Your Quick Guide To Knitted Ties


Whether you buy your knitted ties online or in person, there are a couple of rules that you would perhaps be wise to follow if you want to make sure you look the business as you go about town.

Don’t worry - it’s not especially complicated but you might find you regret your purchase when your online tie delivery arrives and it’s not quite right. Knowing the rules also means that you’ll be more confident in your abilities to break them later down the line!

But what rules could possibly exist when it comes to wearing a knitted tie? The first rule - and, perhaps, the best of them all - is that your tie will work no matter the season and you can dress it up and down, so it’s quite the versatile little addition to your wardrobe, we’re sure you’ll agree.

What you will need to give serious consideration to when purchasing this kind of tie is the width. Where knit is concerned, look for something that’s slightly narrower than the tie you might wear to the office. It’s the width of the tie that makes it perfect for both casual outings and more formal wear, as it’s a contemporary shape that works in all sorts of settings.

Generally speaking, knitted ties come with a square bottom, unlike more traditional ties that are tapered at the end. This is in large part why ties of this kind work so well at a variety of different occasions - they’re immediately less formal with the square bottom, but you can dress them up by focusing attention on the rest of your attire instead.

While you might think that knitwear only really has its place during the winter months, the real beauty of a knitted tie is that it works no matter what season we’re in. Pair it with darker colours during the winter and then consider wearing a pastel coloured tie with a linen suit in spring or summer… you’ll find yourself reaching for your knitwear more often than you think!

It only really takes one wear of a knit tie for someone to adopt the look on a regular basis - and that’s partly because it’s a very easy way to add texture and interest to a look.

It’s also worth noting that because of the fabric they’re made of, the ties travel incredibly well and won’t wrinkle up - so if you’ve got a big event coming up that requires a tie, pack your knitted one in your old kit bag and smile your way to style!
