Putting on a tie when leav­ing work for the day

The Daily Telegraph - - Letters to the editor -

sir – I am not ex­pected to wear a tie at work (the Con­quest Hos­pi­tal) but am ex­pected to wear one at play (at Rye Golf Club).

sir – I once re­paired to the gen­tle­men’s read­ing room of the Hong Kong Club in or­der to rem­edy the ef­fects of jet-lag.

On closing my eyes, I re­alised I had not re­searched the dress code for this room. To be on the safe side, I knot­ted a tie round my neck.

This is the only time in my life that I have put on such a gar­ment prior to sleep.

Chert­sey, Sur­rey sir – When sun­bathing – a rather vul­gar Ital­ian habit that I en­joy –

I do not wear a tie. Yet a tie is nec­es­sary for any­one with élan to add style to an other­wise bor­ing se­lec­tion of men’s for­mal suits.

A tie is of vi­tal prac­ti­cal­ity when sail­ing in high lat­i­tudes. A tightly knot­ted Royal Cruis­ing Club tie is all but fool­proof for pre­vent­ing icy wa­ter creep­ing down one’s back. Ewen Southby-tai­ly­our

sir – If James Wraight (Let­ters, De­cem­ber 7) wears a tie in Tesco, what does he wear when he shops at Waitrose – a cra­vat?
