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.
