male inadequacy

You know? I have all these MEN around me.
This morning, I needed some MAN HELP.

And both my husband and my carpool failed me. Neither of them can tie a tie.

Clearly, i need to learn, and teach THEM.

i think i remember how. my ex-husband just adored ties. (looked damned cute in them, too.) invite me over to make bath bombs, and i'll teach you how to do it!

Hey Meriko - this little how-to site doesn't look too bad - fly.hiwaay.net/~jimes/necktie/tietie.html. I tie a mean windsor myself, but the four-in-hand does the trick.

Good luck!

I can tie many kinds. But fewer than 85. In my opinion the full windsor is the only knot to tie, and it should be tied in silk. Probably Italian. But really you need to tie a whole bunch and look at them, because the knot shape can be very subtle, and changes with the tie, and you want something that looks good with the shirt collar style and the shape of your face. But I have every confidence that you will effortlessly navigate these shoals.
