66 Necktie Necessities

From Molecular Ties to Pasta Bow Ties, Neck Fashion is at its Most Chic

— April 4, 2013 — Fashion
Men have been using neckties practically since traditional formal wear has been around and after looking at this list of necktie nuances, I think you’ll agree that we’re now truly living in an age of neck fashion.

From feathered bow ties to USB-accommodating neck ties, these tie variations infuse everything from technology to high fashion in their designs. The interesting thing about these combination pieces is that they are advancing the functions of neck wear while also doing incredible things for the visual appeal of neck fashion, too.

With the advent of the Internet and fashion trends becoming increasingly integrated and blurred, these many inventive tutorials and how to videos showing anyone how to jazz up their neck wear are among just some of the neck line gems featured on this list.
