A solid burgundy one. Or a black one.

The other thing about the Kamakura ones was that the width was 8 cm (which is about 3") and I don't know what the golden rule says, but isn't 3" a bit too big for a knit tie?

Match it to the lapel width on your jackets. (Make sure you measure it correctly.) I suppose you could do it the other way around i.e. look for a jacket with lapel width to match your tie width.

Incidentally I have never had a knit tie in silk that doesn't come loose at the knot repeatedly. Whereas wool and cotton ones stay looking good without constant attention.


some sort of banal legitimacy

That's a good tip - I prefer wool and cotton as well...

Maybe the Kamakura will match my new BB jacket, since the lapels one that one is wide as hell.

I find a knitted tie needs a slightly chunky weave, even in silk to stay in place.  I do not have any problem with Nick Bronson ties in that regard, whereas a knitted tie in a fine weave will loosen as you say.

Is it a 70s BB, Sanch? If so... I'm glad you're keeping it and making it work. I love a good Boom Years jacket but I have a soft spot for the 70s look when it's done right... I have two 70s Anderson Little jackets, a navy blazer and a madras, and while they have wide lapels I still love to wear them... The blazer needs padding taken out of the shoulders though...

Re: Timothy Leary tie question

You need a nice "crunchy" silk knit and it will keep the knot. Got a black one from Paul Stuart as a gift- perfection.
