Wool vs. Other Tie Fabrics
Wool may seem like a unusual fabric choice for a men's tie. While indeed rare, wool ties have its place in mens fashion. The coarser and matte look of the wool tie is perfect for certain looks and patterns. Think about traditional highland plaids and tartans for instance in classic dark greens, reds, and browns. Such a pattern is perfect for a wool tie and nicely compliments Fall looks of tweed blazers, navy sports coats, cardigans, and so on. Usually 100% wool ties are best for Winter months whereas silk/wool blends will also suit late Summer and Fall attire.
