Putting the 'dimple' in your tie

Putting the 'dimple' in your tie

The 'dimple' in a tie is the short crease in the main tie at the very top - just going under the knot. It adds structure to the tie and adds an element of sophistication. If you look at members of the Royal family or Prime Minister David Cameron they all put a dimple in their tie knot.

Adding a 'dimple' to your tie knot is easily done - once you get the hang of it. To add a dimple just gently fold the tie as you pull the tie knot tight. You need to hold your finger on the 'fold' all the way through the knot if you want the dimple to still be in place when you tighten it.

The perfect dimple will be in the centre of the tie knot and not cause either side of the tie to fold over to reveal the back of the tie.

As with everything - practice makes perfect - and once you get the hang of it you will never tie your tie any other way! .
