If you’ve been thinking about investing in ties for your club, you’ve probably already done a fair bit of research. As such, you should have noticed that club ties are almost always striped, but you might not know why that’s the case. Here are just four reasons why you should follow the trend and keep your club ties striped.
- Suits Different Outfits
One of the main problems with solid colour ties is that they don’t suit all outfits. Because there’s only one bold colour, certain clothing choices are going to clash, which is either going to result in your members feeling restricted in terms of what they can wear or looking out of place. A striped tie brings together lots of separate colours, so they are easier to wear with different outfits.
- Provides Plenty of Space for Embellishment
In some cases, all people want on their club tie is the club colours, but that’s not always the case. You may also want to include a motto or a coat of arms, and that’s easier with a striped tie since such design elements can be positioned alongside the stripes.
- Feels More Casual
Next time you’re in the office or heading into work on the train, take a look at the ties people are wearing. In general, you’ll find that people dressed for business are wearing solid colour ties – this is because those ties present a more formal appearance. Club ties should still be formal, but they shouldn’t look too business-like. A striped tie strikes that balance.
- Offers Greater Personality
What good is a club tie if it doesn’t reflect your club? A solid colour tie can’t convey much in the way of personality. In contrast, a striped tie can bring in more colours and distinguish itself from any other tie. If you pick a solid colour, your club tie is going to look just like a normal tie. If you pick a striped tie, you can design a colour scheme that’s unique to your club, and that’s going to help foster a stronger sense of community.
