Heading Casual
I find this cashmere tie difficult to wear. It’s a bit thinner than the ties I usually like, and too thin for the lapels on most of my jackets. I also find the lining kind of stiff, so it doesn’t dimple and drape as much as I’d like. However, I like the pattern and it’s beautiful to touch. 
So, I decided to pair it with this army surplus work shirt that I’ve had for years. I also tied it in a double FIH, with the front blade slipped between the two loops; which is known as a Prince Albert. The alternative is to slip it behind both loops, known as a Victoria. Then, I gave it a bit of a twist. Playing with it this way is something I can get away with, not being in a business environment. It also served to make the tie appear wider on my chest. I encourage everyone to get their fingers up into the knot and play around with the tie as you’re tying it. It’ll help you learn and experiment, in your quest to find the knot(s) you like best.
