    I tie a Windsor knot and I get all my beard hairs plucked out one at a time with a pair of tweezers :p. 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.:nodding: [​IMG]

    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: (Remind me to be very careful, were I to borrow a necktie from you . . .:devil: )

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

    +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....
