Can anyone enlighten me as to how the solution to this is arrived at?

4d. Naturally male comes in for new tie (5)

I have M_T_H, which I think is Match.

I can see the link between tie/match and that the letter m is derived from male, but is this just a poor clue or am I missing something more obvious?

Thanks in advance

Hello Wombat - Natch is slang for natural - swop the n (new) for m and its match

Thanks to both of you. I would not have associated naturally with natch, its not a term I am familiar with, but it certainly answers my question.
