When it comes to men’s suiting, ties play an important role. A suit without a tie can often look incomplete. Nonetheless, any sartorial man should be aware that the traditional tie is not the only option on hand. There are a number of types of ties that can be sported by a man at different times.

Here is a guide on the type of men's ties, and how and when to wear them.

This knot is best used with medium and narrow width ties; for wide ties, a Windsor know is a better choice.
