A luxurious necktie is a vehicle of expression, intent and status. Few, if any accessories, emphasize a gentleman’s penchant for taste and refinement like a tie. With so many choices out there, it can become overwhelmingly difficult to choose one that best suits you.
When assessing the quality of a tie, durability is of paramount importance. The easiest way to refine your options is to stick to natural fibers such as silk, linen and cotton and avoid synthetic ones, such as polyester.
So what qualities should one look for in a luxury tie? Woolen interlining can help significantly in creating that rich, thick knot. Additionally, silk tipping in place of traditional polyester tipping can improve the profile of your tie. Higher quality tie makers typically tip their ties with silk, providing an elegant, finished look. Sub par tie manufacturers sometimes skimp and end up using polyester.
Fret not! To help you get ahead of the game, we have scoured the internet and found our favorite luxury ties, to help you truly elevate your style game.
