This whole thread is one guy with a bunch of sock puppets, right?

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.

I really like the double FIH because it still has the asymmetrical shape but is more secure than the FIH. It never slips!

Really not trying to be mean here, but you wore that in public? 

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?

Trinity, when done properly, and not too triangular Windsor with a dimple. Symmetry appeals to me.

;) In the event it was a Windsor .. . otherwise the dress code would detract from the seriousness of the lecture material.

My quintuple Windsor .. again tie is Barnes Foundation silk print Monet. Its an exquisite Monet and one of the best in the collection of one of the best Impressionist collections in the US.

This thread is a complete hoot, how much fun can a necktie be.

Here's my version of the quintuple Windsor ...

Then why cover it up with a sweater vest?

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 confused.gif

 

 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). lol8[1].gif

 

 He said he used to wear neckties every day at his old job.

 

 

 FIFY

Ugh, I hate tie knots with no dimple. Judging from what I see on the subway every morning, it seems like most people like it this way frown.gif
