“Never trust someone who doesn’t tie a full Windsor.”

This sparked additional reactions:

“EXACTLY! Don’t people know how to tie ties anymore?”

“As far as I can see, they don’t know WHAT a tie is any more. I usually see them w/ a sport coat and open neck shirt w/ no tie…at church, work, and every where. Have you seen the no tuck shirt for men? Now they can omit the tie and be shirt out w/ the jacket. Women dressed like business men in the 80’s. Now the men dress like women. I’m not sure which I dislike more. Well, the giant shoulder pads WERE pretty weird.”

This blog opines that ties are good. Your humble blogger loves an opportunity to put on a suit and tie. Sadly, those opportunities are fewer than ever in these casual times. I am amazed at the shrinking percentage of men who bother with a tie, much less a suit or sports coat, at funerals and weddings.

As a service to Millennials who may not know what a tie is, I post the informative video above which reveals the secrets to tying a full Windsor knot.



  1. I think young men know what they are but are afraid some overly militant femi-nazi will choke him w/ his patriarchal symbol of female submission to the misogynist male privilege…or some string of militant buzz words like that.

  2. It’s always bothered me that news people don’t seem to know any symmetrical knots. Or at least they don’t know how to properly tie them. A helpful video, and, seriously, very needed.
