    Starting the tie off loose



    I'm in college. I like to wear a tie occasionally, but rarely tighten it all the way or do up my top button unless I'm dressing up for something. I tend to think ties can be great casual parts of a wardrobe and always get compliments when I go this route.


    Here's an example: http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot...76525744_n.jpg (I was on vacation and lost a collar stay; forgot to bring extras. Excuse the floppy collar.)


    What do you guys think of it?

    I think with a sweater or sweater vest its great, especially on the deeper Vs that need a tie to look right. Good with a softer, more casual sports coat like a corded one, as well.

      sick cardy...i do that all the time. I think its a relaxed look, but the tie needs to be of a casual nature, not those politician or crazy silky ties, i think that look works great with a wool, cotton, well anything other than silk cuz your pretty much already super casual. 1exception though, silk rep ties are a go cuz they are a preppy look

                I love the loose tie look


                This thread reminds me of the movie I saw yesterday, "50/50"


                The wardrobe in that film was SO sharp. Seth Rogen donned the loose tie + dress shirt style quite a bit, and it looked great.

                  I like the look. It doesn't look trendy or bad. Looks like you dress classy and you are just loosened up after starting a busy day.

                    Like others have said, I think this is awesome for a casual look. It might look a bit off if you try it with a starched shirt, silk satin tie, etc. but as long as you keep everything on the casual side it's totally fine.
