Men who like to dress a bit formal but stay active should look to Vivienne Westwood’s Fall/Winter 2009 for inspiration.
In addition to the couture knee pads, Westwood introduced an innovative tie design that solves the problem of your tie smacking you in the face if you start running or a breeze passes by.
Westwood’s men’s fall 2009 runway at Milan fashion week featured two models with creative ties that are tied to the button of the shirt. While they are not your classic formal tie look, they bring a bit of fun into formal wear.
I know you can use a tie clip, but I think they are tacky and it’s another accessory to buy and keep around.
