>Really love ties; love the way they look, love how they feel when wearing them, love having that little extra accessory to play around with.
>TFW you never get to wear them because everyone in business is getting rid of ties, claiming they're stuffy and old fashioned, no one wears them casually anymore and wearing a tie looks strange as fuck.
Are ties going to be like fedoras are nowadays?
Men used to dress like pic related; No problem, just another day.
Now they're literally afraid to wear neckties in fear of being called stuffy. Marxism in action, gents. Soon we'll all wear some kind of homgenised unisex trashbag.

I haven't noticed this. And ties are not going to be fedoras in our lifetime at least
I could see how you'd think that from just the picture. You need to see the entire suit in the proper lighting + the actual fit.
Here's a few I have from a while back.
Do you have to ask everyone's opinion before you wear a coloured T-shirt?
>Will I look old-fashioned or fedora if I wear these sneakers? Someone please tell me what's acceptable, I'm so insecure.
E. Marinella tie (I think) together with Boglioli jacket.
Tie in a navy shantung silk, works with pretty much everything.
You're in the wrong industry OP. Hipster bullshit startups are killing off suits as much as they can because their employees can't be trusted to dress themselves.
High end consulting, law, and financial business world still expect proper business attire, and failure to dress proper is a death sentence.
Law field is sadly a little stifling, I'm still getting started and young associates are expected to wear conservative colours and style. No fancy socks, bright ties, or patterned suits for me.

Depends on the firm and the context. I know some firms that roll like that regularly, whereas others enforce a much stricter dress code.
Most firms I know of are incredibly laissez faire if you aren't meeting clients, though. Especially if you're making goddamn money.
Don't wear anything glenchecked, monostriped, or anything with little motifs on it. Avoid washed out colours like beige and light grey, but also throw out anything pastell and overly bright.
Two navy, two reds, a discreet green/grey and a black one for funerals are all the ties you really need. Use your pocket square if you're gonna fuck around with colours and shapes.
Maybe he's talking about a hunting shop, not your average American hickville gun shop full of red state flags 'n shit, where you get a free cheeseburger for every cart of ammo you buy.
In all of the funerals I've been to only old men wear black suits and black ties. Everyone else just dresses their best. Wearing black at funerals just seems antiquated now, at least it does coming from where I am in the States. I don't know if you're in Europe or something.
