Throughout time, men’s style become more relaxed, and the widespread wearing of ties became a thing of the past, or something required for only formal events. However, now more and more men are once again introducing this masculine accessory back into their wardrobe. Whether opting for an easy men’s clip on tie, or the classic do it yourself, wearing a tie can help people perceive you as more of a gentleman and help you achieve a more cohesive look overall.
