stuff you should know


I can't remember where I saw this handy little guide, but everyone should know at least two knots by heart. I'm a big fan of the half-windsor. The best part about a tie is the way your girl adjusts it, giving you just enough time to realize that she's way out of your league.

I'm a proponent of the four-in-hand. It is simple, elegant and not too formal. It is my go to knot. And I've never been so lucky as to have a girl adjust my tie for me. They tend to fear intervening in my style. I guess it's the girls I fall for.

I've been needing this. All I know how to do is the four-in-hand, but I'm a big fan of the windsor. My bf doesn't wear a tie often, but next time he does, I'm totally going to try the windsor.

The only way I know how to tie a tie is just tie it like shoelaces. Thanks for the great guide, and thanks for glorifying us females..

I was just fumbling with a tie this weekend (that might sound more exciting than what I meant). You read my mind. I didn't realize there were so many ways to do it.

I am definitely printing this out and framing it in my closet. Because sadly, BOTH my boyfriend and I are all thumbs with ties. I was almost ready to just buy him some bolos and call it a day!
