Knitted ties have a special place in a man's wardrobe. They fill the void when the invitation states "business casual" yet you wish to wear a tie. A knitted tie adds a dash of panache, an updated fashion edge that a simple open shirt does not provide.
And knitted ties are not just for men. Designers routinely feature them in their collections both for men and for women seeking a masculine look.
The Okehampton Tie is worked in a crisp cotton/linen yarn and features a shaped design to provide a small neat knot.
