Why is it that people come on here and are slammed immediately for their tie knots?

Because their knots suck?

I call the attackers "Knot-zis"


Attention world: The Windsor Knot in its Full or Half variety is a perfectly acceptable and fashionable choice for the well-dressed gentleman, provided it is supported with the appropriate collar and is in proportion to the man's build and the rest of the outfit.

While some take an unyielding anti-Windsor stance, that's not universal. With the newbies, the issue is typically that they are tying their knots—whatever the variety—poorly. Thus, they get criticized.

OK, I take the sarcasm on the chin. 'Style' does not mean everyone has to go into a sausage factory with different tie knots and come out all looking the same.

If a tie knot poorly done by a newbie, Sugarbutch, the majority of the time it is said because it is the 'wrong kind of knot'...

I know it is difficult to see with lack of a up close picture but given the collar of the shirt is it an acceptable use and is it a poor half windsor I presented?

Am I the only person who really likes the touches that are a bit on the insane side? I adore the mad pocket squares and ties- I think that unless you're conducting some really serious business, at least one part of your wardrobe should be nuts. Something wildly colorful and interesting, to keep yourself from just blending in.

Interesting suit fabric, and the suit fits you well, but please tell me that both suit and tie were purchased as vintage.

I was bored in between meetings and decided to take to plung and take pics, not my favorite fit and not best to start so excuse the quality. I will make a point for full length per Victor's request in the future....

 

Also I know that I will get greif on the windsor but this tie doesn't like a FIH... I was a culprate of using the windsor for a long time but have been educated on the FIH and use it 90 percent of the time.

 

 

1000

 

 

I think you look good in your post Mister for a first post you are doing very well.

From what I can see, Jacket length ok, gape not too bad, button height good, number of buttons on jacket good,  fit on shoulders not too bad, lapels a little narrow, gorge very high, white linen TV fold pocket square missing. Tie knot done well and sits properly in the V of your collar (* most guys on here would recommend DFIH knot though) tie could do with dimple, and collar coule be a little tighter / smaller (collar size). Tie length a little long.
