Psychology of white ties
Each color expresses a certain mood and creates certain feelings within us. White is actually not a color. It is said to be color-less. True colors are created using the three basic colors of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, as well as Black.
Despite being color-less the shade of white does create certain moods within us. The color white resembles purity and innocence. Traditionally the color white was reserved for very special occasions since keeping it pure white and clean was difficult back in the day.
White ties are very rare in fashion today. More common are cream color ties (a mix between white and yellow), tan, and silver neckties. The solid color white tie is still worn but only for special, and formal occasions as well as when required as part of a traditional uniform tie. Judges in German courts for example must wear a white tie - resembling an open mind and clear thoughts.
During the 1920s American Gangsters wore all black in combination with a white tie. The 1967 Hollywood movie “Bonnie and Clyde” revived the American Gangster look with the white neckties.
