Most modern, and especially inexpensive ties have thick polyester interlinings and only allow for thick, bulky tie knots. On the other hand Fort Belvedere ties, uses all wool interlinings that are elastic and result into a fantastic knot. you need not be limited to only one shape. Elegant gentlemen such as Prince Charles, or John F. Kennedy preferred worn smaller, elegant four-in-hand tie knots. Fort Belvedere allows you to tie small, regular and big tie knots! Choose the correct size tie for your stature for small and normal size tie knots, or chose the next longer tie for Balthus or double Windsor knots.
This tie works well with charcoal, navy and blue but also light solids like khaki or stone. The pattern is subtle but noticeably different from a classic herringbone, making you stand out in a subtle way. it is recommended not to wear it with herringbone suits or shirts because the patterns would clash. Also avoid small houndstooth pattern, whereas solids, stripes and windowpanes all work well. Even checked sportcoats work as long as the patterns are different in size and color. A navy, green or burgundy blazer would be just as perfect as a seersucker jacket or three piece tweed suit.
Begin by untying the knot it in the opposite way you tied it; never store ties knotted! Roll it up for a day to allow the wrinkles to relax, and then hang on a tie rack in your closet.
This tie comes in a heavy Fort Belvedere gift box.
