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?

Why? Looks like the wearer tried too hard?

When you wear it without being told to.

I just started wearing suits/ties daily and I cant get my ties to dimple anywhere near as well as some of the pics in this thread. Hopefully it gets easier with practice!

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.

I don't like dimples, but I don't wear kipper ties and dimples look a bit daft of smaller ties. A dimple in a kravat is acceptable

This.... please!

 

Also, always dimple. The Steve Harvey video posted earlier says everything you need to know about dimples.... if no dimples, then you are THAT GUY. Sorry!

I prefer dimples as I believe this adds more definition to the tie, however, the tie width and knot play a factor in applying it effectively. For consistancy there's always the dimple tool or clip bigstar[1].gif

My tie always has a dimple, bugs me for it to not have one.

never!

 

I guess a dimple looks good if our trying for the spazatura look everyone goes on about.
