What Dot Pattern Should I Choose?
Usually the smaller the pattern, the more formal and elegant the tie will appear. Perfect for a more elegant touch are so-called pin-dot pattern ties – a pattern that is so miniscule in size that it almost looks like a solid color necktie from the distance. Larger polka dots great for adding new contrast and infusing some exciting pattern into your wardrobe, but please be careful of not overdoing it. Dots larger than ½ of an inch are usually too busy and distracting – making them unsuited for an elegant business look.
