This post is from my friend Nana Hemaa who decided to be my guest blogger for today. Enjoy her series.

So my friend here has an eye for nice stuff and likes her men sharp! hehehe

This is the first of my series of articles I have entitled MY SEXY MAN
I begin this write up by declaring that I am not writing in any capacity as a fashion authority or claim to know it all.

Fashion as any other art form does not have wrongs and rights. There can only be common sense.

This article is inspired by my observation (which may be limited in comparism to yours). Sometime back I wrote on Facebook that there is nothing sexier to me than a man who is dressed well.

I am particular about how men dress because unlike women they have very limited accessories (off course they are my sex of interest in all levels that matters.......what do I care when a girl looks sexy)

There was a time when it was ok for your flying tie to consist of a whole yard of fabric (I never fancied it even then) but I think those times are far gone. Likewise if you become a victim of fashion and wear an ultra slim flying tie underneath your suit jacket to work. (When I meet you I will laugh) While ties are generally worn for dressier occasions, you can still wear neckties with your semi-casual attire. Most of the ultra slim widths are more gorgeous when worn to dress up a sports jacket.

Choose ties that are the age of your personality rather than your actual age. However, if you are an older gentleman you should consider traditional widths and lengths. Younger men can be more experimental with their tie widths.

Tying of the knot; unless u are part of the British royal parliament please refrain from the Windsor knot. A thick knot like that makes you look pretentious and stuffy and if you have a thick neck you look plain idiotic.
Colours and Patterns; colours are the trickiest I think. It’s ok to experiment but please do it some amount of common sense.

If you just accepted to be the clown at some children’s party you can decide to wear a blue shirt and a green tie; that is perfectly acceptable but if you are dressing for work please think of conservative colours....dark shades of purples, some blues and ooooh I love a man that can wear pink and make it manly.

Always remember that a neck tie is an accessory so please make sure it compliments the basic clothing item you are accessorizing.

seriously i thought i was the only one who tended to notice the fashion disasters made by men with their ties. Some men wear stripped or dotted ties against stripped shirts or a tie with lots of details against a stripped shirt and there so much goin on i wonder if there is no fibre of aesthetics in their blood. Come on don't you check yourself in the mirror before you leave the house! What i find unforgiveable is when i see a wedding band. I ask if their wife did not see them leave the house?
