4 months into my finance job. These are the only ties I have right now. Got made fun of today because I wear the same ones too much. So I need some new ties. What do I need? What's a good job interview tie?

DeathDog

get more ties like the red one in the middle and purple one on the far right
those are the best ones

go to saks off fifth and get past season Brioni ties

Brioni

I keep hearing about them. Why are they so fucking expensive? Pretty much double what I spend on my most expensive one.

@cum2soon
they're way better made
the designs are beautiful, yeah
but if only you had only one Brioni tie and wore it every day it would pretty much stay pristine forever
I own three....paid retail for one and the other two were from the outlets and are the same quality

I'm interested. Would have to see one in person. Would like a nice solid interview tie for a new position opening up in a few months.

Where can I get them cheap?

The key is to wear plain color silk ties of high fashion brands if you don't want to spend a ton of money on them.

If you're the kind of guy wearing plain color high fashion ties, in the mind of people you're the kind of guy who would buy 10 black ties, 10 blue, 10 green, 10 red, etc because you have no time to waste picking ties but have a lot of cash.

The thing is you only bought 1 of each color so that's basically 4/8 total depending on the brand but no one needs to know that. And no one will ever make fun of you, they will bow down to the high fashion branding.

If they are all just solid colors then how can they tell an expensive tie from a cheap one? They are all silk and look the same. Why get designer for $200 when a department store one for $40 will pass as it?

I like linen ties. They have a rugged texture to them, like burlap, and they dont look like faggy silk pajamas.

Suitsupply has cool ties, but they're too expensive. Wish I could find something similar at a better price.

Techpill

@Harmless_Venom

Designer ones are of better quality so you will keep them longer and they will degrade a lot less over time which works for you in the sense that you want people to believe you have more than one of each and that can't be done if one of them has for example a tiny hole due to cigarette or whatever the fuck else time of degradation can happen.

Also designer ones have the actual designer branding on them on the back and other details that, depending on the crowd you're in, will get noticed. Idk who's in op's work and social circles but I know in mine everyone can spot high fashion brands and knows how to spot a fake as well.

It is true however that you could do the same thing with cheap ones provided it doesn't make you a pleb to people in your circles.

Any tie that's not pic related is good.

Wear less distinctive ties (solid blue, solid burgundy, etc.) if you only have a few ties to wear.

@cum2soon
Why are they so fucking expensive?

Because they're among the best on the market (for the US market at least: the European ones are made by another inferior maker). Better silk, better construction, better design.

And because Brioni loves big profits, of course.

Why are ties so expensive? Its just a fucking strip of cloth..and they are sometimes worth as much as a dress shit.

@Techpill
I have more than 100 ties, going from cheap (€20) to expensive (€200).

I wear both and there's no visible difference between them. Longevity is also exactly the same.

No, people cannot tell the brand of your tie, unless you go for distinctive models like Hermès animal prints, Leonard flower prints, Missoni "M" prints, etc. (And why would you want people to see the brand at the back of your tie?)

If you just wear solid silk ties, literally no one sees the difference, and no one cares in general.

Also, if your friends judge you on your ties, you'd better find new friends. And that's coming from someone who wears Brioni, Charvet, Turnbull & Asser, etc.

How do you guys define
"business casual?"

like is there multiple meanings for this?

I thought about going to some business social event in my city. I think its for some charity thing. It doesn't say anything about the attire, but it says that there is going to be games, craft beer and small performances by local musicians.

what do I wear to these kinds of events?

Minimum do some nice wool sacks, tucked in dress shirt, nice shoes. Basically what you wear with a suit but no jacket or tie.

Once you move up in position start wearing a jacket with the outfit, then add a tie after you move up.

Not all people in your position night wear a suit but everyone above them in the company you will come in contact probably will and it shows them that you are serious and are willing to play ball.

Don't do that. Wear charcoal ones if you need to go dark, but not black. Generally, not wearing black is always a good idea.

You can wear most colours, except black and white.

Solids have their place in a wardrobe, like any other style, and they're very useful for people who are starting, or people who need to "tone down" the patterns of their shirt and suit.

It can be wise to avoid club ties, to avoid offending members of a club who sport the same tie... but that's not extremely likely. And striped ties aren't all club ties, so they're good.

No one ever thought a patterned Hermès tie, or any other tie that just came out 3 months ago, was associated with a century-old fraternal organisation.

TL;DR: wear almost everything you want. You just invented those rules, they don't apply in the real world.

I'm getting my first finance internship starting next week.

What do I wear?

A full suit?

I'm 19. What do?

