I've been doing some reading up on ties lately as I was wondering what causes one tie to knot better than another and what are other markers of tie quality. I've read in multiple places that it has to do with the lining. This makes perfect sense to me as I've never really been able to get a good dimple out of my 2 Chipp grenadines (navy and burgundy), and the lining of those has been criticized in the past.
Sorry to play Devils Advocate but if the lining is wool with a cotton cover then how can you say the lining is 100% wool? Sounds as if its X% wool and Y% cotton for those ones.It's all about the lining .
1. The material content . You want the most wool in a lining as it has the most give (we use 100% wool)
2. The thickness and taper of the lining ( we add a cotton lining cover to the wool on some of our ties which adds to the hand and the knot)
