The knot must be tight
The knot is the fundamental passage, although it is the last one. It must be properly tightened because: the worst of mistakes is wearing a tie knotted badly. It is not important the type of knot you want to do but it is well executed and that the two blades are at the same height to a finger from the belt and, if like, there is a dimple right under the knot, which gives creativity, and prevents the knot from loosening.
Not too long nor too short
The length and the width are fundamental. The length is determined by the way in which the knot is created and that it never goes below the belt, the width must also be determined. The ideal one has an 8 cm blade. The measures are important especially under the knot because it is the part that stands out most ‘when you close the jacket.
Sober colors, please
Dress, shirt and tie must be combined harmoniously, making a play of colors but always sparingly. It is a good rule to take into account various mixes, the burgundy tie can be worn with either a blue or gray suit, blue is suitable for the gray suit, while with brown you can combine a blue dress. the sober colors avoiding the red in the evening, unless expressly requested.
Go with fantasy
In formal situations, you can choose micro designs or false ones. in the business it is better to opt for a geometric pattern or a printed English silk weft, which maintains a discreet profile. For a ceremonies tip on something more polished, but the must are always the blue and white ties, beautiful in the evening on the shirt white, yet sober and elegant at the same time.
