The latest in men’s tie trends has nothing to do with a tie at all. “No longer a requirement for the power elite,” the Wall Street Journal said.
“Wearing one feels like playing dress-up,” bemoaned a writer for Esquire.
GQ magazine intentionally forgot the necktie when it styled actor Steven Yeun (“The Walking Dead”) for a spring style shoot. And so should you, they say.

The “air tie” evokes a retro, dressed-up vibe sans tie and has been popular with fashion forces such as LeBron James, Joe Jonas and Dwyane Wade. The best part is in its simplicity: Simply toss aside your tie collection and button your shirt all the way to the top.
