I think many men hate ties because their shirts don’t fit because they are clinging to their boyhood neck size and they don’t want to have to try to button the collar. Other men hate ties because they suspect their own taste and the selection of a tie presents a much higher degree of difficulty than choosing between a blue chalk stripe and a gray flannel suit. I think anyone who has a highly evolved aesthetic sense should welcome the expressive opportunity a tie presents
