A Quality tie made from three pieces of fabric, while a cheaper one will be made from only two. It should have a slip stitch and a bar tack to keep the ends of thr slip stitch from separating.
  • Pick the right size

Your tie should hits the top of your belt buckle and measures between 2¼ and 4 inches (5.5cm - 10cm) wide. For a classic look, choose a width that similar to that of your jacket’s lapel. Your tie should not be too loose or too tight. It should fit well around your neck

Wear a tie that has the colors of your suit and shirt as well as at least one other color to provide an accent. For a more formal occasion, wear a solid colored tie that’s darker than your shirt. A black tie goes with everything.
  • Your complexion matters

If you are dark complexion then choose a bright tie and a dr\ark tie if your are light in complexion. f your hair and skin tone contrast, wear a tie that contrasts with your skin tone.
  • Match patterns.

If you must wear a tie with patterns pic one that complements your outfit. If your shirt’s pattern is pronounced, choose a subtle tie. The smaller the dot on your tie, the more formal the tie is; the bigger the clownier.
Remember to stay classy.
