…You need to tie your own tie?

Tie

Being able to tie your own tie is like a passage into manhood. If you have a friend tie it for you, wear it, and then loosen it up enough to pull over your head and hang next to your other ties of shame, I’m sad to say you’re not yet a full grown man. Thankfully, Tie-a-Tie.net comes to the rescue with their guide to tying the Windsor, Half Windsor, Four in Hand, and Pratt. They’ve even got video tutorials if you can follow along with words and pictograms, and a brief description of what each knot says about your style. For example: The Windsor Know is a thick, wide and triangular tie knot that projects confidence. It would therefore be your knot of choice for presentations, job interviews, courtroom appearances etc. Truly a great resource for those looking to join the exclusive club of self made tie knot tiers.
