Knit ties: No longer just for hipsters



Knittie The other day, my podmate Ernest Hooper noticed something unusual at the International Plaza Neiman Marcus: knit ties. Yes, the high-end department store, known for carrying items like this crystal-encrusted cupcake purse, now peddles the ultimate male hipster accessory.

Of course, these aren't the knit ties that your emo-loving, ReadyMade magazine-reading boyfriend would wear. These are 100-percent silk creations from by the French designer Charvet. They come in lilac, blue and black and are available here.

At first I thought, Maybe the ties are meant to be ironic, like trucker hats. But there's nothing ironic about the price: $145.

Divas, would you buy a knit tie for the man in your life? And guys, would you wear it?
