Brian S replied to Raphael Friedman's discussion Ties in a non-tie world
"Am not a huge fan of ties, but, like you used to, I wear them for work. Best advice is: whatever the main colour of the shirt is, wear it with a tie where that colour is present but in a minor way. I have a checked shirt with several colours in…"
