Knit ties: point bottom or square bottom - Page 3

post #31 of 65
If it helps the end result of a look, then I'm pretty much open to wearing anything within reason.

I prefer the square bottom but do not mind (and own a few) pointed bottomed knit ties. The taboo isn't always intrinsic to the item itself, it is as often how you wear it.

As you can see Ken, Sam, Chorse + others in the business, THERE IS a market for the pointed knit ties.

Oh, don't worry, I have both styles in the works.

I'd say it's the equivalent of a knotched lapel DB jacket....it's just....weird.

A point bottomed knit tie is.. well... pointless.

I agree.

You're missing an option up there: I don't yet wear knit ties, but when I get one, it'll definitely be square-bottomed.

He'd work for the ACLU if he could. QED.

I started out with squares, but have worked my way up to pointed. Maybe there's hope for Manton and Iammatt yet.

We will never sink to your sordid level.

Then again, I used to think I would never wear a knit tie, so who knows.

If you're ready to go tieless, iammatt has some extra chest hair.

I would need it.

Actually, he has criticised me in the past for buttoning my shirts too high. It's because I am embarrassed by my smooth chest.

BTW, Slanted Door was goooooooooooood. Chump.

It's not a joke if it is what you want.

This is how Drakes describes the wholesome goodness of their knits:

"Ties knitted on ancient wooden frames, authentic crunchy handle with contrast spots individually sewn by hand. The ultimate knit tie. Think of Michael Caine in "Get Carter"!"

This leads to another important question, often addressed in life:

Crunchy or smooth?
