club tie (n) - a necktie worn by members of a club and bearing the club’s colors,
usually in stripe or the club emblem.
Club ties were originally created as a way to prove your membership to an exclusive club or group. The most common ones have a repeating pattern of the clubs emblem but this tradition has started to die and club ties are now mostly found in the fashion world. They have that preppy look that screams Ivy League University. If you’re a student then embrace that look and pair your tie with colored chinos and oxford cloth button downs. If you work in an office setting you can still wear them but because of the rich colors and bold print I would reserve them for the weekends.
