Nice comeback! Not a complete recovery, but I think you realize that wink.gif.

I'd like to get a breakdown of Spoo's pocket squares.  The knots are exemplary though.  Dimple all the way.

Practice, and I give it a little tickle on the bottom.

There is a thread for this, you know.

I figured there were three but the other two weren't epic enough.

Unfortunatly, not all ties are made equal. I have some lovely Etro ties that just don't have the width necessary when making the knot. I can make the dimple, but the fabric resists, and the dimple is short lived. Maybe I'm not experienced enough, but sometimes the lack of a dimple does not indicate I didn't know better, just the lesser of two evils that day. My Charvet and Kiton ties on the other hand, have a nice width at the knot, and dimples are all but certain with those. I noticed the Brioni ties fair well also.

Any brand recommendations, regarding sufficient width at the knot?

If it dimples properly, it dimples properly. I'm not about to spend 20 minutes in the morning tying and retying my tie to get a perfect dimple.

Near perfection every time - Panta, Charvet, Attolini, Drakes.

Me neither. More than 1.5 minutes, I need to choose a different tie.

I've given up even trying on my 3.25 inch ties from PRL and BB.  I get a nice dimple easily on my Robert Talbott ties.

My 3.5" BB ties dimple decently, but I have the same PRL tie in navy and burgundy and cannot do anything with it.  Spoo, I eagerly await your video telling us your secret.

If I'm going somewhere formal then I go for a dimple.  If it's a casual type setting then I let the tie decide if it wants a dimple or not.

Don't give it too much decision making power.

You own the tie.  The tie doesn't own you.
