The Knitted Tie

The tie as we know it today are not for everyone and may feel too formal for some. But there are other alternatives, and today we will talk about the knitted tie.

The knitted tie is an unrated choice among accessories for men and in this article I wanted to change that view. I favor the knitted tie due to its casual nature and that it can be worn with almost everything. Wear it with a suit, a pair of odd trousers and sport coat, or why not with a pair of raw denims? The choices are endless. I have even seen people that have worn them with suede and denim jackets with great results.

What stands out with the knitted tie is first of fall the shape of it with its squared bottom. Compared to the normal tie, it does not have any lining, folds or edges and is instead stitched like a knitwear garment. Secondly, the width of knitted ties are in most cases narrower and are commonly found in widths of 6-7 cm. All these details makes the tie less formal and the perfect choice for more casual oriented outfits. 

I have included my favorite knitted ties that are available on the market right now.
