I like ties. Women have fashion options in a business setting, where men are limited to blue/black/grey suits. We have ties and shirts to put in a little color. So I'm not losing my ties.

by Anonymousreply 13May 16, 2022 4:13 AM

I don’t think it’s trashy, but it’s just such a tired and played out look. I mean Tom Ford started this jacket with no tie look back in the NINETIES, that’s like 30 years ago. Enough is enough

OP, how old are you?

I'm just curious, and not trying to make fun of you.

But seriously, you must be over 50 because most young guys today don't wear ties. Most of them can barely be bothered to wear a dress shirt.

Everything in today's world is about comfort.

And now with people working from home?

You're lucky if a guy even bothers to wear pants.

Wrong, OP. Ties are pointless and I'm glad they're on the way out. Why should I tie an ornamental silk noose around my neck just because everyone else is doing it? Fuck that shit. People who do stuff for traditions sake are stupid.

R14 Ok and a tie, which has been around for like 300 years is not a tired look?

r14 has the dumbest comment. Tom Ford didn't invent the concept of not wearing a tie. What a crock of fucking shit.

Ties and suits are oppressive to me. It could be my gayness and how I used to be forced to wear them as a kid. It’s like saying women should be expected to wear dresses.

by Anonymousreply 24May 20, 2022 4:01 AM

For me it's not the tie, it's the generally sloppy look that is bothersome. Tuck your shirt is and shave your face. People don't understand why they don't command respect, but how one presents themself is important.

R21: please read carefully what I wrote:

[quote] Tom Ford started this jacket with no tie look back in the NINETIES

No where did I say he ‘invent[ed] the concept of not wearing a tie.’

What I said was he started the trend, meaning he helped popularize this look in the 90s.

If you can’t tell the difference between ‘inventing’ and ‘starting a trend’, then there’s no way I can help you.

Please learn to read carefully before you accused anyone of stupidity. Otherwise it just reflects badly on you.

It is true that Tom Ford helped make the no-tie look popular.

In many industries, someone under the age of 70 wearing a tie to a meeting would call attention to the wearer, which is the last thing you'd want to do--and not in a good way.

Tech, media, advertising--the uniform for any sort of conference or formal meeting is dark jeans or "five pocket pants" a collared shirt and a sport coat, which for many guys seems to be the jacket of the one suit they own.

Even weddings and b'nai mitzvot are much less formal these days

A couple of days ago, I was on the subway (live in NYC) going to work and I noticed several of the young guys were wearing white shirts. Is a white shirt still the favored choice of investment banks and law offices?

I have a couple of beautiful ties for special occasions, like weddings, galas, receptions…

And it‘s always such a relief to take the damn thing off!

So no, OP, some things go out of fashion for a very good reason.

And the shirt Bradley Cooper is wearing doesn’t require a tie because of its design. It doesn’t need a noose to “complete” the look, because this IS the look.

I like wearing a tie and don't mind being one of a few or the only one in a room wearing one. I don't think it makes me a better person. I don't throw on a tie and pair of bluchers to run next door to the grocery store. And I don't care if other men wear a tie or not (there's a certain level of don't-give-a-fuck piss-stained sweat pants that might catch my eye as wrong but I'm not going to upbraid anyone or throw dagger eyes or speak badly about them because of their clothes.
