What is the best tie knot? - Page 5
First attempt at a trinity. I will use the knot for my lecture tomorrow. Its easy to tie, viz. double Winsor with the thin end and loop it through the last knot ... very hard to get even close to the picture above (purple silk tie). I prefer square-end bow ties.
Casual shirt only (High and Mighty), with RL Polo knitted cashmere/linen top and the tie is a printed silk Monet from the Barnes Collection, Philly.
As long as you're kidding, this is one of the finest posts I've ever come across.
Its on an RL Polo BL shirt, 14K gold cufflinks, silver collar bones (Paul Smith), Boss belt and shoes, Armani pants and ring, Glen plaid bespoke jacket and Burlington socks. I should wear a formal waistcoat, but I dig my RL tweed knitwear.
So yeah, how many lectures have you sat through with the prof dressed like that?
It's just because people think harder to do = better. I get comments like that too, and people also tell me that dimpling my ties is "sloppy". Plus, there is a tendency to think bigger knots look better no matter what your proportions are. It's not limited to the Windsor knot; yesterday there was a guy on the train who was wearing a HUGE four in hand and he was so thin it looked even bigger on him. The fact that the tie was a "look at me!" bright orange didn't help. And his attitude seemed to indicate that he was convinced he looked great
I whipped out a tie (I just bought) in a bathroom in a club last weekend. I told my buddy that I've never worn one and wanted to try it out. The four in hand came out perfect with a great "dimple". My buddy came over and "fixed" it for me (taking out the dimple).
He said he used to wear neckties every day at his old job.