I've got the pants, dress shoes, collared shirts and ties, I don't have the jacket, would I even need one, I don't want to come across as that douchy kid that thinks he is Gordan Gecko because he got his first internship

Inmate

@DeathDog
What do I wear?
A full suit?

Yes. Just a dark suit, with a light blue or white shirt, a conservative tie, and black oxfords if possible.

No one will think it's douchey, the point of such as attire is that it's pretty modest.

A jacket is mandatory. Sports jacket and odd pants may not cut it.

Female Veeky Forums fashion? Everything I find online is geared to english/libartz majors and looks ridiculous. Skirts/skirtsuits/dresses only please. Pantsuits aren't moe.

Is something like this acceptable or does it have to be a skirt-suit and collared shirt?

The male has his collared shirt tucked in and the female has hers out. Is there a reason? Could I use a blouse instead of collared shirt?

Also, can I remove the shoulder padding? I heard the fabric wouldn't hang properly, but I already have boobs that fuck it up anyway so what's the difference? I hate padded shoulders in jackets.

Wore same shirt and tie to work for 4 months. Washed shirt every 3 days. Got 'made fun of' but didn't cry because I'm not beta. If the workplace wants a fashion show every day they can pay for the clothes. My work only paid for 3 shirts and 1 tie and I cbf taking the other 2 shirts out of the packaging because they were the same shirt anyway.

Dress requirement for women are more liberal. The two pictures you posted are fine to me (and I'm pretty conservative).

Watch "The Good Wife" if you want to get an idea of what's proper dress for office. All the men are perfectly dressed in this show, and the female characters look very proper as far as I know (except Kalinda Sharma, but that's the point).

removing the shoulder padding

i think the more important question is why do you care what they think? tell them to leave you alone. if they dont talk to hr. dont get pulled into water cooler politics, they are trying to assert dominance. this is all under the assumption that you dont care too much about ties and are doing this because of social pressure.

I work at a bank and wear ties every day all day

The absolute EASIEST is a white shirt with a dark blue/navy tie. Make sure to get a modern slim tie, but not those toy boy mini things. Keep it simple, start out with solid blues and stay away from stripes unless you want that ameritrash vibe.If you have the money get a couple of ties from Boss. Google:

'Tie 6 cm' | Slim, Silk Woven Tie by HUGO
the above tie is bawler as fuck i might get it..
'Tie 6 cm' | Slim, Silk Patterned Tie by BOSS
'Tie 6 cm' | Slim, Cotton Silk Blend Tie by BOSS

Also nice:
'Tie 7.5 cm' | Regular, Silk Striped Tie by BOSS
'Tie 6 cm' | Slim, Silk Patterned Tie by BOSS

If you want to spend less try stuff from Esprit or We Fashion. Basically stuck to solid dark blues! Once you have 3 blues, you can venture into grey and red using the same advice as above. A tie is not meant to be prominent, but classy.

@Illusionz
Good advice

That's fashionable (although I think "slim" is a dying fad), but it's not the best thing to wear in office, unless you're extremely young and thin. Stick to the classic widths, 8 to 9 cm, preferably 9.

stay away from stripes unless you want that ameritrash vibe
This makes zero sense. Stripes are perfectly respectable, unless you're classifying most US presidents (who routinely wear striped ties) into the "Ameritrash" category.

Boss
Okay, but not better than cheaper brands.

6 cm
Much too thin.

stuck to solid dark blues
It's not bad, but you can venture into other colours.

BinaryMan

I'm assuming working in a financial office type job in NYC requires you to be "a little gay"... like, you get put on projects and promoted based on how much money you spend on clothes. Is this right? Or the ties make you look richer and command more attention and stuff. Again, I'm assuming.

I used to work as an engineer at the MTA, and I didn't dress very fancy. Black pants, black shoes, white shirt, black tie, black jacket. Only worked there for a co-op though, maybe that's why.

Now I work in the field with all the Union construction dudes. Now I wear cargos from Walmart, and beefy white hanes t-shirts every day. I bleach everything. I'm more concerned about my clothes not smelling like gas and being able to take a dump than what I look like. Then again I'm single, never ever get laid and don't work in an office anymore, so... just goes to show...

@idontknow
its not a dieing fad, you could do 9, but assuming you are young and ambitious i would go 6. Stripes can be done, since OP is a total retard lets not give him any room for error. Agreed Boss isnt "better" but they make consistent nice designs and personally i think its good to spend a few extra bucks and feel like a king. 6cm = slim, dont contradict yourself.

Anyway OP;
