A man’s tie says a lot about who he is. Like a sleek Barney Stinson suit, there is almost a different tie for every occasion. Never, ever underestimate the power of a tie. Make sure you’re sending the right message by wearing the right one.
The Black Tie
Nothing screams ‘oh god yes’ more than the girl I took home last night. Nothing screams ‘classy’ more than the silky black tie I was wearing beforehand. A plain black tie is a suave addition to your tie collection. You can’t help look anything but awesome when you’re wearing it. Not to mention it’s an all occasion tie – from the bar to the office to a special event like a wedding or a funeral.
The Navy Tie
A navy tie is a great variation from the plain black tie. Look at a Barney Stinson suit, and tell me what a navy tie doesn’t look awesome with?
If your answer was nothing, then yes, you are correct. A navy tie goes with just about anything – white shirt, blue shirt, black suit, grey suit, navy suit. You get the idea.
The Paisley Tie
I can hear you questioning this one. But trust me. A paisley tie shouts confidence and creativity. Worldly and sophisticated. Bold and daring. Imagine the type of people that attracts.
It doesn’t need to be flamboyant. Play it cool with a single coloured or subtle toned paisley tie and wear it with a solid coloured shirt and suit.
The Burberry Check Tie
Nothing says ‘touch of class’ more than a Burberry check tie. You may attract a whole smorgasbord of attention from the more shallow fashionistas wearing your Burberry check tie, but that's not such a bad thing. The more popular option is the traditional tan Burberry check. For a slightly more understated look, go the black and grey.

The Diagonal Stripe Tie
Classic, classy, awesome. Yes, we’re talking about me. But a diagonally striped tie is also all those things. It’s pretty difficult to go wrong with a diagonally striped tie. Ergo - buy one in every colour.
Study carefully, young Padawan, the coordination enacted by Barney Stinson in suit and tie matching, and you will rock these ties like nobody's business.
