Since I've started reading on this board, I've become (too?) conscious of ties and, in particular, they way they are tied. Needless to say, there's a variety of styles co-existing (the more European and fashionable thick tie/loose knot versus the 80's leftover thin tie/tight knot, etc.). In the course of this, I've come to appreciate the effort put in by the wearer of well-dimpled ties (although there seems to be in some quarters men who eschew dimples -- seemingly trying to create a smooth stretch of silk coming out of the knot -- I've notice this a lot with professional athletes such as American football players). Nonetheless, to me, there is something disconcerting about a perfect broad, deep dimple. Somehow it's too perfect and oddly distracting. Am I alone in this feeling? Maybe I'm thinking too much. Any thoughts?
