comment Do Chasidim avoid wearing ties?
You wouldn't pasken whether a tie is Chukos Hagoyim from a possuk, but rather from a Svoro like: 'it's a useless garment so which goyim wear, so therefore we shouldn't be wearing it' which is exactly what i'm been saying all along. In any case i'd like to see the tshuva you're referring to.

What i'm trying to say is that if there was a clear-cut halacha of Chukos HaGoyim - then there would be an outright issur and nobody would wear ties

So THOSE people shouldn't/don't wear ties (like I said in my answer)

@Double AA :Which Tanna says that ties are Chukos Hagoyim?? The fact that many great Rabbis wear them is proof enough for me that it is not really 'Chukos Hagoyim' but only similar to it. For THIS I can say it depends on the wearer's intensions. If the tie had Shatnes in it however - then intensions wouldn't help ;)

I don't know of any... but I would take the Alter Rebbe's word for it.

I didn't see the other (duplicate) question. Before I submit a question I always look if similar ones are out there.. and nothing similar showed up
