  • How To Get A Tie Dimple

    Hallmarks of a quality tie part 4

    Choose what kind of a quality tie you want:

    There are two types of a tie, a lined or unlined tie. Most ties have a tip lining to simply cover up their interlining which is oftentimes very thick and of poor quality. If your tie is untipped the tip is thinner because you simply have the outer shell fabric without the extra layer of interlining. It takes more time and skill to have an untipped tie than a tipped tie. If you like a heavier tip, you should get a tipped tie, because an untipped tie is simply thinner. Some people think it is flimsy look, in my opinion, it is airier and a little lighter and especially great for spring and summer seasons.

    Hallmarks of a quality tie, number 7: Stitch

    You can find two ways to stitch a high-quality tie. One is the so-called loop stitch because it shows a loop at the end. One end going back to the other end leaving an additional reserve for the thread so the tie can stretch without ripping the thread. The other way to sew a tie is to simply have a thread and a knot at the end and to leave a reserve of the thread. In my opinion, the loops are just slightly better. At the end of the day what really counts is the flexibility and you get that with the stitch as well. The only problem is that the knot is not big enough, you can pull it through the hole and the tie can come undone or even worse, it rips.

    Hallmarks of a quality tie, number 4: Construction of a tie

    The traditional way to cut a tie is the so-called three fold tie. It is called that way because a tie is folded three times, one on the inside, the second one over and over again so you get a closed seam on the edge. The sevenfold ties became popular. All seven fold means is that your tie was folded seven times and it does not have an interlining so it is all silk which means your tie was produced in a more wasteful way. The hand and knot of a seven-fold tie are just not as beautiful as the one of a three-fold tie with an interlining. There a lot of different ties, four-fold ties, five-fold ties, sevenfold, eightfold, nine fold and six-fold. Do not get fooled by numbers, if you choose a cheaper silk and the knot does not look good, it does not matter how many folds your tie has, what matters is the look and the feel and the quality of the materials used.

  • “Peaky Blinders” Shows Why We Wouldn’t Mind The Revival Of 1920s FashionA Guide To The Flat Cap

    What Is The Flat Cap?

    The flat cap is one of the most overlooked men's headgears ever. But you may have seen people wear it a lot in period movies. Many years ago, the flat cap was the favorite headgear of English men, especially those who liked hunting and who had a thing for pieces made of tweed. More recently, in the 1990s, the flat cap saw a decline in its rep as it became the staple headwear of rebellious boy band members with addiction issues and oldies who were starting to lose their sartorial abilities.
