We often get enquiries about the different types of ties we can design and manufacture. With lots of styles, colours, patterns and choices available, it’s not easy to pick the best necktie, so we have put together this basic guide to tie patterns and styles.
Solid Colour Ties
The solid colour necktie is one of the most versatile. Anyone can wear it without having to worry about patterns clashing or matching. Everyone’s tie collection will definitely have a solid colour tie with the colour used to make a bold or soft statement.
Schools use these ties to effectively distinguish their different houses, with the most popular colours being red, green, blue and red.
It is also easy to personalise solid colour ties as the logo stands out prominently and by going for a silk tie on a solid colour with logo you can make a real bold brand statement.
Stripes were originally used on sporting club neckties. There is a striped tie out there for every man’s taste!
Colour hues range from subtle colours to bold and bright colours.
The first known use of striped ties was at the college rowers of Exeter College in Oxford. They took their boaters and tied them around their necks as a way to identify with their college.
This advanced to an accessory which evolved into a true striped necktie made with the college’s colours.
From then on striped neckties have been used as a means of identification for Rugby, Football, Cricket, Golf and all types of sporting clubs which are made up of the clubs colours and crest.
A Checked Tie is another tie pattern suitable for the formal workplace.
Made of small lines crisscrossing each other throughout the length of the tie, checked tie can have mesmerising visual appeal.
This tie pattern is also a great choice for work or play. Men not only choose to wear the checked necktie to work but also outside of work. The strong lines of the tie can stand out and really enhance any formal suit.

Made of basic shapes like triangles and squares on the background of the tie, these ties look corporate, crisp and clean.
It is amazing what can be achieved with basic shapes, repeated, to create stunning tie designs.
These ties are usually made from two colours and or two tones. But with customisation, any number of colours, tones and textures can be created to give the desired effect.

Polka Dot Ties
The polka dot ties are the trend of the season and more of the younger men are wearing polka dots combined with skinny ties.
It can be worn both at work and play. With careful choice of colours, they look very professional in a business attire.
You can customise and play with the size of the dots to give the desired effect.
They also come in various materials such as 100% silk and polyester.
Originated from Persia, paisley tie pattern was recognised as a sign of fertility. In the 60’s it evolved into a design loved by hippies focused on free love and peace. Therefore it is mostly worn in a celebratory environment such as a wedding or engagement.
