Ties are back

I wish guys would dress up a little more thesedays, especially at workplace. Some guys at my work take casual dressing a little too far. My biggest pet peeve is guys wearing flip flips in the summer with invisibly dirty toes nails and heels. I'm glad my guy has to dress business casual on his job because it does make him look more put-together and handsome, even though he whines about not being comfortable and jumps out of his "uniform" right after he gets home. It's good to see that after years of being out, the necktie is in. Tie sales among young men from age 18 to 34 have jumped up quite a bit. It's not your father's tie. "It may be made of wool, cashmere, silk knit or glove leather; cut a pointedly skinny two-and-a-half inches wide; woven in plaid or printed with an unorthodox pattern of skulls with bunny ears. It may boast a trendy label like Alexander Olch or Band of Outsiders. Slightly offbeat in a laid-back way — the Wes Anderson of the accessory world — the youthful tie is giving the old dress code a much-needed shot in the neck." What do you think of this new change? Do you like it when your beau puts on a stylish tie?
