Friday Style Debate: how do you dimple (or not)…

Time to debate!

tie styles

Of all the classic elements that men wear on a daily basis none are quite as unnecessary as the neck tie!  Completely decorative in nature it is there simply to provide a glimpse into the personality of the wearer.  With that in mind beyond the characteristics of tie itself the most telling aspect is how one goes about knotting the tie.  Three styles to choose from today:

Left – no dimple     Middle – the fjord-like dimple     Right – subtle dimple with a twisted tail

As you can tell from the title’s post my assumption is that you would dimple in some form or another.  From my vantage point it simply increases the visual interest of the knot by adding depth and a more fluid shape.  As for the twist – many assume it’s an accident and that the tail has simply spun out of control.  Not the case – the twist often adds a second dimple and allows more of the tie to be seen which can add to the visual interest.  Who wouldn’t want to see more of the beautiful prince of wales check tie that we see in the image above?

So what are you going to choose?

Let the debate begin…
