    If you must wear a tie at all, go simple or windsor. Don't do the eldredge unless you are trying to look like a major douche.
    Is this still revelant?

      What about at weddings, funerals, school formals, etc?

    • Even at those places it's not universal any longer. Fortunately.

    I always go with a half Windsor knot.

      What's the difference between Windsor and half Windsor?

    • I think the Windsor is a larger knot.

    I've tried all different ways and they are all a long son of a bitch mother fucking process it pisses me off. I hate fucking ties its bad enough we have to pay a butt load of a shitty money to pay for the suit then we have another asshole fucking stupid very very very very difficult cross roads where we have to tie a tie. That shit is fucking impossible for me. I've youtubed every single youtube video and I still can't do it fuck my LIFE.
  • coolbreeze
    Nice mytake. I tie my tie the simple way. Maybe I might try the other ones and see how it looks with certain colors.
  • Imhotep99
    I guess Windsors are the most common knots here.
    The Eldredge Knot looks pretty hard though.
  • YourFutureEx
    Ah! Exactly the thing I've been waiting for. Thanks!
    Windsor Knot is where it's at.
  • akadatank44

    Simple tie for everyday and Windsor knot for when you need to look balanced.
  • helloitsmethere
    I always did the windsor knot with my old school uniform.
  • mostwomenshouldstfu
    I'll have to try that Windsor knot. That 2nd one looks too fancy, and doesn't slip.
  • pavlove
    are you effing kidding me with this take?
    • RedRobin

      No, why?

    • pavlove

      this isn't YOUR take. It's just a copy and pasted how-to on tieing a knot. and besides every guy knows its way easier to watch a video of someone tieing a knot and learning from that.

      lord, guys will read anything that's written by a girl... no offense

  • BCRanger10
    Full-double Windsor for me!
