Dimples on Ties... - Page 5
It boils down to personal preference. I think of dimples as more formal, and go without when wearing a tie casually.
I almost always wear a half windsor knot, which is easy to make a nice single dimple with.
Not meaning to derail the thread, but your reply makes me curious: When do you wear a tie casually?
When I first tried to dimple my ties I couldn't do it well because I wasn't using enough tie material to create it. It's hard to explain. To get Spoo's deep dimples you just have to "uncover" more of the narrow blade of the tie, so you get more cloth on the dimple itself. Try to pull the wide blade forward away from the narrow one.
