Ties are made from fibers including silk, satin, polyester, wool and cashmere. Ties may also blend multiple fiber types together. Silk ties are versatile, as they can be worn at anytime of the year. Satin ties are shiny and work well with suits. Satin ties also tend to wear out more quickly than other ties and any damage to the tie is noticeable.
