Furthermore , did you notice that the original question was only directed towards Chasidim - because - quite frankly - Jews from all other sectors of Judiasm wear ties. The only hava amina was with - pious - Chasidim

@DoubleAA in any case from the gist of my answer it is clear that your intentions will only help when we're talking about a 'neutral' object not a forbidden one. As I said above: in hachi nami: for those that say it's ossur- it's ossur! But if you insist, i'll edit out the bit about Chukas Akum

Are you saying that If you follow the Gra, then it's ossur to wear a tie? Something tells me this is wrong because i've seen religious Jews who follow the Gra and wear ties.

@DoubleAA: did you see Shalom's comment: "But R' Moshe Feinstein writes that American clothing styles are all about looking good (or trying?) and therefore not "senseless.

comment Do Chasidim avoid wearing ties?
Excuse me? the whole basis of my answer was that ties are NOT formally forbidden but rather based on svoro/speculation. I tried reading the Gra but I don't think I fully understood it. In any case I didn't see any clear reference to ties. So no, I WAS NOT talking about a real issur deoraita. (Are you saying that it's mefurash in the Gra that wearing a tie is an issur deoraita??)

@DoubleAA There are Rabbis which say that internet is forbidden. If someone comes along and says: "wait a sec, but I only want to use it for a daily Torah shiur" - is this making a mockery of the halachik system?

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 ;)
