Knitted wool has been an exciting niche in women's fashion since Coco Chanel and the 1920s. Modern designers such as Sonia Rykiel continued the trend. Men's fashion has mainly used knitted wool for safe fashion such as jumpers and scarves, even if Jimi Hendrix made it really cool to wear wool! Knitted silk has been used more creatively in modern men's fashion, particularly for upmarket T-shirts. Italian design in particular also made knitwear more fashionable for men, starting in the 1950s. Knitted fabrics are terrific, full of texture and visual allure. All the more reason to invest in a few knitted ties for yourself. Go for both wool and silk in your knitted accessories, knowing that they will always catch people's attention. A knitted tie is a versatile accessory, easily worn at any time of year and with a host of different fabrics, light and heavier. Tieroom offers a wide selection of solid-color knitted ties in a range of hues. Equally fetching are our striped ties, with horizontal stripes looking particularly collegiate.
