Order bespoke and you can get it as wide as you want. Then you'll look as good as this guy:

I'm well stocked on kipper ties thanks.

Never heard of bespoke knitted ties.

Tom Ford's knit ties are pretty wide. And they have pointy tips.

Ehhh come to it...I don't think I have either. Just wanted to use that picture.

 

Yes, the Tom Ford ones are wide. I've seen some RLPL wider ones too. 

 

I also picked up some E. Marinella knits in Italy a few months ago that were fairly wide. Though not quite as wide as the Tom Ford.

Doesn't the Knottery stock 3.5in?
post #32901 of 37392

Looked up Tom Ford... 8.5cm! That is as wide as my normal ties.

I was thinking 8cm. Most are 7cm.

Do most of you go with 7?

Sozzi knits are 3" (about 8 cm) and they are perfect. Dense weave too, which prevents them from being too transparent.

Looking on their site and they are listed as 6.5cm. Have things changed?

The ones from NMWA are 8cm. I suppose it depends on who is commissioning them.

I just want a black, 8cm, non-curvy pointed knit tie in silk. Is that so much to ask? :censored:

What color shirts go well with mid-olive colored chinos?

Burgundy colored shoe-wear seem to match well with olive chinos.

Currently sold out, but Knottery ties are well regarded here, and they are 8.5 cm. Kent Wang has them in 7 cm.

Burgundy shoes match well with olive chinos for sure.

 

Light blue. Navy. White. Cream. Light pink.

Yes, I have a couple.

I have a pair of loafers for which my instep isn't an ideal fit. Usually, you'd stretch out shoes at a cobbler's to make more room width wise (horizontally). But has anyone tried to do this to make more room for the feet vertically rather than horizontally? I know this isn't an ideal solution, and I don't expect wonders, but thought I'd ask.

8cm is too wide for a knit. Doesn't look good, like wearing a shawl instead of a tie. 7cm is ok.
