Best Ties We’ve Seen This Month – Top Ten
Obama knows a tie make or break a man’s outfit. Notice how in debates and large scale events he wears a bold red tie, and for more intimate situations or TV appearances, he’ll wear more toned down colours. Of course, a tie isn’t just about the colour – though you might want to look as sharp as Obama.
Here we’ve collected 10 of the best ties we’ve seen this month. From traditional pinstripe ties to cashmere ties, bold prints to more something more dramatic, we think these ties are worth mentioning – much more so than your average work tie.
