    Half Windsor

    I think this looks sloppy, and when i did try to wear it i was always adjusting it trying to get it right in the middle of my collar.

    You have to try the Eldredge knot. Drives the women wild.

    btw, this is the other "sloppy" knot called the 4 in hand

    [​IMG]

    its what they teach little boys in catholic schools to tie if they're not allowed to use clip ons.
    it takes less skill to tie and can be done quickly.

    nice thing about the windsor is that you can unbutton the collar after tying and it doesn't show. during the summer it makes the shirt and tie more comfortable.

    i think what it says is "I am so anally retentive and have so little life that I have the time to tie this backwards knot"

    and "I am so short that i look up to ETM".

    the knot requires so much tie material that you really can't be more than 5'4" tall and be able to tie the knot and have the tip reach your waist.

    I thought we were here to express our interest in tie knots?
