How to choose a tie
Choose colors and patterns according to "what impression you want to make on the recipient.
For example, blue/blue colors give the impression of sincerity and cleanliness, red/red colors are passionate and positive, yellow colors are energetic and bright, and gray colors are calm and smart. In terms of patterns, small patterns are calming, stripes are sharp, and checks are fresh and soft.
Flashy colors, stripes that are too thick, or polka dots that are too large will give a somewhat casual impression, so it is best to choose the atmosphere and scene of the workplace or event to wear them to.
We also recommend that you choose colors that match the season.
Necktie words to remember
It refers to a diagonal stripe pattern toward the upper right corner, which originated from the British regimental flag. It is an eye-catching pattern that makes a strong impression, and is popular as a standard pattern for neckties in Japan.
The reverse pattern is the opposite of regimental, which is toward the upper right corner and toward the upper left corner. It is also called "American-style stripes" because Brooks Brothers, which originated in New York, was the first to introduce it.
It refers to a small pattern in Japanese or foreign style. For job hunting, it is best to avoid flashy crest patterns. Also, a small pattern placed on a regimental pattern is called a "royal crest".
Front apron and rear apron
The wider end of the necktie is called the “front apron", while the narrower end is called the “rear apron".The loop on the back of the tie is called a "loop".
How to care for your tie
Ties, like suits, should be brushed to remove dust. Gently brushing from the center of the tie toward the large and small swords will remove light dirt and dust.
2: Hang on hangers and dry in the shade
Since ties are worn around the neck all day long, they absorb a surprising amount of sweat. We recommend hanging it on a hanger and drying it in the shade for about a day. It is important to dry them thoroughly, as storing them in damp conditions can cause color fading and discoloration. If you are concerned about sweat stains, prepare a cloth dampened with water and dab it with the cloth to remove the sweat stains, then dry it in the shade.
3: Rolled up and stored
It is recommended that ties that have been dried in the shade for one day be rolled up and stored.By storing them rolled up, the knotted wrinkles naturally stretch out, making it easier to keep them clean.
For wrinkles that do not disappear easily, steam ironing is effective. Since direct application of the iron will cause shine, use a cloth to cover the wrinkles.
