Bespoke Post is a men’s lifestyle subscription box. While half of the selections are gender-neutral, many are also men-specific, as was the Knotted box for February. You can save 25% on your first Bespoke Post box with coupon code JOIN25.
For Knotted you could select from a variety of ties from Gilded Age.
Not being a great fan of patterned ties, my pick-three comprised three Gilded Age linen and cotton ties in modest shades. The weave is such that the white and dyed fabrics create a pleasant textured and washed look. The red they used was dark enough, however, that it didn’t devolve into a pink when inter meshed with the white.
All three selections (I also grabbed a nice light blue and midnight blue with spots) are matte finish, a stylish departure from the glossy and oft-overplayed silk tie look. They are slightly slimmer than most of my standard ties; just enough to be hip without having to be the guy wearing the skinny tie. One word of caution: they seem to hold a crease easily, so tie gently to avoid ironing (I learned to love collar stays and iron-free shirts long ago so am in no hurry to get that thing out). I plan to wear with my “soft” academic-style blazers and cardigans. They would also lend nice contrast to a leather jacket ensemble.
