Since work doesn't allow casual Fridays, I wear a tie instead (hence the title). Today I decided to wear a striped navy tie over a red, white and blue plaid shirt. Everyone has their own style or way of tying ties and what shirts they wear them with. I normally wear striped ties with plain, gingham or plaid shirts and usually use the four-in-hand knot for my tie, keeping the length of the skinny tail the same as the wide tail. How do you match ties and shirts? What are some different ways you like to tie neckties?
