Skinny knit ties are available in two relative varieties: soft ties have a more flexible, smooth feel and Cri de la Soie ("cry of the silk") ties have a stiffer, almost crunchy feel to the knit. Here, we are offering you a soft, skinny variety in vibrant blue with mottled silver grey by Fort Belvedere. It takes a number of steps to create these knitted pieces of art.
To create a one-of-a-kind skinny knit tie, we source a special silk yarn that is spun, dyed and customized to harmonize specifically with a rare, 70-year-old knitting machine. The yarns are knitted in a seamless tube shape, using a painstakingly slow, single-color process that can only be directed by skilled craftsmen. Each machine has a wheel which determines the pattern and texture of the tie. These wheels have to be filed by hand on a regular basis in order to ensure top quality knit ties. Once the knitting process is complete, the knitted silk is individually applied to a wooden mold, where they remain for a few days. The ties are then ironed and steamed to create the desired shape, and finished by sewing the top and bottom and the application of labels. Extensive quality control assures that each tie produced with a high attention to detail.
We're proud to offer such a unique, high-quality skinny knit tie that is produced using traditional methods - and without a doubt, one will be a great addition to your slim tie collection!

For ideal results, we recommend using a four in hand knot for skinny knit ties, because anything else will look bulky on such a narrow tie. Traditionally, knit silk ties have a casual character, but today formal dress codes have changed and you will have more room to express your individual style by pairing this tie with suits.
This vibrant blue tie with silver grey feautres a faint diagonal stripe and was designed to be worn with skinny lapels that were popular in the 1960's and are once again heavily in style. Our mottled knit neckwear creates a rich look because of the two tones, without the look of a solid tie. Unlike darker blue ties, this you make more of a statement with this tie and hence it is well suited to casual outfits. It will lend an edgy touch to dressed up sweater vests, cardigans jeans or buttondown shirts.
Overall, this skinny knit tie is a perfect evolution of a solid necktie with a slim look.
As with all neckwear, this tie should never be stored while knotted. Hanging storage will eventually cause the tie to stretch, so the qualities of this tie will be best preserved by storing them rolled, as seen in the picture, or flat.
This skinny silk knit tie will arrive in a heavy, classic Fort Belvedere gift box for you or your recipient to enjoy. Furthermore, consider saving the box for travel or storage of your purchase.
