Evolution of Mens Tie

By Silk Worm Subscribe to RSS | December 7th 2011 | Views:

Mens ties are one item in a man’s wardrobe that has undergone drastic changes through the years. From a cloth worn around the neck to the cravats down to the modern version of the silk tie, it still continues to evolve through today. Mens ties have been brought out in all the colours of the rainbow. Designs also vary from the conservative and sober to the really bizarre.

Making A Perfect Mens Tie

The best handmade neckties are cut to specifications only. Since it is cut across, the tie falls well when it is tied around your neck. This special way of cutting the tie across the material is called cutting on the bias. The seven folds that neckties were subjected to, to give it that extra fullness is no longer done due to lack of skilled craftsmen. Also this raises the price of the silk tie beyond the reach of most people.

Know Your Silk Tie

There are custom made mens ties by designers and there are commercially made ties. The better the quality of the tie, the higher the percentage of wool in the lining. The gold bars that are found when opening the back of the tie determine the thickness of the lining. The greater the number of bars, the thicker the lining. The designer ties and the quality ties have a bar tack to maintain its shape. Also a slip stitch to give it resilience. The slip stitch to assemble a tie was introduced by Joss Langsdorf. The slip stitch ensures the tie maintains its shape when not in use. You can be sure that a tie that gathers when the slip stitch is pulled is a quality tie. Again quality ties use 3 pieces of material to assemble the final product whereas the commercially produced ones use 2 pieces of material. It is important to differentiate between branded high quality silk ties and the more cheaply made ones to justify the price you are paying for it.

Survival Through The Ages

There is no real purpose to wearing a silk tie. It does not keep you warm and its only purpose seems to be to add colour to mens clothing. The browns and creams in a man’s clothing when topped by a brightly hued silk tie adds vitality to his entire personality. Over the years there has been a lot of fine tuning to the occasions when a tie has to be used. While ties can be avoided for casual occasions, it is a must for most formal functions. In fact a black tie occasions denotes an ultra formal occasion.
