Madras ties are so vintage, and so Preppy.
They are a great statement hanging around your neck.
Madras ties are bold, and are a great way of exuding confidence, as you walk into a room, with its colors splashing around...confusing and yet so simple.
Madras ties are best made in cotton madras plaid fabrics, which lend a summer coolness to the ties, while sporting a casual yet formal feel to the wearer.
Madras ties can be made in coordinated fabrics, for ties and pocket squares or just as ties alone.
All in all, an absolutely great way of expressing preppy style and class, and a complete preppy statement.
