Love Your Dimple: The Secret Tie Weapon
"Yes, a snugly knotted tie will look perfectly fine without one," says GQ senior fashion editor Lisa Cohen. “But the dimple’s the finishing touch that pulls it all together. We consider it essential.” Here’s how to take your look from passable to polished.
1. When you’re almost done tying your tie, press your thumb against your index finger just beneath the knot, so the fabric forms a crease.
2. Pull down the narrow end of the tie to tighten the dimple, and slide up the knot.
3. Finesse either side of the dimple to accentuate the fold and set it in place.
