Whether you're a necktie newbie or a suit-wearing professional, Loop Ties' extensive selection of handcrafted handsome-makers and its helpful guide for matching a tie to any occasion will help you find just the right fabric, fashion, and fold. If you are headed to a job interview, stick with something standard such as the black-, blue-, and white-striped tie or the slightly spiffier but equally classic purple-, black-, and white-checkered tie (both $15). The black-paisley narrow tie ($15) sports a subtle surface design well-tuned to a cocktail party or for testing a new pair of contacts. Tall folk can treat their whole torso to elegance as well by ordering something from Loop Ties' selection of long ties ($20). To show a loved one how much you appreciate their hard work, gift them with a premium seven-fold tie ($25) made with twice the silk.
