Consider fabrics other than silk.
Silk is the traditional fabric of choice, but it’s generally formal, and you do have other options. A man who wears button-down collars and a blazer to work, for example, should consider a traditional knit tie. Cotton is another option: Though cotton ties can be more difficult to find in stores, they are especially nice to wear in warmer weather.
