The knitted tie is one of the most versatile accessories in your wardrobe. Less formal than a classic silk tie, it can provide edge to formal wear or look equally at home with a more casual weekend look. The key with knitted ties is to keep things simple. Tie pins or complex knots can make what should be a clean, relaxed look feel forced and fussy. If you don’t have a knitted tie in your collection, it’s time to invest. This is a wardrobe staple for the modern sartorial man.
Knitted Tie Style Tips
- A simple four-hand knot is essential to a clean and secure finish for a knitted tie – anything else we look bulky. Take extra care when tying cashmere or fine knit ties which can be a little slippery if not handled with care.
- If you are going for a casual look then let the back blade of the tie hang loose – it feels less formal and adds a edge to your accessory.
- The range of knitted ties is enormous and there is one for every occasion and season. Start out with a simple tie in a solid colour and later expand your collection to include more detailed designs.
- Pair your knitted tie with a contrasting material for real impact – a leather or suede jacket can look great paired with a knitted tie.
