Men In Style: The Tie - Flashback Fashion?



I don't know how many ladies can say this, but my father was and still is someone I look up to as an influencer of my style.

He's never followed trends. He knows what looks good on him and what doesn't compliment him. Most importantly he always takes care in how he looks, the whole look. He taught me that how you dress says a lot about yourself, its an expression of who you are. He didn't really say it out loud, but he showed me by example.


What has me on this tangent? As long as I can remember my father has worn a tie at least 3 out of the 7 days of the week and I've never seen him wear a knit tie.

So I had to look into it. Turns out knit ties were all the rage in the 80's. Is this a flashback trend that you will be wearing?

Omg knit ties , I was in catholic elementary school in the 80s and I remember all the boys wearing them. I think this is a trend that should die.
