In these days of COVID-19 social limitations and working from home, a lot of men’s formal clothes aren’t being used nearly as much as they used to be. Those wearing it don’t have nearly as many occasions to dress up, nor do they have to dress up on nearly as many occasions like work, as in the past. The difference with this latest turn on men’s formal fashion, though, especially the casual work look, is that it looks to be here to stay. That makes men’s formal clothes ideal for purging, and refashioning if you were into that trend.
Liven Up Boring Ties with Eldredge, Trinity and Other Knots
If you don’t wear ties, you probably know someone who does. Challenge yourself and/or them to do what I’m doing here by sporting an interesting, different kind of knot and liven up the drudgery of boring ties!
Neckties… such an irony. So formal, yet so banal. You wear it to show respect and be respectful of an event and/or group of people. Yet, you just grab one that, for the most part, looks like one anyone else grabbed off the same shelf. Lots of solids, stripes, mostly muted colour palette. However, if you go outside of this most generic of dress codes, you might be flagged for being disrespectful, attention attracting, and so on.
So what’s a man (or woman) to do with his ties so as knot to look so boring? (pun intended)
