Black Knit Tie

It is said there is only 1 solid black item that is truly accepted in a full way in the Ivy [within Trad/Ivy/ Prep] world. This is the black knit tie. It is is a very interesting thing, this tie being the one single solid black item unabashedly accepted in the Ivy realm. I have heard that the only solid black item J. Press has every sold is a solid black knit tie.

The black knit tie I am wearing in this photo is a black silk knit tie from Lands' End. It is a nice 2.75'' at it's widest point. I paired this with a red university stripe and a gray herringbone tweed sport coat. A bit of a bold pairing.
