I wear my knit ties pinned these days. I am not one for the American custom of wearing a tie bar, however the silk knit tie is narrower than other neckties and leaves a man little choice but to pin his if he does not care for the blades blowing in the breeze. There may be a maker who sews one but I do not know of a knit with a keeper, that piece of silk that holds the rear blade in place on well-made conventional neckties, and too many maker's labels, which can sometimes perform the same trick even though they are usually attached too haphazardly to do it for long, are actually sewn on sideways. Fortunately, the knit tie itself is a loosely constructed thing and a gold safety pin will slide through front and back without damaging the silk. The same pin can be used to pin a shirt collar of course, which is handy, and only one is necessary in the jewelry kit as a pinned shirt collar with a pinned necktie would be too much.
Those readers who never get enough of ASW may be interested to know that I will be writing two pieces each week for the Lifestyle section of Forbes online. One regular post day will be Saturday and I am open to suggestions as to the other. I will provide a link when the first one is up later this week.
