I see articles like this quite often. I wonder who all the national pollsters poll about these things? How big of a group do they talk to to get their percentages? I’m sure that there are quite a few people who don’t wear ties because they don’t have to in their there work environment, but does that spell demise?
I’m pretty sure it doesn’t.
The question I always ask myself is: “What’s going to replace the necktie?”
Answer: (For the masses) “Nothing.”
It’s still going to be the go-to piece of clothing for any guy who is trying to dress-up and/or look professional. Sure, there are other variations.
Also, there is the bow tie.
Until someone comes up with a completely new way to dress a guy up that will appeal to a couple billion men, I’m pretty sure the necktie is here to stay.
