Gap Striped Wool Tie – $24.50
Wearing a necktie with jeans is tough. 90% of the time it just doesn’t look right. Wearing a necktie to a party, function, or meeting that’s supposed to be a casual event can be just as difficult. You don’t want to be the guy who shows up with the business tie on, when everyone else is open collared or wearing sweaters.
But a thin wool tie with a slight pattern in those exact situations will look neither inappropriate, or bland.
Dark Jeans, a tucked in slightly rumpled shirt, and a mole-hair blazer? Perfect. Wearing a business suit that you want to ease back on the formality with? Ditch the silk tie and go with a wool one just like this.
The tie should be thin but not super skinny, and your best bet is a four in hand. Leaving the top button unbuttoned and your collar loosened is your call.
