Knit Tie in Mottled Blue and Brown Silk - Fort Belvedere

Not all Knit Ties are alike

High quality knit ties are available in two relative varieties: soft ties have a more flexible, smooth feel and Cri de la Soie ("cry of the silk") ties have a stiffer, almost crunchy feel to the knit.

Here, we are offering you the luxurious latter variety in a mottled blue and brown. It takes a number of unique steps to create these superb knitted ties.

What makes this knit tie special?

1. Special Old-World Swiss Silk Yarn. To create a one-of-a-kind Cri de La Soie tie, Fort Belvedere sources a special heavy silk yarn that is spun, dyed and customized in the Alp.

2. Made on 100-year-old knitting machine. The yarn is specifically made to harmonize with a rare, 100-year-old knitting machine.

3. Flat Knitted vs. Round Knitted. The yarns are knitted flat in a painstakingly slow process that can only be directed by skilled craftsmen.

4. Hand-Finished. Once the knitting process is complete,  the knitted silk is sewn by hand down the center seam.

5. Shaped on wooden mold. To get the ties their shape they are individually applied to a wooden mold, where they remain for a few days to form the ideal shape.

Last but not least, the top and bottom of the tie are sewn shut, labels are attached, and final tie is ready for wearing. Extensive quality control assures that each tie produced with high attention to detail. 

We're proud to offer such a unique, high-quality Cri de la Soie knit tie that is produced using traditional methods - and without a doubt, one will be a great addition to your wardrobe!

Knit Tie Style Tips

For ideal results, we recommend using a four in hand knot for a knit tie - most other knots create a bulky result. Traditionally, knit silk ties have a casual character, but today formal dress codes have changed and you have more room to express your individual style. Consider a stiffer Cri de Soie tie for a crisper look and soft knit ties for more relaxed combinations. 

This Fort Belvedere Cri de Soie silk tie will go well with your Shetland, Donegal or Saxony tweed sportscoat, as well as all kind of brown tones. Due to its effect, the color looks rich and a bit more casual than a solid knit tie. Paired with a vest and suede shoes, it is the perfect casual tie for the fall-winter season. Since this variety of tie is a bit stiffer than most other knitted ties, you can pop up the tie knot slightly to create a more sophisticated look, similar to when you use a collar pin.

Overall, this classic blue and brown mottled knit tie is special and perfect for the advanced tie collection. If you already have the solid and dotted knit ties, this is the tie for you.

Dimensions

147cm by 7cm; 58" by 2 3/8" - 2 3/4" As our knit ties are knitted flat and shaped on wood, they contract as they are being taken off.

Over time the silk will relax and the tie will get a bit longer and wider. Keep in mind this is a flexible hand made product so those dimensions are approximate measurements

Proper knit tie storage

As with all neckwear, this tie should never be stored while knotted. Hanging storage will eventually cause the tie to stretch, so the qualities of this tie will be best preserved by storing them rolled, as seen in the picture, or flat. 

Signature green gift box

This traditional silk knit tie will arrive in a heavy, classic Fort Belvedere gift box for you or your recipient to enjoy. Furthermore, consider saving the box for travel or storage of your purchase.
