The classic knitted tie is making a comeback, offering up a preppy look for the modern era. You can buy cheap polyester or wool ones here and there, but for something with more class, check out these Boden silk knitted ties look pretty tasty.
Choose from contrast stripes or the spotted ones pictured above, all 100 per cent silk, with a silk backing for reinforcement. Widths aren't offered, but the shot of someone wearing one shows a pretty slim profile, reminiscent of the early 1960s.
