knit picky.

lately i've been really into knit ties. i've been diggin' the look that they have and i really like how the texture of a knit tie looks with the rest of the outfit. mostly i like to change it up and this is one to do just that without it looking weird, stupid or like you're trying too hard. and it’s totally a detail thing, i’m all about details. there are generally two types of knit ties out there, silk and wool. i'm sure there are other material options out there, but these two are the most common and are going to be what you see most of. if you don't have any knit ties you should look into picking a few up. i suggest you snag them cheap over at the tie bar. they start at 15 bucks and you won't be out that much if you aren't into it, but i doubt that will be the case. check out knits my friends, add some dimension and depth to your wardrobe.

general knot & co.

made in the u.s.a. i think this is my favorite four-word phrase right now. there's just something about talents and skills being focused on perfecting a craft that you have to admire and respet. Although, higher craftsmanship comes at a higher price, the quality is unmatched. 

General knot co. was created by Andrew Payne, after directing design teams for companies like Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Levi's. His goal was to bring quality manufacturing back to the United States, and he wasn't kidding.

 

The company produces some of the greatest ties, bow ties, pocket squares, and belts around, and they do it with classic style. Using a blend of modern and vintage fabrics to create unique designs, General Knot co. makes very limited quantities of remarkable quality.  

I suggest you take a closer look at General Knot & co. even if you're a bargain shopper like me. It's always a good idea to find new ways to improve your style, seek inspiration and support companies that focus on quality.

That being said, I'll leave you with some words from the man himself:

Cheat Sheet for ties and pocket squares.

I came across this guide to tie and pocket square styles based on specific events/occasions, put out by J.Crew. I think they did a pretty good job with it, adding images to help visualize the presentation rather than simply describing it. Although there will always be events that don't fall under one of these basic categories, this is still a great reference to help point you in the right direction for using ties and pocket squares in varying degrees of formality.

the tie bar.

Looking for a new skinny tie? Maybe a bowtie per chance? What about a pocket square? In need of a set of cufflinks? What's your sock game looking like? Have you ever even worn a tie bar? If these questions have caused you to question your adequacy, and you'd like to remedy your errors without breaking the bank, then you need to stop by The Tie Bar.

Don't just take my word for it though, you can see items from The Tie Bar on celebrities and in GQ. If that isn't credibility I don't know what is.

You can check out what The Tie Bar has to offer by clicking here.

etsy finds: Necktie & Tie Clip.

Etsy is a forgotten online mega store. You can find some great deals on Etsy. More importantly you can find one of a kind or completely custom things on the site. Today I was browsing a little and stumbled upon these two pieces. The black gingham necktie is classic and can bring a little something extra to your outfit without going crazy. Where you shine is your tie clip, but not literally. Gotti bling = bad & douchey. The octopus tie clip is a unique piece that brings you over the basic threshhold. Any one can wear a basic silver or gold tie clip and there's nothing wrong with that. But not everyone can get away with an octopus tie clip. drip drip.
