Why - to what?
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.
So you approve of it yeah? What length thin you have your's?
Anyone else do this then/anyone else a fan of the style?
If I join this Travel and Tourism Course at College - where we have to wear a Course Tie, i sure will start doing it the Skinny bit alone out if they like it or not!! Any idea's on length's please guy's?
It will have to be pretty short or else some of the fat end will be under your collar and look bad.
You reckon it might be possible though, yes?
I'm fairly certain this is only SF-approved with an Eric Glennie tie.
True iGents / iMasters source the school silk pattern and get their school tie tailor made.
It's an abomination against good taste. Skinny ties in general are pretty stupid.
You're better than this.
Oh please. Skinny ties can look great and have been worn by some of the most stylish men of all time. Im not talking comically skinny ties.
You're first sentence is accurate, however.
How do you know i'm better than this? We don't even know each other.
You could always send the tie to tiecrafters and have them narrow it
