Yep. Had to learn how in college and never forgot. Wore one every day for 5-6 years when I first started banking in Houston.

Believe it or not, image is VERY important in business, and management probablly thinks that driving a jacked up truck is a sign of lack of maturity. Think about it. Do you ever see older, more mature people driiving jacked up trucks? Nope...just kids that think it's cool. Mature folks realize that jacked up trucks is a foolish way to spend money.


Iím stubborn and did it my way. Kept my jacked up truck and got promoted a few months later. Before I took the new position I had a 4 door sedan. I just didnít feel the need to change vehicles when I paid for my own fuel to get back and forth to work. I also drove a company vehicle when I got to work.

The older I get the more wisdom I get and realize that people can judge someone on he stupidest things.

I'd lay 9 to 1 odds that all you sob's that can not tie a tie would be able to tie a loop knot in a matter of seconds in a 30mph wind in 3' seas and probably never look down.

Been tying Windsors, half Windsor's and Pratts since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I have always wanted to do some bow ties for some reason even though around my parts you rarely see them worn.

You could always join the United States Marine Corps. Those drill instructors would love to teach you to tie one. That's where I learned.

I had to go to my grandfathers funeral when I was a young man and I stood infront of the mirror for about an hour and taught myself before his funeral. That was 35 yrs ago and to this day everytime I wear one I think
of him.

You kidding me? Went to a private academy for Grammar school and a all Boys High school.
The Nuns or the Brothers were having NONE of you looking sloppy and not knowing how to tie a tie. I'm doing it for my kids now and ones a cop!

I taught myself how to in college before going on job interviews. I wear them so infrequently now that I normally have to look up the steps each time. I do have a hanger full of ties from when I wore them a few times a month.

Amen. He sees more than he doth know! I wear a suit and tie Monday through at least Thursday and am still waiting for the paradigm shift away from it! In fact, I did change a tire while sporting a tie just yesterday (left coat in truck as I figured no formal attire was required for the task). Nailed a piece of angle iron at 75 mph. No Dukes of Hazard celerity due to the pitiful factory jack, tie blowing in my face on I-35 and the fact that the tire was so jacked the tread had to be bulled back in place to get it off as it was hanging up on the back. In short, a tie can be a slight impediment to changing a tire. Much larger impediment if throwing tongs etc. in the oilfield.

I do not trust anyone that wears a tie to work: nothing good ever comes from dealing with them. Lawyer, salesman, banker, etc.
Because those are the only professionals that wear ties...? I really hope you are being sarcastic here.

It couldn't be any simplier! Just have a look at the pic below!

I've saved it on my desktop and often look up. Btw, this resource offers other popular ways how to tie a tie - https://www.cleverfiles.com/howto/how-to-tie.html.

I learned to tie a tie in high school. I don't like to wear them much anymore, but when the occasion dictates more formal attire, I wear a tie.
