    Hi all! I have been reading the posts at "the Fashion Spot" for some time now, and I find that a lot of people here have a great sense of style! My boyfriend's birthday is approaching, and he just got elected onto our university's Governing Council as a student representative, so I want to get him a classy, presentable tie as a birthday gift. I know that Gucci has some pretty nice ties, cause I've gotten one before for my high school teacher, but what styles and other brands would everyone recommend for a 22-year-old guy who's not really that into fashion?

    I could totally do with your help!!

    I noticed Burberry had a lot of nice ties.

    and not just the regular old Nova print.

    Hugo Boss or Paul smith have great college-ey looks...

    Hermes for the traditional look...(not for most)

    Armani for some cool...

    Dior Homme - you can have any colour you like as long as it's black...

    Dolce é Gabbana if he likes his patterns...

    Also worth a mention Canali, Zileri, Zegna, Burberry Prorsum, Yves SaintLaurent, Gucci, Lacroix Homme, Givenchy, Lanvin...

    Personally my favourite tie is cream with with black and silver diagonal stripes and I can't resist raw, woven black silk.

    Wow... thanks all!! I will keep in mind all these brands, and I like the idea of Hugo Boss, Prada and Armani, I think they would be great choices :)

    PrinceOfCats: That's a beautiful tie!! He would probably need something a bit more conservative, but I would totally wear it and maybe it could be an add on for later, but right now he needs some staples that he can wear all the time! :)

    Thank you for the input!! :king:

    Probably YSL, Gucci...i liked the Prada print ties from Fall 2003...but they werent for most men.

    I wonder if prada has a tie-dye tie...hmmm, that would be cool :innocent:

    i am anything but a conventional girl but ironically i chose a conventional Loewe homme tie for me last time i bought one. Very modern ties can look a bit tacky sometimes... you can never go wrong with a quality classic tie, me thinks!:)

    I myself have been contemplating for awhile whether or not to purchase a tie. However I'm not sure it is my style. I'm more of a jeans with a vintage tee, or hoddie, and alot of scarves wearing type guy lol. So I'm not sure whether purchasing a tie for me would be a good decision. Can ties be worn casually? Or is it something that has to be used with a suit or something?

    Lol sorry for asking questions during your thread! Anyways I saw these beatiful ties at Louis which I loved. The print wise nice and simple. I find simplicity sometimes is the best approach, rather than having a tie with too much color and tacky patterns. The Louis ties retail for $210 CDN! Try Holt as well they have a wide selection.

    I'd suggest looking for a tie that would go with his other clothing. You can buy a great Hermes tie but if he doesn't have anything to go with it it's just a $200 silk rag.
    Also and I can't stress this enough, simple is better. There may be exceptions to this but as a guiding rule-simple is better. :D
