Well guise, i finally decided to buy that suit not too long ago and have since bought more shirts. The two new shirts came with a tie, should i wear the tie?

Usually i leave the top few buttons undone for comfort, i don't wanna look like a medallion man though so tell me what i should do. plawkz

I like ties.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

Don't be dumb. If you are wearing a suit, of course you wear a tie. You don't have to button the top/collar button on your shirt if you know how to wear it, and it doesn't sound like you do. I don't fault you for that, but you need to practice tieing that rascal before you actually have to wear it. I could try to describe my personal favorite tie knot, but you'd probably be better off just learning it on line. Google is your friend. Remember, it's better to be overdressed than underdressed.

And yes, the tie makes the suit. It's the icing on the cake. It's the color and style that sets it all off. It's the one thing that you can choose and control when you have to dress up in that monkey suit. And the chicks dig it, so get with it there.

Dude, a tie with a suit is a terrible idea. You should be ashamed of yourself for even considering it.
Balls.

Suits need ties.

But wear a tie without a suit, and you look like a douchebag.

I can't believe that this is being considered. See my previous edit.

Again, the tie is the one thing that YOU choose. It's the defining accent that YOU control over the ludicrous event of having to wear a suit in the first place. There are some fantastic ties out there, expect to pay $50 for a silk. I have a few Jerry Garcias that are my "go tos" but I imagine that they are outdated now.

It really depends on the look you want. If you want professional, then definitely wear a tie. However, if you want a "younger, sleek look", wear a tight button up shirt with the top buttons unbuttoned.
#20
It depends entirely on the circumstances. If you're at a formal event then wear the tie, but if you're just out then don't. I would consult patrick batemans guide for looking good if I were you. Don't feel like searching for it.

Of course I am. How far do you think you can go in life without knowing how to wear a tie?

Anyway, the windsor knot is bullshit. Totally asymetrical. Makes the knot look loopsided.

Try this:

Drape it around your neck long end on the right, You should have about a foot on the left and several on the right. Take the long end and go over the tail end on the left, and then bring it back out between the two between your neck. Go back around the left end and all the way under both and bring it out from under the right side. Now push it from front to back between the two ends around your neck. Bring it back around under the right end and over everything and then back over the left end. Bring it under the left end and back through the center. Stuff the end though the loop you've created and pull it out., not all at once. Keep some slack in it until you have it adjusted. Tighten it up and keep it neat. You can slide it up and avoid that horrible top botton.

He's already had a threesome with his mother and father.

One more thing... the end of the tie should land somewhere about your beltline. If it's too short or too long, go back and do it again giving appropriate adjustments to the original procedure. There is nothing more idiotic than wearing a tie too short, trust me on this.

LOL. Good for GD. I'm wondering why he wears a tie at all. I mean, if you're not impressing chicks or clients, why ****ing bother with it? I guess the answer to that is that you see him at weddings and funerals.

wear the goddamn tie


YeAH. I've tried to explain that the tie is the IT. If you are wearing a monkey suit, the tie is your own, your expression, your own. It's what defines you, it's the whole suit really. If the OP doesn't understand this, shame on him.

Honestly, if you want to look truly classy, the bowtie or ascot is the only way to go. Anyone can do a diagonally striped piece of silk hanging on their stomach.

Bows and toes, Bitch.

GTFO with this bowtie bullshit. They work for tuxedoes, and that's it. Use some imagination, man.
