Even if you have chosen a beautiful pattern with an appropriate color it remains the question of the width of your tie, this is an equally essential point. The width of the tie should be tailored to your overall outfit.
It is necessary to take your figure into account, the tie will have to be wider with a large shoulder span and finer with a narrower shoulder breadth. There is also an elementary rule to choose the width; it must be balanced with the lapel of your vest.
A tie cannot be too narrow or too wide, it must have a width that is suited to the proportions of the collar of your jacket and your shirt.
Always think of the final result, the whole of your outfit.
Likewise, your tie knot must also be proportional to your silhouette.
And a necktie must be nicely knotted. If the knot is not flawless all the effect will be lost.
There are many kinds of tie knots, for example: the Windsor, the Atlantic, the Pratt, the Eldredge, the Trinity, the Military, and so on.
But the simple knot is the most widespread. This is the most used and easiest to make. It matches with most ties and almost all shirt collars. It is perfect for all silhouettes.
What fabric should be chosen? There are so many !
This question is just as important as the choice of color.
Silk remains the fabric par excellence for the most elegant neckties, at the office or for important events. It is a noble and durable fabric.
A silk tie can also be worn for more casual activities if you choose a suitable color or pattern.
Wool is another essential fabric, as well as cotton or linen.
Each of these fabrics has its own characteristics that predispose it to combinations with certain outfits or that associate it with particular moments.
We sometimes forget the beauty of a knitted necktie in relaxed atmospheres or a linen tie on a beautiful summer day.
A difficult choice that depends on various factors, the color of the shirt, the color of the vest, the costume, etc.
In any case it is necessary that the colors harmonize and it is necessary to know if the whole of the outfit must have a certain formalism.
Color reminders are paramount. A dominant color in your tie should have a reminder in another item of your outfit, shirt, jacket, pocket square. Care must be taken to ensure that all colors are harmonious.
To help yourself you can call upon a chromatic circle, which is an ordered representation of colors. It will be necessary to document you a little on the advice in complementary colors, contrasts and hues. If you wish, the Internet will allow you to find many methods about it.
But your good taste and a certain temperance will guide you as well in your choice.
If you look at your combination of colors and that intuitively you realize that you do not like it altogether, then it is not the right combination. If you have no doubt about your color combination, then your choice is good.
It is something that can be seen and felt. People around you will confirm your feeling.
