I've been here for years ... and I'm still unaware that anything is "approved" by SF.

Waiters (I'll agree that waiters are more likely to wear bowties than neckties, but when they do wear neckties....):

http://www.cheapaprons.com/c-35-formal-wear.aspx (The only true long-bladed neckties this company offers for waiter uniforms are pre-tied FiH)


Police Detectives:




Other Person Required To Wear A Tie (this company specifically markets pre-tied FiH ties for "front desk uniform neckwear":

For me it depends a lot on the weight of the tie. FiH is practically necessary with knits if you don't want em huge. Exceptional thin ties demand something weightier though.

All of them wear pants too. I probably should opt for a kilt then.

Bow ties on those under retirement age. Sorry.
Hankies (sorry, pocket squares) with absolutely everything. Some do them well but in many instances they do bugger all for an outfit and even detract.
19 year olds trying to dress like Tory cabinet members from the 1960s ('Is it OK to wear a bespoke three piece to the college bar on a Tuesday night?').
The adjective 'sweet', unless it's used to describe confectionery; the verb 'to rock'. Anyone old enough to remember Tommy Vance would surely wince as much as I do every time it's used.
Tassels on shoes.

The key is to dress like a Tory back-bencher, not a cabinet minister.

That ridiculous tie knot bandwagon on WAYWRN where you can see the inner spiral - is it a Prince Albert? - looks like you never learned how to tie a tie properly.

Ties with jeans.

That is one consideration. However, another thing is that most of the time, you'll see the tiny knot on very tall and sequoia necked (usually very overweight) people. They need a ton of tie length to go around the neck and for the tie to reach the belt. Therefore, the knot ends up being tied on the very narrow part of the tie resulting on the micro 4IH.

Need we revisit the whole "Black pants are for waiters" kerfuffle?
