    I'm curious what other guys think of tie dimples. I for one, hate them and love a perfectly smooth tie below the knot. It looks clean to me. People say they have a hard time getting the dimple, but I have a hard time avoiding it.

    Thoughts?

    A "dimple" is a "must" for me--works well with seven-fold ties (e.g., Charvet, Kiton, Stefano Ricci).

    Whether on a cute face, hot ass, chiseled chin, or beautiful tie, a dimple is a must!

    Haven't worn a tie since my corporate days. Never liked them. I single handedly casual-ized my international company, arguing that it was too hot in Florida to wear one. I tried dressing according to how would be dressed the people I'd be seeing. If I was visiting offices to interview more casual types I dressed down. When in stuffier offices (and I dealt with the largest firms in the area) I reluctantly wore one.

    I really wanted just a clip on because that thing came off as soon as I left their office. But I thought it a bit too nerdy even for me.

    But now a dimple? I had no idea that thing had a name. I thought it was just a tie pleat or a wrinkle in tie. Can we rename to dignify crows feet next? How about we call them elongated dimples radiating from the outside corners of aging eyes.

    No, that's not crows feet. Those are my eye dimples.

    Required. Half Windsor knot. Though I suppose on a very modern skinny tie something simpler would look best. Any examples?

    The Half Windsor is my knot of choice when wearing a tie. It looks best on my skinny frame and matches my face. And I always go for the dimple.

    I prefer without the dimple, but don't get upset if there is one.

    Dimple. They are easy to do, with just a little practice. Kind of like the squeeze technique. Master this and you'll look great whenever you're wearing a coat & tie.

    Definitely a dimple, it adds life to a tie, especially if it's made of pure silk!

    Does Regina rhyme with vagina?

    Sort of. I pronounce it "Ri-jeye-na". The last two syllables rhyme but the first vowel is a short "i" as opposed to a short "a" but I've certainly heard other people say it as a complete rhyme.

    Correction: after thinking about it more I guess I say Ruh-jeye-na.

    I usually wear a double windsor. I work in capital markets and I rarely see a single windsor on anyone. Not that I don't like the look, it's just not an arena that is wise to stand out or go terribly against the grain fashion-wise. Where you make up ground is having everything fit flawlessly. A perfectly tailored suit doesn't need help.

    I don't mind the skinny tie on some guys, but I tend to think far fewer people are capable of wearing it than actually wear it. My frame definitely, definitely does not allows for it. I associate suits (if I can be that general...) with determination, confidence, conservatism, etc... and skinny ties just don't fit that ticket nearly as well as a normal tie. In a more fashion forward environment, sure.

    Lastly, I am surprised at the number of pro-dimple responses. I will start wearing one! It seems I've been making a minor fashion faux pas....

    Definitely needs a dimple. No dimple looks like you don't know how to tie your tie.
