Windsor knots just remind me of men who are overly concerned. In my mind a man who ties a windsor knot is also getting his eyebrows threaded and hand manicures. Very dainty.

I tie a Windsor knot and I get all my beard hairs plucked out one at a time with a pair of tweezers tongue.gif. Just kidding. I dont particularly like Windsor knots either, but I used to do them when I was broke and could only afford thin silk ties. It was the only way to get moderately thick knots with those cheap thin ties. Now that I discovered thick 7fold ties, FIH double knotted works like a charm.

Yeah, exactly. That's why I didn't really agree with patrick's post. I've never had a manicure but I would be open to it. My brows are pretty tame but if they went all Andy Rooney on me I'd certainly go for a threading or waxing.nod[1].gif31748-andy_rooney.jpg

i want nothing to do with girls who likes guys who get regular manicures... it's a cup of tea thing, i guess.
besides, not having to preen yourself intricately is one of the benefits of being male.

For what it is worth my girlfriend hates if I shave my unibrow, and girls think my shewed up fingernails are cute.

Oh, and she uses a windsor knot to choke my balls with my neckties during sex.

Thank you for sharing. Do the initials "WTMI" mean anything to you? satisfied.gif (Remind me to be very careful, were I to borrow a necktie from you . . .devil.gif )

You should hope that you never bought any neckties from me via ebay. Dun, dun, dun!

Or maybe someone will invent an air pump that will inflate ties to greater width and fullness for outfits such as these. Nice pieces all around though.

+1, Spoo rarely gets criticism, but a fuller knot would step out of his comfort range. Still better than 99% of the world though.

You might find that a knit tie really does the trick...you might suggest that to her the next time things are getting a little dull....
