A nice black and blue slim tie with white highlights and a brick pattern in the blue stripes could be a great addition to your wardrobe. This tie is made with a fabric called microfibre which is thought of as a man-made equivalent to silk. This means that it's much more stain resistant than a silk bow tie but still has the elegant sheen and luxurious feel to it. Microfibre ties are also one of the most popular for uniforms and those in the service industry. It also means that no silk worms had to be exploited!
