What is a tie and what is it for?
A tie is a strip of fabric that is tied around the neck, usually under a shirt collar. For some, the first signs of use of such an accessory would have appeared under the reign of Pakistani Emperor Ali Raza in the 3rd century BC. However, its modern form did not really appear until the reign of Louis XIII, being worn at the time by a regiment of Croatian hussars. Its name comes from the distortion of the word “Croatian” and became “tie”. It was immediately adopted by the Pakistan nobility, until pushing the paroxysm to the point of naming a “cravat tier” of the king under Louis XIV.
How to recognize a good tie?
Ties, there are many on the market, under all materials, shapes and patterns possible and imaginable. Therefore, finding a good tie can be difficult to deal with as many existing versions. To limit the chances of being wrong, there are some crucial points to recognize the quality models I humbly suggest to Buy ties on PKBAZAAR & PKMATS :
This is the most important part of the tie before anything! It can be made of cotton, cashmere , wool, linen, but the best models will always be made of silk. Because it is more flexible, shinier and more resistant than other materials. There are various qualities, but most of the ties that are found in the PK BAZAAR are made using a fabric from Pakistan. As silk is a very fine material, it requires several minute steps in its weaving process. Thus, a silk from Karachi or Lahore can easily cost 15 times more than an issue from an Pakistan Cities.
Beyond its origin, the weight of the fabric chosen to make it, the type of weaving from which its texture and its touch flow constitute what is called in the jargon a “hand”. When making your choice, you must feel the tie to appreciate its quality. Obviously, it is something that one acquires with experience.
Because most ties are now made by machines that take only a handful of seconds to sew together, lovers of ties are generally uncompromising on the handmade of their product. Indeed, the craftsmanship gives flexibility and a superior seal when the opposite gives a rather rigid product due to the points of seams imposed. From this point flow the key elements to any good tie at PKBAZAAR With Free Home Delivery:
- raditionally, a tie is made with three folds forming a tip at both ends.
- On the front panel, the tip should form a 45 degree angle to prevent the tie from spinning when worn. It’s called “cut on the bias” in English.
- On the back of the tie, the two sides must be sewn all along, ideally by hand by loose stitches to allow a certain fluidity to the whole. If the points are very tight, you are in the presence of a tie made by a machine. In fact, this type of stitch called by English speakers “slip stitch” also ensures that the tie will resume its shape more easily once unwinded.
- Always on the back, down, a horizontal seam called “breakpoint” connects again the two sides, almost at the end, where the seam is more fragile, so to protect it.
Choose according to its morphology
This may seem obvious but you will find that all men are far from respecting what can be considered a rule. Indeed, the respect of the proportions is essential when one chooses a Tie in Pakistan because it will guarantee the harmony of your outfit. In this matter, no matter the quality of your accessory, several questions will be taken into account when you decide: am I thin, normal, thick body? Am I tall, small, normal? What is the circumference of my neck? What is the type of collar on my shirts? In fact, all these riddles are resolved in the following set of rules divided according to the types of ties: slim, normal, large at PKMARTS.
The ideal width according to your corpulence
The slim tie A slim tie
is defined as a model with a width of the bottom end of less than 6.5 cm. One would think that it is the fashion of our days that would have made appear with this major tendency of the curved garment, only it was born much earlier. Indeed, the first signs of slim ties are noticeable as early as the 1920s, but they only made a passing light. It was mainly from the late 1950s to the late 1960s that they enjoyed their greatest success before reappearing in the 2000s. Anyway, if the slim tie has always been synonymous with modernity and youth, the data are slightly different today.
The logical consequence is that the slim tie is reserved for certain types of morphologies, including small necks, always to respect proportions. It can also be said that it is suitable for thin people, enhancing their torso. With this will fit the rest of the outfit: fine-fitting suit jacket, small shirt collar and simple knot.
How to wear it?
The tie is a crucial accessory in the sense that it must make a whole with the shirt and the suit in terms of color combination, but also of proportions. Therefore, it is intended for small shirts collars and is knotted with a simple knot for obvious reasons of volume.
