    While I believe a lighter shirt would have worked better with Stitches' fit, I still quite like it... the tie is outstanding by itself!

    I'm happy you're happy with it, Stitchy. :D

    Now, about the FIH. When you say that you suck at it, what does that mean?

    I think Mark Cho has a video somewhere if you need it. But, it is the easiest knot to tie - isn't it?

    ive done the videos, doesnt seem to work for me for some reason.

    when i was like 6 or 8, my dad taught me how to tie a tie. he taught me the half windsor, and for me its the easiest knot in the world. also, that is one of my best childhood, father son, memories. i remember it like it was yesterday.

    Nothing wrong with a half windsor as far as I'm concerned. Doesn't look too wide on these pics - just needs to be tightened a bit more

    I suppose that's as good a reason as I've seen to tie a half windsor :) Certainly better than a full windsor anyways!

    I do agree that this particular knot doesn't look good, but that could just be an off day. I for one tie shitty knots more often than I would like to admit :)

    :thumbs-up: :fistbump: overall. One minor criticism may be that the jacket would look better with black buttons, but hey, this is SF after all! :D
