    I like a single lopsided dimple. It's a traaaaap!

    +2 It's definitely a trap.

    Depends on the tie. Some of my ties have never given me a dimple. Others do it naturally on the first try, including the tie I am wearing today.

    I don't care if the dimple is off center.

    I usually get it right on the first try; however, if I don't, then oddly it takes several attempts before I get it right.
    Same here. Nice to know I'm not the only one.

    I can't vouch for the quality of their merchandise, but the folks at Bachrach sure know how to tie neckwear.

    Brooks Brothers does a good job as well. http://s7d4.scene7.com/is/image/Broo...5,0&iccEmbed=0

    I couldn't care less as long as it isn't totally smooth like a clip-on.

    Not really, except I have one tie that refuses to form a nice dimple.

    Why the hell would you want a single cycloptic tie dimple?

    I do dimplets, two of them, every time.


    why the hell would you want two dimplets?

    I'm getting better at getting the dimple but it isn't always perfect. It really depends on the thickness of the tie or how it's made.

    I figure if the dimple kind of looks like a vagina then I'm good to go.
