    There was a member here who had a penchant for doing this with his Panta ties, he is missed.

    what do you mean by "reverse tying," and what does it have to do with school?

    By wearing the thin side out alone.

    Sorry, it was just a thing we did at Skl (me and mates) and it was hated but we continued it after leaving!

    What did you do with the fat end, then? Oh, and the gent I spoke of earlier wore the thin blade on top of the thick blade, so perhaps he created a whole new style!

    YTuck the broad/proper part in your shirt, as long as it's not lower down than the thin part.

    Probably to be rebellious and flout rules and regulations for good order and discipline.

    Showing no respect for the school that is trying to give a good education, probably for free. It is a known fact that people generally do not respect things they don't have to work and pay for themselves.

    Lack of severity of consequence is also a huge problem

    Nothing is new.

    At school in the late 70s/early 80s, we did exactly that. Our school ties from the approved outfitters were all 4.5"+ bladed seventies monstrosities. So we reversed them and wore the thin (back) end out and tucked the kipper end in our shirts, in an effort to look like like the young Paul Weller. The young Paul Weller if he was wearing a provincial school uniform, had acne, and a crush on Victoria Principal.

    Magnificent to hear that this style has been revived... Sort of.
