Neckties: A Discussion Thread - Page 54post #796 of 10822/14/16 at 5:17amI had some success this morning using a Pratt knot with the Drake's. Not the best dimple I have ever seen but at least decent. I do think that it is amazing that a knot very similar to others would get a different result. Must be that somehow my hands are fooled into doing the right thing!post #797 of 10822/16/16 at 5:00amQuote:Originally Posted by ericgereghty
do you have any pics of unlined bows by chance?
Thank you for your patience while we made this bow tie and took the photos.
This bow tie is an unlined one made with a Macclesfield printed twill silk.
We left the top half unpressed in this photo so you can see the difference.
Here you can see the unlined inside of the bow tie:
Both sides have now been pressed:
The finished unlined bow tie (Note if the vertical height of the ends is taller the unlined aspect of the tie will show more with a soft unstructured look which I have seen worn in Paris):post #798 of 10822/16/16 at 6:49amThread Starterpost #799 of 10822/16/16 at 8:29ampost #800 of 10822/16/16 at 8:34ampost #801 of 10822/18/16 at 8:35amQuote:
I think there is a common belief that this is a difficult tie to combine.
IMHO, a combination such as the one in the above picture is more appropriate, because the golden / yellowish elements of the tie can be easily "incorporated" in the beige frame offered by a sport coat like the one pictured.
The first proposition has a higher contrast, which is very welcome and becoming in certain cases, but not in this one!
At the end of the day, wear it as you feel so, we merely give suggestions as you requested.
Wear it in health.

A knit tie buying opportunity has just been discovered, and you may check it out at the recently-started thread on knit ties:
Dimitrispost #805 of 10822/26/16 at 8:40pmpost #806 of 10822/27/16 at 5:40ampost #807 of 10822/27/16 at 9:01pmYep, I'd stay away from Lands' End grenadines. 3" (which is what the LE site lists them as) is just too skinny in most cases. Also, at such a cheap price (current sale price of $56.99), I'd surmise they have a poor quality interlining and construction. Better to just spend an extra $20-$40 on what is known to be a well-constructed grenadine with a high quality wool lining, which means better knots, will hold its shape better, longer lifespan of the tie, etc.

Hoping to revive the thread, what are your thoughts on this tie?
It's a 3in from Brioni's current collection. I was thinking about picking it up for spring and because I only have 1 SF approved purple tie. I can't find any images of this exact tie with a suit which is what's holding me back. I'm going for a look something like this.
Any an all feedback and discussion is welcome, thank you all in advance!post #809 of 10823/16/16 at 8:20pmpost #810 of 10823/16/16 at 8:31pmQuote:
Thanks, I thought it might be a tad too busy, especially since I tend to dress more conservatively. I tend to prefer the classic stripe ties compared to ones with varying widths.
