If Sesame Street taught us anything as children, it’s that it’s hip to be a square. Maybe it was just the bright colors and catchy beats doing their job, but we never forgot that whimsical advice. Maybe that’s why we’re having such a love affair with this square-bottomed tie from The Knottery. Or maybe it’s because of the deliciously slubby texture of the Japanese cotton, or the gorgeous indigo dye. Whatever the reason, we can imagine all sorts of outfits that would be made better by the addition of this guy– with a sweater on the weekends, or a blazer for date night, it’s an instant classic. Not unlike those Sesame Street hits of yore. Get it here.
