I have to wear a suit to work everyday and I wear quite conservative ties. Recently my colleagues in the office, especially the girls, have said that I should start wearing louder ties as they would better reflect my personality. So who makes the loudest ties?

Thanks.

Versace generally makes some pretty loud ties.

It's unlikely that a business environment where wearing a suit and tie is expected, would result in a loud tie being the preferable choice. As Alex Dumortier notes, "loud" is not a good thing in this context.

Ignore your colleagues' suggestions, much as if they were to tell you to wear "scruffier" clothing, to better reflect your personality.

As for your female colleagues, assuming you're single and interested in them socially, offer to wear less conservative ties when going out with them. But work is work, and play is play, and don't go confusing the two.

They were actually suggesting that I change my ties. I've looked at Duchamp and the others mentioned and they IMO are too loud. Are there any brands that are not too loud or too conservative at the same time?

It's threads like this that make me miss Vox the most. :sigh:

I've had a look at Turnball and Asser and I actually like their ties. Drakes ties tend not to have much colour in them.

Louder is different from loudest.

Pictures of your current collection?
