Or Kent, or Simple, or Small Knot. For being such a simple knot, it sure does have a lot of names. It is another knot that begins with the back side of the tie facing outwards. It does form a fairly symmetrical knot but even this early in the day I have found it difficult to keep it in place. There’s a pretty good chance I’ll be switching it over to a four-in-hand before long.

The tie is a Tommy Hilfiger. If you look at the right side where the knot should be going under the collar, you can see the tell tale contrast tail of the tie. One of the cool things about Hilfiger ties. The shirt is a Charles Tyrwhitt and the sweater is Lands End.

Another ode to the Fangirl Suit Report. Check out Gratefull’s descriptions and recap of Stephen Colbert’s wardrobe on a weekly basis. Fun stuff!

Today’s tie is a solid purple with a basketweave design from TM Lewin. The shirt is also TM Lewin. I was a little wary of adding a purple pocket square and overdosing the purple so I went with a plain, white instead with a very simple TV (presidential?) fold.
