Tie Week

This week we're celebrating ties—the quintessential accessory in men's style—with five days of goods and tips revolving around your neck.

  • Frank Sinatra, no slouch in the style department, favored knit ties.
Enduring Classic

The Knit Tie

Some items become classics simply because they've got some history, while others, like a knit tie, attain the status simply because they work well on everyone. Young and old, traditional or trendy—no matter your personal style, this one tie projects that you're a man who appreciates the simplicity of timeless style. So subtle is the textured, square-tipped tie, one can and should wear it with just about anything, no matter the season. Chinos and a lightweight shirt? Check. A three piece flannel suit? Sure thing. It can even luxe up your jeans and rumpled oxford. And while you can find them in wool and cotton, it's hard to beat the relaxed refinement of a good silk in navy or black. This one is from Garbstore, is handmade in England and measures in just shy of three inches. Want your tie a tad slimmer or wider? We've got you covered.

$69 at Garbstore
