I absolutely love these knit ties from J. Press. Crunchy, thick and full of texture. Simple, beautiful classic colors in wonderful silk. The width is very nice coming in at 2.25 at the bottom tip. Because, on a knit tie the tip is a bit more narrow, just above the tip, on the main body the width at its widest is a bit under 2.5. Not too wide, not too skinny. Just right. Classic, timeless. Perfect for a father with young children who like to grab, pull and play with your necktie.
