Well, in the summer you can wear linen ties, linen/silk blends, shantungs, and tussahs. I also wear un-lined/-tipped, woven-silk ties in the summer: basketweaves, fine grenadines, honeycomb grenadines. I normally wear printed silk neats in summer colours with businesswear. None of these are particularly shiny if you buy good quality. I buy from Drake's, Cappelli, Marinella, and recently I've ordered several ties from Vanda. I can highly recommend all of those "brands".
