Glen plaid ties are one of the classic tie motifs. Just as much as polka dots, stripes, houndstooth checks, knits, etc. They are most certainly not wedding ties although they are popular with morning coats. I've got a couple of grey ones, large check and small check, and a couple of large checks in other colors. If you like the monochromatic effect, which is widely espoused here btw, nothing looks better than a plain mid grey suit, white shirt and small/mid size grey check. It's a very subtle and sophisticated look. You just have to be a little careful when you look at your shirt, suit tie combo but surely you have to with most looks apart from a few no brainers like rep stripes with blazers. I haven't got any but the brown/green palette combos worn with tweed suits can look good too. I can't imagine anyone with any pretensions to style not having a couple of glen plaid ties in his drawer.
