Over the past year, the knit tie is seeing a rebirth. But how and when to wear it? Aaron Marino of alpha m. discusses that knit ties are made with cotton, wool, and silk.
They are not all created equal, namely with the weave. Look for a tight weave. The width varies too- look for anything over 2 inches for not too small or big. Alpha thinks this tie is too casual for suits; however, knit ties are acceptable with suits. It's great with a spread or point collar as well as Four in Hand knot because of the bulkier fabric.
Layer it and pair it as it's the perfect casual tie that you can dress up an outfit. Denim shirt are exceptional with the knit tie. If you don't already have one, start by getting one. Black is versatile.
