On Trend: The Air Tie

I'm sure you've seen it and wondered if you could pull it off. You've probably even thought, "it just seems like something is missing." Question: can you wear a dress shirt or any collared shirt buttoned to the top, without a tie? YES! This look is called wearing an air tie and it has been around for quite some time now. Usually guys who wear this look are looking to buck trends and express their uniqueness and individual style. However, this look dates back to the days of the old west and was even seen during the industrial revolution in more conventional settings.

Of course in recent times artists, musicians and other creative types have adopted this look and made it their own.
