Eight Sleek and Chic Neckties for the Man in Your Life

  • The Professor

    Alexander Olch’s tweed Teddy bow tie goes perfectly with sweater vests and tortoiseshell-rimmed glasses. The Idiot’s Guide to Sartre is, sadly, not included. ($105, Alexander Olch)

  • The Preppy

    If Dad’s idea of heaven is a clambake in Nantucket, then you already know he’ll wear anything from prep god Ralph Lauren. Rip a page from the Preppy Handbook in this St. James Spotted Silk Tie. ($115, Polo Ralph Lauren)

  • The Master of the Universe

    For the man whose mantra is “Greed is good,” nothing but a snazzily bold red tie will do. Dads will conquer Wall Street in Salvatore Ferragamo’s stylish Gancini Stripe Tie. ($170, Salvatore Ferragamo)

  • The Surfer

    Beach bums Jeff Spicoli, Jack Johnson, and Matthew McConaghey exude natural cool, just like your pops. J.Crew’s chilled-out chambray tie goes perfectly with his shoes-optional lifestyle. ($83, J.Crew)

  • The Rocker

    Shred your axe and live out your Keith Richards fantasy in Alexander McQueen’s Skull and Dot Tie. A badass tie for your badass dad. ($175,

  • The Grandpa

    Celebrate your father’s father with this classic ribbed silk tie from Turnbull & Asser. The bespoke British company has outfitted Prince Charles, Ronald Reagan, and Sir Winston Churchill. ($175,

  • The Bohemian

    After a forty-year absence, the ascot is making a meteoric sartorial comeback. Luckily, Tom Ford’s foulard (that’s an ascot, for you English mouth-breathers) is more Johnny Depp and less Fred from Scooby Doo. ($325, Tom Ford)

  • The Sports Fanatic

    If your dad’s devotion to sports extended to his wearing his Miami Dolphins jersey to your wedding, upgrade him to a chicer addiction. Vineyard Vines sells custom ties for every NFL team, so he’ll never have to leave the house without showing his support—and you don’t have to pretend like you don’t know him! _($75, Vineyard Vines)
