    so what kind of knot do you use on your tie? the double windsor? 4-in-hand? half-windsor? clip-on??

    i personally have been using the double windsor. very nice looking knot, IMO

    I don't wear ties that often, but when I do, I usually tie it once and leave it that way and put it on a hanger with some of my dress clothes. If it becomes too tight or wrinkled, I just tie it again. I have no idea what knot I use, though.

    I use the four-in-hand. I'd like to learn the other ones, though.

    Half windsor, I'm young, I'm hip. That's how I roll.

    That's me too!! I go around once, under and through, so what is that?
  11. Damn, I wear a tie ~4 times a week during hockey season, but I don't know how I tie them, I just do it now.

    Half-windsor. Making the knot is half the fun in using a tie, it's already a part of my ritual for getting ready for work.
  13. My tie comes sorta along the lines of. Grab Tie, Fail miserably
  14. My tie clips on...

    Pratt... I had no idea what it was called, I had to google it. Looks like a half windsor but less winds, works well for tall guys with fat necks like me.
  17. I tie mine in a bow.
