Made of natural silk, these ties provide elegance, glamour, and visual interest to match high-end suits. The best silk ties are usually made with bold color schemes, designs, and patterns that imply superiority and confidence. They are more expensive than the other types of neckties because of the material they are made of. Silk ties are also very delicate, and they require regular and proper cleaning. They should only be used with non-invasive tie tacks, as they are easily punctured by ordinary ones.
Types of Silk Ties
Kinds of Silk Ties include the following:
Woven jacquard silk ties
Woven jacquard silk ties feature woven designs on the fabric. They are made with threads of different colors. They are thicker than other silk ties.
Printed silk ties
Printed silk ties feature printed designs on the fabric. They offer more color and design options than the woven jacquard types. They are also thinner and easier to tie than the woven jacquard types.
Choosing Silk Ties (Buying tips)
Shape and length: If you want an elegant silk tie, choose one with a European shape featuring a larger knot. It should also have the right length – the tie should reach your waist when tied properly around your neck. Backing material: If you want the highest quality silk tie, choose one whose back and front is made of the same material.
Construction: Look for a handmade silk tie if you want ultimate luxury. If you are on a budget but still want a good quality silk tie, however, choose a machine-made one that has been finished by hand.
