The Kingston Tie Knit Pattern is a modern take on the classic and simple necktie. A great accessory for a sharp professional look or a casual accessory.
A tie has been a staple in fashion since the early 20th century because many professions required a necktie as a mandatory part of the dress code. However, now-a-days ties are a statement piece and have a variety of styles and colors.
The Kingston Tie Knit Pattern’s simplicity lends itself to being as unique as you are. Whether you are looking for something muted with a neutral tone or something bold and fun this tie is for you.
