 degrees. Test the angle of the tie by holding the tie out in front of you, hold it while you are gripping the narrow end. One with the proper angle should make a twist.
Good quality neck ties are resilient and retain their shape easily. You can test for resilience by tugging the tie gently at both ends and give it time to see whether it will return to its original shape or not.
How does the tie hang? You can simply check this by holding it up at its straight midpoint and if it does not hang in a straight line then the outside fabric may be bound tightly within its lining and thus this cannot be a good tie.
Consider your outfit when looking for the right neck tie. The tie you want should match the outfit that you will wear it with. Try the tie with a shirt at the store that is almost similar to the one you will be wearing to assess its length and width.
I am sure with all these tips, buying a neck tie won’t be such a trying hunt anymore!
