Although ties will always have their place, this knotted symbol of sartorial tradition gives way this season to a new way of suit-wearing. Replacing the tie is knitwear, from fine gauge roll necks to shallow crew necks. This new approach to suiting is fast gaining popularity amongst city types keen to give tailoring a new spin. Look for fine-gauge knits; they won’t add bulk under your suit.

What to do with your tie collection? The best way to store your ties (for the time being) is by rolling them up and packing them away in a box or a drawer. Don’t hang them – they’ll sag out of shape.
