Even though neckties are most often associated with men in business suits, you might be surprised to find out that there are some other uses for ties as well. For those working in service industries uniform ties are quite common. Those working in and attending church will also see church ties on a fairly regular basis. And then of course, there is the black tie, always a must for a formal occasion. Should you fall into any one or more of these categories, its good to know what kinds of ties are expected to be worn for various reasons.
Uniform ties can be seen in many different occupations. Military and police often include them as part of their dress uniforms. Waiters at high-end restaurants and those catering formal events will also often wear uniform ties. In addition, a great many service companies, such as those employing delivery drivers, will require their employees to wear uniform ties. These ties are quite often the bow tie style, and may vary in color depending upon the look of the rest of the uniform. In most cases, you will be issued the exact tie you should wear once you are an employee.
Church ties can vary a great deal, depending upon the type of church and the events taking place there. While many denominations now encourage casual wear, there are still some that are quite traditional and wearing a tie to regular services is the norm. Church ties are most often worn by the clergy, even if the congregation is informal. Most often, you will see church ties at weddings and funerals. At weddings, the type of tie will depend upon the formality of the event, with regular ties worn for the less formal and bow ties worn for more formal. At funerals, the ties are usually regular silk ties.
The black tie is usually a bow tie and is worn when formal wear is required. When an invitation specifies black tie, it means that women should wear long evening gowns and men should wear a tuxedo with a black tie. While you might also wear a regular black tie with a suit, this is usually not what is meant when black tie is requested. If you are unsure about any event designation on an invitation, dont hesitate to contact the host or hostess for clarification.
As you can see, there is quite a bit of use for ties outside the usual business wear. Uniform ties can be worn by those in a great variety of occupations. You will usually receive specific instructions on what type of tie to wear. Church ties can be worn by the clergy or churchgoers in a more formal church service. You will also see them more often at weddings and funerals. For weddings, the type of tie will be determined by the formality of the wedding itself. Black tie means a very formal event, at which women will wear evening gowns and men wear tuxedos. If you dont know exactly what is meant, be sure to check with those in charge of the event first.
