    Why is there such a preponderance of solid color ties worn with suits and sports coats on this forum?

    This seem to be tthe case with both solid and patterned dress shirts.

    There are so many beautiful printed and woven foulard patterns, and also exquisite
    printed paisley ties.

    These ties add so much more depth and polish to any outfit when done correctly.

    Is it because so many men do not understand how to coordinate there ensembles correctly?

    Your thoughts please.

    Iconsider having solid colored ties as investments considering they can be coordinated easily with any of my garments and they can last for quite a long time.

    I think a lot of members here spend a lot of time/money on their jackets, hence you have a lot of interesting jackets on the WAYWRN thread. Solid ties probably complement these better than a tie with a more complex pattern (or at least keep things from being too busy). Even within the "boring" tie genre, there are some neat ones.

    And there is a new tie thread where you can see more than just solid ties [​IMG].
