Ties aren’t everyone’s thing, but with patterns as cool as these, it would be difficult to resist wearing a tie even if you avoided them like the plague so far. Any worry you might have – that a tie might make you seem uptight, or too conservative, or too formal – should just go down the drain. In fact, if we were you, we’d worry about wearing such a tie in a too formal environment. Seriously, if you work in a bank, don’t wear these ties to the office without the explicit permission of your supervisor! But other than that, feel free to wear them anywhere and with almost anything else (yes, even a short-sleeved shirt plus jeans and trainers).
