Hot Young Ties
The men of Gossip Girl are rarely seen without being dressed to the nine’s, which of course means matching ties. It just goes to show how the younger men are taking tie styles and making them hip and cool again.

Suited Up
How I Met Your Mother’s Barney Stinson is never seen without a suit and tie. Anything less, he considers sloppy, unprofessional, and just not cool. His frequent catch phrase encourages friends to get their ties as well with a call to, “Suit up!” Recently, he’s had to wear a novelty necktie as part of a bet, which he’s never seen without.

Singing the Praises
The boys and men of Glee often dress up for performances in matching ties, but also some of the smarter dressed students at the fictional William McKinley High School will wear a dandy necktie or bow tie to class as well.

So long as we?re seeing ties on the small screens, we’ll be sure to count them as being hot and popular choices for young men as well as business professionals. How do you keep in fashion?

  • Painting class is a great way to impress people, because honestly, who wears a tie to painting class? It’s an instant conversation starter and new way to make new friends.
  • Magic, because a great magician is never seen without his magician’s suit which of course includes a tie. (Just like Barney on How I Met Your Mother, tie aficionado and magician!)
  • Card games are a great place to wear a tie. You’ll intimidate the competition with your professional attire and dress.

None of these hobbies doing it for you? How about these slightly more unique hobby ideas:

Neck Tie Collecting – How many ties can a person have? It’s not just about quantity; it’s also the type and quality of ties that make a collection worthwhile. Create goals like obtaining all the colors of the rainbow in ties.

Fancy cooking - Have you already mastered cooking and baking? It’s time to start showing off your talents and entertaining in a big way. Invite everyone over in their best threads so you can wear your tie while enjoying your delicious meals.

What hobbies will you pick up this month? Ties or more?

Whenever you do decide to celebrate Opposite Day, feel free to wear the exact opposite tie that you regular would.

  • Going to work? Find your most wacky novelty tie and wear it over your favorite graphic tee shirt for a very formal look.
  • Switch ties with your son. While you’re borrowing one of his cute boys ties, see if you can borrow one of his plastic lunch pails for the day too!

*Disclaimer – The answer is of course, that boys will wear boys ties. Mens silk ties are simply too long for kids to wear, even on opposite day!
