Discussing :: The vanishing tie?


Yeah, I reckon a tie for special occasions, but not every day. Guys that wear ties around town every day look boring and stuffy, but for a special occasion they look nice. I used to have to wear one at school so I know how restricting they can feel.


Cannot remember when i last wore a tie, although i do wear a shirt and occasionally a jacket when meeting clients i tend to forgo the tie, no one has ever mentioned it.


bootlace ties were for me not so much now ties can be pretty expensive if you don,t need them for work people probably don,t buy


The only time I think a tie is essential is at funerals. Shows respect. A lot of older men look smarter with ties.


The only time I ever wore a tie was years ago during two weeks work experience at State Insurance. I borrowed a couple from my Dad, I've never owned one myself (not unless you count the gag bow tie I had as a kid that squirted water...) I think they look good in a business or formal dress situation but can't say I'd be to bothered if they disappeared altogether.


Funny this topic came up, I have an interview today and am not going to wear a tie. I probably would have but I can't find it! I still think I can pull it off without one though. What ae your thoughts on ties for interviews?


I'm female and personally am not that big on guys wearing ties for every day use. Different circumstances and careers do call for it though. I think a guy can look just as classy without one, with the right shirt and jacket.


a tie adds a feeling that you're going to win something


Ties are classy but a more casual look is in for most work places now.It seems that the higher up the ladder that you climb, the classier your attire and the more ties you see.
