Guys and Ties: Why You’re Better than Christian Grey

Sure, he’s charming, successful, and knows a thing or two about the importance of looking impressive. But wealthy as he may be, it’s no coincidence that the business-savvy star of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy dresses as shadowy as his name.
Christian Grey has a dark past and a mysterious present, reflected by his suave and sophisticated choice of formal wear:  a sleek, grey Italian suit with a sharp taper at the waist paired with a lustrous silver necktie. Grey indeed, both literally and metaphorically.
But even if you’re not a billionaire, you can still be a billion times better than Christian Grey, especially when it comes to your tie. So instead of limiting yourself to one single persona like old Christian Grey and his steely demeanor, go ahead and show the world your different shades with a variety of ties.
Because different moods call for different ties
We’re way past the days when a tie was a mere formality and some fat, wide piece of fabric hung from your neck. It used to be it didn’t matter if a tie was black, blue, or red, so long as it was simply there and it was tied right. Today, the tie you wear is a window to your soul. With the uniformity of two and three-piece suits, a tie gives you a chance to express yourself and stand out from the rest of the starched shirts in the office.
When it comes to interviews, for example, most employers these days don’t just want another guy. They want someone unique who exceeds the job description, who has a personality and isn’t afraid to show it. And in today’s fast-paced world where talk is cheap, you don’t talk about your personality in the workplace—you show it through your actions and your style.
With formal wear, you show your personality with a tie.
The right tie can even have a strong influence on others. If you’re headed into an important meeting, a light blue tie can have a calming effect that puts everyone at ease. If you’re giving a presentation, a red tie can give the impression that you’re smart, powerful, and know what you’re talking about, even before you say a single word. And if you’re in a chipper sort of mood, yellow or green can be an excellent color choice for making others feel happy when they see you.
Maybe you’re a mixed bag of moods, or you don’t really want to be seen as an open book. You have a dynamic, eccentric personality and look to ties with interesting patterns to drop hints about your true nature. Now that’s expressing yourself through style like you mean it.
Maybe you rock the conservative-ish striped tie but in bright pastels or a checkered tie in grey and charcoal. Those are a solid start, but if you really want to be the anti-Christian Grey, check out Squiddledee Ties.
