Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

I wear it for formal occasions only. Have a kind of dislike for ties since I was in high school where a tie was made obligatory about a year and a half before the graduation.

However I must admit some people look smart wearing a tie.

What about you?

I went to public school, so it was optional.  These days, I wear a tie about 70% of the time at work and 95% of the time when I'm going out some place where I'm not expected to get dirty.
Only at "dress up" time. I used to wear one daily at my last job in downtown DC where it was mandatory, but here away from the city people only wear ties to formal meetings and I follow suit lest I have to invariably face the "what, you have an interview today, har har" from the peanut gallery.
Occasionaly. It's not exactly my favourite piece, but sometimes it can add flavour to the appearance.
A decade ago, I had a job that required it. Now, it's just for special occasions. At the Maker Faire, I picked up the red one of these. Very dieselpunk, I thought.
Nice!! I never thought Etsy could actually do something true Dieselpunk.

I´ve only worn a tie 3-4 times in my life. I don´t want a noose around my neck.
One steampunker at Maker Faire wore a noose around his neck, in place of a tie.

Well, the vest is meant to be worn over the suspenders, so you won´t see them anyway.
@Markus - What country are you from?  The normal chain stores around me have Y suspenders and solid ties, even the skinny "mod" tie you're talking about.
As a Christian priest I only get to wear a tie occasionally! But these days in England tie-wearing is not really fashionable except for work now: few men wear them when out for an evening even at fairly smart venues.
I don't have a job yet (huzzah!) and have only needed to wear an actual tie once or twice in my life. The last time I did, it was for an interview-type-thing-where-you-had-to-dress-nicely at school, and I was uncomfortable all day. Stupid things were made for restricting blood flow to the brain!

I've only worn a tie once in my life and that was a bow tie at my uncle's wedding in 2002 or so.

My brother wears them and owns a lot of ties. Usually for events where one dresses up.

 

I've considered wearing ties to nice events. However, I do not own any shirts that one could wear a tie with. I usually wear hiking shirts.
