I say to avoid squares with tie patterns because: (1) you don't need many squares (I have fifty and wear only five of them), and (2) they are very limiting to what sorts of ties pair well.
But that is not to say it cannot be done successfully. If you're wearing a dotted tie, just make sure you don't wear it with dot-type patterned tie. The problem a ton of ties so patterned (for example, anything with little floral medallion pattern counts, as they are essentially dots). Instead, try a striped or solid tie.
Geez, don't tell the Hobers.
Great reading Foo- seriously, u should team with Vox and send a manuscript to Harper Collins- your words, Vox pics
