Since the men in my family (dad and hubs) never worked in a corporate office, I'm no good when it comes to shopping for mens ties. I had to ask for my cousin's help when I had to get one for my son for his confirmation. Men in my family would rather wear the traditional Barong Tagalog when attending formal functions. They say it's more comfortable than wearing a suit. Can't blame them, in this heat, a three-piece suit is not advisable.
