Three Tricks On Choosing A Necktie
An authentically qualified necktie must use a lot of hand-sewn skills. For instance, if the exterior fabric is well sewed with its lining, it would make the tie itself very soft and smooth.

The big end of necktie appears to be in a 90-degree angle. It is divided by middle line into two isosceles triangles. If it is not in such a structure, the sense of balance would not exist. The overall aesthetics would be affected badly when tying a knot.
A good necktie is usually long. The standard length is 55 inches or 56 inches (approx. 139.70cm or 142.24cm). The width of tie is also very important for which there is not a rigid index yet, but basically the width of necktie should be same as that of a suit lapel. Presently the standard necktie width refers to the distance of the widest end of necktie. Usually it is 4 inches to 4.5 inches ( about 10.16cm to 11.43cm).
In addition, when it comes to the necktie material, the best fabric is silk because its color is bright but not dazzling. Silk is no doubt the best material whose price is accordingly pretty high. In contrast, polyester is one of chemical fiber fabrics whose texture and drooping style would be comparatively inferior.
