Sorry, but I'm Tied Up at the Moment...
Tell me this isn’t cool:
My name is Caspar and I would like to welcome you to my webpage on how to tie a tie!
You know, I created this site for people just like you:
- the working professional who switched jobs recently and needs to wear a tie now but doesn't know how to tie it,
- the college graduate figuring how to tie a tie before that first job interview,
- the high school senior needing immediate advice on tying ties before leaving for the prom,
- and, basically, anyone else who's interested in learning how to tie a tie simply for the fun of it. Yes, for the fun of it!
I have two confessions. One, I don’t enjoy wearing a tie. Part of the deal is it just seems like a bother. Part of the deal is I don’t like feeling like I ‘have to’ dress a particular way. Part of it is wearing casual dress like a badge-of-courage (I still pride myself on not having owned a suit of any sort for the past 12 or so years).
Being the organizational-culture if not -style chameleon I am, though, there are times when at least wearing a tie, and ocassionally a jacket, too, is the right thing to do. And, so you don’t think I just hate ties, I once bought a great, hand-made Lee Allison silk tie that had little TVs on it. The company offered outstanding customer service, too; am amazing experience and product all the way around.
Sorry, I digress.
Confession number two – I suck at tying a tie. Always have. Never really learned the “right” way, I suppose. Its not that I don’t WANT to tie a good knot…
So, I’m loving Caspar’s gift to manly tie-dom… www.tie-a-tie.net. Several knot styles, step-by-step instructions, more detailed pics than I grabbed here… how could you go wrong? I’ll be a frequent visitor, at least until I learn how to tie the blasted thing right.
Wish I still had that Lee Allison tie… it got away from me some years back. Pity.
