Just about every knit tie has a square bottom, and if it has stripes, they tend to be horizontal.

Guess you won't be taking much inspiration from this thread?

It's nice to see it paired in a somewhat dressier look.

Also, yes, I am now subscribed to the WAYWRN threads, but it's definitely hard to keep up.

I tend to think a knit tie goes best -but by no means exclusively - with coarser weaves in shirts (eg 2 ply) and jackets. and better in winter, although that's more because of the association wool=cold=winter =heavier coarser weaves than a visual thing

Perhaps the tones of jacket and tie are too closely matched and both being solid.
This pic isn't doing the combo any justice. In real life, the jacket is smooth and navy and the tie is crunchy and forest green. They look great together. Not so sure about the PS, though.

Yup I like knits with oxford cloth shirts, less so with very smooth fabrics.

I think they go great with most suits; but sometimes they don't look as good with pinstripes. I'm wearing a light grey tie w charcoal glen plaid suit today and they look great together. Shirtwise I think they sit best on a solid or gingham shirt. As tobiasj notes they look good against oxfords, but I will say they look equally as good against finer solid colored shirts.

Summer is probably the best time to wear knit ties.

Agreed, I think pinstripes are just too 'businessy' for knit ties; it's just too discordant to try to combine them.

Winter heavy wool ties are also awesome though.

Quoted for awesome-ness.

Knit ties will never go out of style. The Beatles to Alex P. Keaton worn it. Even it was stylish in the 1960s and 1980s. I've even got a couple of Robert Talbott knit ties 3" wide from David Lindsey Clothiers. I've purchased a navy one in late 2009, and a burgundy one earlier this year. Timeless classics you dig!

3" is wide for a knit, IMO. All the ones I own are at 2", and with the visual weight of the texture, I would think any more could come across as too much.

I wear my knit tie like this
