An oldie-but-goodie retro item that keeps popping up on our radar? The knit tie. Sure, it had its heyday in the 80's but it's been sneaking back onto the scene for quite some time. And if Goldfinger can sport a silk knit tie, any gentleman with keen aesthetic sense and the right amount of swagger can replicate this style.

Knit ties are lightweight (okay for warmer temps), squared on the bottom, and can be twisted into a small tie-knot, whether you prefer a full windsor or a four-in-hand. Paired with a lightweight cardigan or sports coat, it's an accessory that will surely perk up an ordinary outfit with preppy panache. A great addition to your wardrobe if you're looking to do something subtle and different with your look. GQ heralds the striped knit tie as a must-have this spring.
