In the United Kingdom, wool and knitted ties are mostly worn in the countryside or they are worn by artists, writers, teachers or members of different colleges and regiments. This is because a knitted tie or a wool tie will always be considered less formal than a silk tie .
Usually these ties are made of:
– pure wool;
– a combination of wool and cashmere, wool and silk or cashmere and silk.
They are worn with:
– bright colour plain shirts:
– checked shirts, the most famous being the Tattersall shirt:
– tweed suits:
