A necktie is supposed to help make you appear put together and dapper, but there are many faux pas people make when wearing a necktie. Here are common mistakes many men make when wearing a necktie, and how to avoid them:

  • Poorly tied: A poorly tied necktie is not excusable. When you don’t properly tie your tie, you look sloppy and not put together. Clip-on ties and zipper ties always have the perfect knot, and can ensure your tie looks great every day. If you struggle with tying the perfect knot, why not make the switch?
  • The too short necktie: At NecktieEmporium.com, we carry a variety of different length neckties for the tall man and the short. The perfect tie should hit just above the belt, and not be any higher or lower. Avoid the poorly sized tie by shopping Necktie Emporium.
  • Clashing colors: Mixing patterns is an art and can be done, but there are certain things that do not work together! Always stick with neutrals and compatible colors when trying to think outside of the box when getting dressed.
  • Wrinkled or stained neckties: Do we really have to address why this should be avoided?
  • Wrong width: Some outfits look just plain bad with the wrong width tie. We carry a selection of different widths for every man.
  • The wrong tie for the occasion: Wearing an informal tie to a formal event or vice versa is a huge faux pas.

Ties = More Money?

Did you know that men who wear neckties every day often bring home more money than those who do not? What successful businessman do you see without a necktie? What movie or television show depicts top paying jobs without showing a man in a tie?

Men who wear neckties regularly are more likely to make more money. Careers like doctor, lawyer, investment banker, and other popular professional careers often have a dress code that require employees to wear a necktie and suit. These jobs are some of the most high paying careers you can get into. Lower income jobs don’t typically require men to wear a necktie, but some do require a dress code. We’ve talked about how the necktie symbolizes power and helps people perceive you as a professional, which translates to the income of the man who is often seen wearing a tie.

Of course, many successfully wealthy people don’t wear a necktie. However, a larger percentage are often regular necktie wearers. When you interview for a professional job, you wear a necktie, and when you get the job you wear a necktie, which makes us confidently think that any successful venture starts with a necktie! Let NecktieEmporium.com help build your career and professional wardrobe today!

  • Double Breasted Jackets: Popular during the 30s, the double breasted jacket screams vintage gentleman.
  • Cuff Links: Add some pep to your overall look with a beautiful pair of cuff links. Formal, unique, and handsome, snag a pair that can be worn with any look.
