Quintessential Knit Ties: Comprehensive Discussion & Appreciation - Page 6

post #76 of 79

I currently exclusively wear knit ties; I have RLPL, Tom Ford and those from Lanvin.

 

Does anyone have any experience on Dunhill knit ties?They are made in Germany (similar to Hermes) and are from mulberry silk (apparently a high quality silk)

I bought a Dunhill tie 20 years ago with a nice conservative pattern - not sure how they are today. The construction was average and factory made.

Almost all silk is Mulberry silk - so in this case it is clever marketing only.

The leaf of the Mulberry tree or bush is fed to silk worms.

We grow mulberry for silk and fruit on our farm on the hill above our workshop in the mountains of Northern Thailand.

These photos are from yesterday when we were making cuttings to plant new trees. If you look carefully you can see that the first two photos have larger Mulberry leaves - these are for the silk worms to eat. The photo of the cuttings shows smaller leaves these Mulberry trees are for fruit. Our staff love Mulberry fruit so the smaller leaved variety will be planted near the workshop where they eat lunch. Along with mangoes, bananas, papayas and lots of other fruits...

Thanks for starting the thread, I do enjoy knit ties as well.

 

Going through your list:

- Square-end vs. pointed-end preferences: I prefer square-end. Even at work i still use those: true it's a tad more casual but with all the rest of your attire formal (e.g., shirt with cufflinks) it looks great. 

- Width: I like 7 cm 

- I like it crunchy but don't have a no strong point here.

- I wear both in winter and summer. 

 

Makers: Brooks Brothers and Charvet. I find Hermès ones "too crunchy". I googled Sozzi, I think it could be an interesting one to try out, thank you very much for sharing @Bespoke DJP.

Hi everyone,

With autumn upon us, I am expecting to see the new F/W offerings that known (and yet-to-be-known) on line vendors are going to carry.

Still waiting for some intel on Calabrese1924 knit ties which have great F/W propositions as well!

Thank you for sharing @Marco85, it seems a great tie! Can you specify please its width in cm?

Cheers,

Dimitris
