    You asked, and I quote:
    You asked if it was acceptable. I gave you an example so you can take from it what you wish. I like it, but that doesn't mean its acceptable, although it is.

    I would not recommend so a big a tie boner (can we call these Spoo boner's from now on?). You don't to take out your CEO's eye.

    Spoo only won the contest of most pics that are completely inappropriate for meeting with a CEO in N. America, obviously.

    I hope the OP is trolling. And then he makes it worse saying he asked 'humbly'.
    If you were humble you would not need to say that you are big wheeling and meeting with so many CEOs.
    There are many generic, direct ways of asking the question without speaking about your high level meetings.
    And if you are that high on the food chain, you should know about tie dimples and that they are ubiquitous in terms of occasions.
    Have you seen ties without one? Blech.
    So, you are either completely ignorant(using kinder language than you deserve) or a troll.

    But, hey, at least Spoo posted some good pics so maybe we should thank you.

    I am sharing my view(OP request) and passing judgment(against request). 1/2 ain't bad considering the original post.

    Enter one of your meetings with this leading you around, you'll rattle some cages.

    Also notice the sexiest hint of the dimple is given.

    What a silly question to have asked in the first place.


    I doubt that the subject of this thread will make any difference in your quest to be " an entrepreneur trying to make big in the North American (mostly Canadian) business world." In fact it suggests that you are utterly unsuitable if you believe that a dimple in a tie has any relevance whatever.

    The dimple must be precised 19mm deep, and the knot must be canted to the right at 11.2 degrees to balance the pocket square in the left.

    Anything else is amateur hour and you just can't do business in America that way.

    FWIW. STR8 answer. Yes you should have a skew DFIH knot with a dimple and a boner in your tie to let the other CEO's you are still quite virile kinda guy and that you will be able to cope when it comes time to perform. Also dont forget the PS... very important.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Personally I'm not a big fan of the dimple and prefer to eliminate it, I'd also consider it more of a "hanging with friends" thing than a high level meeting. Then again, the CEOs I've met rarely care how every detail looks, they've got better things to spend time on than worrying about to dimple or not to dimple...Personally I'm not a big fan of the dimple and prefer to eliminate it, I'd also consider it more of a "hanging with friends" thing than a high level meeting.
