The basic four-in-hand, the traditional windsor, the understated half windsor or other?
I looks more even.
the one I did at school, but sometimes once more round if I want to look a bit more Carphone Warehouse.
and I don't know what it's called. it's that one
Now it's the full windsor, but tight enough to not look like an estate agent or premiership footballer.
it's tasteful, elegant, understated.
But yeah, nice shape when done well.
The problem is that you see so many belms walking around wearing them with leather jackets, skinny jeans and even trilbies.
It looks a bit rubbish but I'm always in a hurry in the morning and I don't have time to experiment.
I wish my Dad was on the ball and taught me how to tie a tie properly—have you ever tried educating yourself using the internet?
For interviews and formal occasions I prefer the windsor. I'm not competant enough to try anything fancier.
It was bloody difficult though. I was attempting this before the age of Youtube and text instructions are a lot hard to follow than video ones.
Still, at least it's a skill for life. I bet you will never forget how to do it for the rest of your days.
that takes up most of the length of the tie, so that it hangs only halfway down the shirt.
Often down to the tie being very expensive. A cheap silk tie-rack tie in a full Windsor gives you a decent but not wideboy size of knot.
I'm glad you agree.
But it just ends up a mess and usually too short.
but it looks like I'm a half-windsor man
But enough about my masturbation technique ..... LOLLLALALLL!!!!!OLL!L!L!
Seriously though that was how I tie my knot.
