I was wasting time at the Robb Report site and came across this quote from bespoke tie maker...er...neck apparel maker John Kochis:Okay, if I see someone with a full windsor "they have it all together" doesn't spring to mind. The Duke certainly wore a four-in-hand (I generally use a Prince Albert/Victoria knot, actually, for a bit more knot thickness and length). And an off-center dimple may be chosen for a bit of insouciance. I might think someone with a perfect knot and dimple is simply OCD, not "impeccable". Pardon my rant. Now back to your regularly scheduled forum.
Quote:"A man reveals so much about his personality by the tie he chooses to wear and how he knots it," says Kochis, a 23-year retail veteran of Barneys New York and Charivari, who launched his signature neckwear collection in 1989. "He's either a leader or a follower, traditional or contemporary, meticulous or disorganized." What does the knot reveal? "If a man wears a spread collar with a four-in-hand knot, I know he doesn't have it all together. If the dimple is off-center he's almost there. And if the knot is neat and the dimple is centered, I know he's impeccable."
