The visible warmth of wool is a property that makes it incredibly well suited to easily achieving style during the colder months. In the vast swathes of street style images posted daily on the web, the frequency of the wool tie is unrivaled.
Unlike ties in silk, wool ties have a more informal appearance and are more easily teamed with a more casual shirt and do not look out of place with a denim jacket or a formal blazer.
They are a great, easy and affordable accessory with a plentitude of choice available in vintage shops and on sites such as ebay.
A few handy tips for purchasing
1. Always opt for wool over polyester the difference is undeniable.
2. Opt for a flat rather than pointed ended tie this enhances its casual quality
3. Choose a design with a thinner segment for the part which ties around the neck, without this the collar of the shirt can become bulky.
