Each category features a picture of a man wearing the type of tie, making it easy for users to identify which category matches their ideal style. Within each category is a collection of specific tie styles, such as Windsor, St. Andrew, and Simple Double neckties. 11 tie knots are free with the app, while the rest are available as an in-app purchase.
