Kin by John Lewis Mercer Knitted Tie

knitted tie - above the ankles

I’m pretty sure we all know what knitted ties are by now, thanks to knitted ties many people are now leaving their silk ties, which have now become “bland” and “normal”, left at the back of the draw. Knitted ties are different; they usually will attract some attention from average Joe’s. Their loosely woven look allows a nice and friendly persona.

Also known as the sock tie, the knitted ties usually have a blunt straight end as opposed to the conventional pointed end. Almost all knitted ties can be used both for smart and casual. They are usually made from silk but I prefer the polyester ones.

The Kin by John Lewis Mercer Knitted Tie comes in a variety of colours, from navy to black to gold and red. It’s only 5cm in width making it pretty much the perfect fit.

These are being sold by John Lewis for £19.50 – you could probably get them online cheaper maybe for £10 or so.
