The easiest tie to travel with – creaseless, impervious to wear – the silk knit tie has long been a favorite of worldly gentlemen. It is also a favorite of traditionalists, because, summer and winter, it is always in style with a button down check shirt or colorful tattersall pattern. This season we offer a selection of both brighter warmer weather colors and darker all year favorites.
Carefully untie your tie when you remove it. It should come off the same way it went on, in reverse. Pulling the knot loose will tear the neckpiece, the third part of the tie construction. Hang it in your closet, unless it is a knit, which you should roll. A silk tie will lose its wrinkles if it is given rest in your closet and the help of gravity. Ties cannot be dry-cleaned, cannot be washed, and cannot be pressed. Either cover your tie when you eat, or prepare to replace it when it is soiled.
