Personal style is only as strong as your weakest link. What does that mean? Imagine you’re on a date and you rock a pair of raw denim jeans perfectly matched with a shirt & blazer… but it all falls apart because you don’t address the details. Your tie is mismatched because, well, you only own a few, your collar points are turning up, and your socks (should you, ahem, be in a position to remove your shoes at any point in the evening) are the same thing you wear to the gym. The moral of the story: Don’t be the crappy tie and sock guy.

Ties.com Has Hundreds of Ties & Accessories. Here are a few Primer Picks:
(Prices listed with 30% off code “EGGNOG30”)
Charcoal Cotton Yuma Tie – $14
Ideal for more casual applications, its texture makes this tie understated and eye-catching. White yarn is interwoven over a charcoal base to achieve the look.
Pair with a grey suit for a distinctive, casual look with lots of texture and character.
Bohol Skinny Tie – $17.50
A dark gray or blue tie with white flecks is a must-have. Pair with a grey or blue suit of any fabric for a subtle look that approaches formal without being aggressive about it.
Seagoville Skinny Tie – $14
Ah, the prep-school navy tie with white and red accents. Many an Abercrombie model has worn it as a belt or headband during photo shoots. But the strong identity of this tie makes it ripe for subversion: pair with a rakish jacket or a classic sweater for a timeless look.
Vice Tie Bar – $14
Minimal, functional, classy, the Vice tie bar (no relation to the hipster news outlet, though likely worn by a number of their employees) is an essential style detail.
Argyle & San Juan Capistrano Socks – $7 / each
If the devil is in the details, then these socks are definitely the details.
A modified window pane or Glenn check with a touch of red makes this an excellent formal accessory.
Cedar Tie Rack – $15
If you’re going to collect the right tie for each of the major outfits in your arsenal, you need a way to organize them. Do it right with a cedar tie rack-slash-organizer that keeps silk and cotton fresh and pest-free.
