THE TEXTURAL TIE

When it comes to formal dressing, it’s the little details that count. Elevate your look with the simple addition of a knitted tie, says M&S.com menswear editor, Daniel Copley.

Typically English, rakishly charming and a favourite of Sean Connery’s 007, the knitted tie’s timeless appeal is a testament to its classic, understated design. At its low-key best, your knitted neckwear should be tied in a small, unfussy knot; take care to pinch the tie as you tighten it, ensuring a slight – but all-important - central dimple. Equally at home in your working wardrobe or as a finishing touch to an evening ensemble, go tonal by matching your knitted tie to your suit or knitwear for a sharp, textural contrast.
