8 Types of Neckties

Let's discuss ties. Whatever line of work you are in, every man should always have a few nice ties on hand for interviews, formal events, or even a night out when you want to seem extra dapper. A tie can elevate even the most basic of outfits a few notches when worn properly. Here are 8 distinct styles of ties and suggestions for how to wear each one.

Four in Hand Necktie

The majority of us are familiar with this tie. It is a standard in most workplaces and unquestionably suitable for most formal situations. There are countless variations available for this kind of tie, including different widths, hues, patterns, and materials. Another method to liven up this traditional garment is with knots. There are countless additional, more intricate knots you can try once you've mastered the Windsor Knot.

The Seven Fold Tie

A square yard of silk is folded seven times to create this design, which is a close relative of the four-in-hand tie. The way this tie is manufactured prevents it from having a lining, yet its thickness allows you to tie a wonderfully attractive knot with little effort. Once more, this style of tie is ideal for the workplace or a formal occasion. These ties can be pricy due to the material, so you could only wear them on rare occasions.

Skinny Necktie

Another variation of the four-in-hand tie, skinny ties became popular in the 50’s and 60’s with bands like the Beatles wearing them onstage. These ties are still popular today and are great for the office, but still looks sharp for a night on the town. Skinny ties are great to wear with jeans for an stylish, but edgy look.


The bowtie can be a fun alternative to the everyday tie and is a must have for truly formal events. They are extremely popular in the Southern states and therefore perfect to pair with a seersucker suit. This type of tie can be used in a variety of setting from Balls to cocktail parties to everyday wear.

Western Bowtie

This is a variation of the classic bowtie, and was Southern staple, both in the southeast and the west. Most people might think of Colonel Sanders when they see this style of tie. While still popular is the southwest as formal wear, it comes off as a bit too casual for other regions.

Bolo Tie

Bolo ties gained popularity in the 1970s and have since been worn by baby boomers who enjoy constructing dream catchers and gold panning (fun fact: in 1971, Arizona made bolo ties the state's official neckwear; similar laws have been passed in New Mexico and Texas). Although this cool item of man jewelry has recently become more popular, unless you live in the southwest, it might not be appropriate for the workplace.


A dressier variation of the cravat, the ascot is typically pinned rather than knotted. It is used for formal occasions, though some military uniforms use an ascot as opposed to a standard tie. This type of neckwear earned its name by being the choice of neckwear on race day at the Ascot Racecourse in England.


Possibly one of the most overlooked options in neckwear, it’s common to see boy scouts wear these as part of their uniform. This type of tie is not formal, unless required with a uniform, so therefore isn’t appropriate for most work or formal occasions. It is, however, a great and unique way to dress up your everyday way.
