While by no means a recent development, the tie tuck has been reinvented as a trend by gents of all ages. A much more gracious technique than a tie that is tossed over a shoulder during meals or while out and about, a purposeful tie tuck keeps your outfit neat and tidy all day, with no midday adjustments required.
Worn in a style capacity – no practicality here – the tie tuck is best executed with a highly patterned or vibrant shirt paired with a plain tie, so the tie is not the focus of the outfit but a merely just-happens-to-be-like-this addition. The look is best accomplished with a thin tie – as a wider style will bulk the shirt too much – with woollen knitted numbers the most smooth sitting.
Knot your neckpiece in a Windsor, slipping the ends through the gap between the second and third button of your shirt. To honour the trend’s military history, wear an olive, cream or other earthy-coloured shirt with a matching plain tie, paired with aviators up top.
