Why is my tie always drifting to the side? - Page 2

post #16 of 30
I suppose the thrift is not that bad, is it? What about just accepting it? If you want to look correctly dressed just keep your jacket on and the button closed - that should prevent the tie from trolling around.
Anyway, I think part of the charm of the four-in-hand lies in that it isn't strictly geometric and thus a little irritating and (as I think) more interesting than e.g. the Windsor knot.

This absolutely doesn't matter, so my apologies if this comes across as pendantic. But:
It's known as a "four-in-hand" knot, not a "four-in-one" knot. 4-in-1 is the stuff you use to lube sticky hinges and whatnot.

Of a fraternity house activity.

I'll take your word for it.
As an aspiring Berkeley hippie, I had no time for fraternities in college.

We actually started our own fraternity:
Delta Omega Rho Epsilon



Had t-shirts made up, cut letters out of plywood and mounted them on our house just off campus.

Do you have one leg that is shorter than the other leg? This would cause your body to lean and your tie to drift to the side.

Is it one tie that does this or all your ties?

Hold the tie from the narrow end. Put your arm straight out and let the tie hang. If the tie twists, it is not cut exactly on the bias and will never hang straight.
If the tie hangs perfectly straight, I don't know what the problem is.

Whatever you do, avoid joining Kappa Kappa Kappa. Apparently they have a reputation for prejudice or something.

I hear they were founded by Democrats.

Seriously, a crooked spine could have that effect.
