Sometimes that is the rub with knit ties that are on the "wider than usual for a knit" side. If it is sufficiently flexible, lightly woven, you can cinch the knot tighter, but if not, then ???. Tying it longer won't necessarily help unless there is some taper, which again can be limited in a knit tie. If you can't get it smaller, maybe try wearing it with jackets that have lower buttoning points as it won't appear to consume as much of the viewable shirt space as it is with this cut you are wearing now.

 

Yeah, there's no taper. I think your idea about jackets with lower buttoning points is probably the best bet. Thanks.

No sweat. Good luck with it, it looks like a nice tie.

Full shot wasn't salvageable; these will have to do. Damn shame, because the SC has killer patch pockets.

Tie is Kiton, square is Drake's, shirt is Borrelli, Trou are Cuci, socks are Panthy and shoes are C&J. Everything else is not anyone you'd have heard of.

GMML, 

 

The change in colours between the photos is...mind boggling. First the tie looked brown but the close up shows green. My humble opinion is that it would look better if you throw out the vest. But either way, I like the way you look.

Thanks. It is indeed greenish - somewhere between the two shots. I tweaked them a bit on PB, but chalk it up to: a) bad lighting; b) rushing around; c) 7 yr old as photographer; and d) who was subject to highly lacking adult supervision.

Seems to be unusually cold in the frigid north today, as both Swedish entries (thus far) feature cardigans for extra layering nod[1].gif We are now eagerly waiting to see if our cousins to the east will follow suit (@Roy Al, I'm talking about you).......

I will please an uncle from the brotherpeople hoping for everlasting bonds between the two nations that might lead to bilateral heating.

SVB, the knot doesn't need to be smaller because you look awesome today.
post #69746 of 78723
SVB i feel like the arms need to be rotated to better fit your physique, or are those sleeve ripples there because youre standing all robopose

P.S. love the DB

Thanks!

 

I seem to get the sleeve pitch comment every time I post on this side of the forum though. Part of it is the pose. Maybe this is why stitchy does that "I'm buttoning my jacket" pose all the time? Anyway, I asked around once and the consensus was that altering sleeve pitch is a needlessly complex and expensive operation for something that is only noticeable in a robopose photo. So I haven't bothered, but I realize people are going to keep mentioning it on here. Oh well. 99% of the day, it's not an issue.

post #69749 of 78723
I generally agree, Stanley, but severe pitch issues will be noticeable in most positions, not just robopose. If it doesn't bother you, though, keep on truckin'!

Noodles you shoulda had got this tie from Spoo's closet clean.
