Tie with logos - tacky?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Today I am wearing a RL tie with tiny little polo logos on it (man on horse, etc.). From afar it appears as though the tie is dotted or something similar. Is this a tacky tie to wear? It is mostly hidden behind a cashmere zip up sweater.

it can almost be seen as a conversational tie I suppose. Just as long as there are no GGs or LVs I think you are fine.

I'd have to see it, but it sounds questionable to me. If they are small, maybe OK. Paul Stuart used to have a tie with polo players riding alligators (or are they crocodiles, I can never keep it straight) on it.

I'm not a fan of logo ties regardless of how small the logos are.

Any figurative tie is tacky in my book. If the figures are advertising logos, that makes it worse.

I think logos are tacky on ties. The craftsmanship will show the quality, you don't need the logos to show that you are wearing a good brand.

I don't think anything beats the Christmas themed tie.

Have you seen the St.Patty's Day themed ties? All green with little leprechauns. Prettty horrible, I must say.

I avoid logo and novelty ties like the plague, you will be mistaken for an employee of the establishment or if it has a cartoon character on it, a dweeb.

I really like it, stylish because its RL, not tacky because it's not Snoopy.

Personally I think that could be a fine complement to a larger collection of ties.

they're fine as you wore them with a zip up cardigan, but with a suit or jacket they won't work as well.
