Ties are usually considered the cop-out gift for dad.

The kind of thing you give a man when you have no other ideas and you just have to fill a box with something — anything.

Not these ties.

With the help of stylist Jessica Cadmus of The Wardrobe Whisperer, we’ve put together a list of 10 ties that any man should be glad to own. Ties that will add something — texture, design — to his wardrobe.

And by the way, this is a public service announcement specifically directed at you, Wall Street. We’ve seen enough Ferragamo ties — the Wall Street uniform — to last a lifetime, and it has to end.

1. Every man needs a knit.

So try Orley’s houndstooth tie knit in Italian silk, designed in New York but produced in Italy. Get it at Orley for $83.

2. Bright colors will help you stand out from the crowd.

A 100% silk tie from Faburiq comes from fabrics traditionally cut for kimonos in Japan, and features a kaleidoscope of bright blues, pale pinks, and royal purples. The woodblock-printed pattern shows detailed chrysanthemum flowers.

You can get it at Faburiq for $125.

3. Wait for it … the impact is at the bottom.

Get this $119 Givenchy tie for the holidays at Barneys New York. Made with 53% wool and 47% silk, the tie was made in Italy.
