I just the love the tie, it's design, the feel, the fit, the length, when tied right, it is quite versatile and seems to do a good job of complementing a shirt and ultimately one's outfit. Everyone of my bargain hunting discoveries are always immersed in a story, so with regards to the knit tie, here goes:
I was walking from a pc zone stall at the market when my eyes happened to catch a glimpse of a sign that read 'second hand clothing'. That alone made me give it a second look. This place was a small nook which couldn't fit more than 10 people at a time. Outside hanging on the railing were 3 hangers with a large stash of ties. I just had to walk towards the ties and rummage through them to find something that would interest me. I was not interested until I ran into one knit tie. And then I just had to keep searching until I had 3. The navy one featured in this post, a deep red, and, a burgundy and mustard one. Not to mention I was quite pleased with myself because I once again lived up to the 'King of Bargains' title I profess to hold. I only paid R2 a pop.
Since it's a Monday and dress up day for going to work I decided to feature the navy knit tie. And herewith below a few more examples:
