The majesty of the tie is sickeningly underrated, and the knitted tie is perhaps the least appreciated accessory of all within fashion. However, this writer longs for its resurgence, and with releases such as The Hill Side’s Slub Tweed Necktie, this is bound to happen.
The wool tie is a powerful element in any man’s wardrobe, but still sadly lacking in many a style conscious gents. Providing the modern man with supreme versatility, the knitted tie can be worn with almost any suit and neutral shirt combination – helping to diffuse the austere nature of many traditional work suits, and allowing a debonair but refined style to shine through.
With its pale colour, Hill Side’s offering provides the subtlety required from a knitted tie – due to its slightly taboo focus in general wear – whilst still being able to contrast with your staple white work shirts. The dark flecks featuring sporadically along the piece also help provide it with a tactile element and a sense of character – able to contrast or complement both neutral and patterned formal wear, respectively.
Finally, the Slub Tweed Necktie can also be worn effortlessly with a casual shirt, often under a jumper, for a relaxed but formal look that is perfect for high class shindigs and garden parties with a kick of panache.
