A great tie finds power in conservatism: instantly balancing a formal look with a flash of personal style and character. Classic slim-cut wool flannel and styles flatter casual dress codes, while patterned interpretations in collegiate stripes and checks add depth to modish tailoring. Jaunty embroidered embellishments touch upon eclectic aesthetics, and bold, imaginative motifs rendered in opulent silks act as eye-catching anchors to muted garb.