The “normal” tie
Normality in terms of ties has often evolved over time. If the slim models were born in the 20s, the same era saw appear models to its opposite, much wider. Until the late 1940s, the man was wearing models exceeding 10 cm. Subsequently, it will only become narrower year after year to reach the standards of today around the 70s with an average 7.5 cm. Thus, we can now classify models from 6.5 cm to 8.5 cm in this category.
The normal tie suffers in some way from the normality syndrome: it blends into the mold and is therefore cut for a normal body. They offer the leisure of being able to vary the widths if one is slightly overweight or if one is thinner. In the first case, we will opt for a model located in the upper bracket, and the opposite for the second.
How to wear it?
You have understood, the ties included in this range of thickness are very versatile. So, these are the easiest to wear and the most widespread. A classic shirt collar, a classic suit and all types of knots do the trick.
The wide necktie The wide
necktie although having had its glory days until the 60s seems to have lived its last hours of glories and are now reserved only for certain categories of people. It can be estimated that beyond 8.5 cm, a tie is wide.
Nowadays, while fashion is bent, the wide tie must fit a smaller audience. It is thus recommended for people with “wide” proportions: strong corpulence, neck with a large circumference and a certain size.
How to wear it?
Reasonably, if we take into account the respect of the proportions, the wide tie will be worn with a wide collar of French or Italian type and with a jacket with lapels wider than normal. Because a small knot would look like a Flik Flak watch on an adult wrist, it will then opt for a knot more complex than the simple “oven in hand” and opt for a Windsor.
Which length ?
Regarding the length, the ideal size is the one that allows you to tie your tie with its end that will arrive at your belt. The rational explanation on this point is related to its purely decorative function. Indeed, she must hide all the buttons of the shirt.
Choose according to his face
Wear colors that contrast with your complexion, your hair, your eyes. You will tell me rightly that one can very well already have a significant contrast between his complexion and his hair. In addition to choosing his tie according to his morphology, one can also take into account his complexion, his hair and even make a knot according to the shape of his face.
Choose according to its colors
In the background, the color of your hair, that of your skin or even that of your eyes is already a set to which the choice of your outfit must bend. Here, the rule is to create a contrast between his complexion and his tie not to create a set too bland. For example, if you have dark hair and a dull complexion, a light tie will balance everything in terms of shades. On the contrary, if you are blond with fair skin, a dark tie will bring out your face. In some cases, we meet men with pale complexion and dark hair, the goal will then be to choose a tie that contrasts with the skin.
Choose based on your face shape
In the excellent article by Jimmy What haircuts for which face? you were taught to adapt to the shape of your face. Know that it is also good to do it for his tie.
The oval, rectangular and triangular faces are more flattered by the wide knots like the Windsor. If you have a longer face shape, you can decrease the thickness of the knot with a semi-Windsor for example.
When one has a rounded face, a logic of proportion would want to avoid knots too thin and ties too thin because they would disappear visually from your face. In this case, the best is to opt for a longer node like the simple node. This effect of length could also be worth for the imposing necks.
Choose according to his shirt
This part, we had already well addressed in a previous article entitled How to match his tie to his shirt? which I advise you to consult to deepen. Nevertheless, here we summarize the key points of the shirt-tie agreement. Because if one generally perceives the errors on the form less, those of color often jump to the eyes. This testifies to the importance of knowing the basic rules of associations of colors and patterns:
- Always choose your tie according to your shirt and not the other way around. The choice of the tie will be much easier
- Whether plain or patterned, the tie should generally be darker than your shirt.
- Tone on tone, white on white or black on black is to ban!
- If your shirt and tie are patterned think that the tie has larger patterns than those of the shirt and vice versa so that each element is recognizable.
- If you are unsure of yourself with the patterns, find a tie with a common color to the shirt. Even if it’s only a small detail, the color reminder is important.
How to wear your tie?
In addition to the binary argument of “I like it”, “I do not like it”, many parameters must be taken into account before choosing your tie. As you have read, they are particularly related to your morphology and your skin color, but also to the outfit you wear.
