I use a half-windsor knot. My ties are consistantly pulling loose so it looks as though I am ready to unbutton my top button and relax for the evening. Most of my ties are BB. I have checked and double checked directions on the propper way to tie the half-windsor knot. Throughout the day I will pull the small end and push the knot back where it belongs. Then I will pull the large end as I hold the knot to tighten it more in hopes that it will quit falling down. It doesn't seem to get any more "bite" on the small end and what I end up with is a knot that starts to look too small and is tied really really tight. The super tight knots leave my ties pretty wrinkled and I am sure aren't really good for the ties. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
