    Knitted Ties - Yes or No?

    I'm not sure if this is the correct name but im talking about these.



    Yay or Nay?

    When I first saw them in a shop I thought WTF! Recently I have seen a few more people wearing them and I just wanted to hear your thoughts?

    I quite liked knitted ties. They add texture to an outfit and work particularly well with the heritage look that's in vogue this season.

    I prefer them to be more muted in colour though, something like:

    I have one in red. The texture works really well with tweed and looks great on a plain white shirt.

    Just what I'm after! I fancy an olive green one to go with my brown tweed blazer. I found this one but I want it to be a richer colour.

    Hey Toe Bag,
    The simple answer is yes. The knitted tie will always work, unlike the silk tie which can look cheap and ruin and outfit. The knitted tie is also becoming popular on the catwalk too. Peckham Rye at London's Carnaby Street does so wonderful ones.

    Well that is a resounding "yes."

    I like that olive green one you posted Tone.

    Will check out Peckham Rye, thanks Evan.
