That is good information.

Now I know where to go to get someone to tie mine for me if the occasion ever arises to wear one.

I was probably around 30-32 when I started wearing/learning how to tie a tie. I do not have to wear a tie, however I began to realize that most of the men that I respect, admire, and consider to be my mentors/roll models wear them. So I started?

Well the whole reason I started this thread was because I was going for an interview for a position that I have wanted for years. I'm the supervisor for a team of guys and I applied for my managers position and I didn't get it. One of the things the want me to work on is dressing up in a tie more. Stupids thing I've ever heard considering I work for a uniform company and I wear a uniform every day

That's kind of like being told you didn't get a low level management position because you don't have any management experience. Makes you want to say "Hello, McFly!" doesn't it?

Sorry you didn't get the position.

I learned how to tie a tie in high school because we had to dress up on game days. A good friend's Dad taught the two of us at the same time. I have to tie my Dad's ties for him if they happen to come untied.

Crazy part about all of this is my wife is a gm with the same company and her sales mangers husband got the job!!!!!! I'm sick to my stomach right now. I pretty much didn't get the job because I am a good old boy who drives a jacked up truck and don't wear a tie enough To make it worst my gm's brother worked for my wife and he sucked so she tried to develop him and he kept dropping the ball on projects! After she kept telling him what he needed to work on he left and moved out of state to work in the division his sister works in. So basically his sister my bosses boss got him a Job in our division in another state. I found out tonight from another manager word for word as they past a jacked up truck that Dave actually thinks he can go see a customer in a silly truck like that Well guess what if I got a $500 dollar a month car package I would be driving a dang Prius to go see those customers
But as they say it is what it is. They actually didn't even give me a development plan for my position to get to the next level because I'm already way above it. My development plan Is learning how to type better and learning excel, along with wearing a shirt and tie to work more often even though I will have to change into working Man's clothes every day!!!! After 11 years with the company I think it's time for me to be a greeter at bass pro shops! Who's in on the discounts

(the knot is tight not tight against your neck) With a spread collar I usually go with the Windsor knot.
Same here on the knots. Most of my dress shirts are spread collar so I spend a lot of my suit time in a full Windsor.

Sorry you didn't get the job, I recently have made a big jump up the ladder from low level management to director. It literally is a combination of things. Right place/right time, who you know, past success on projects. It's a different sandbox, you don't have to sacrifice your good ole boy mentality , it may come in handy. But when push comes to shove, always act like the big man when opportunities present themselves, ie, how you send emails, the people you speak with and how you speak with them, presentations in front of folks. Hope this helps along with tieing a tie, you will be on your way!

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.

I've told them time and time again that as soon as I got promoted I would get a 4 door sedan. The promotion comes with a car package which would allow me to have 2 vehicles.

I may be in the minority but I think knowing how to tie a tie is required knowledge. No different from being able to change a tire. I also think every man should read Dress for Success by John T. Molloy at least once. Some of it isn't applicable in today's era but it is full of good information.

I consider myself a full blooded registered redneck but that doesn't mean you can't dress sharp when it is called for. I also got a good piece of advice right our of engineering school.....Dress for the job you want, not the one you have.

Changing a tire is a
Useful skill based in necessity. A suit, more importantly, a tie...serves absolutely no utilitarian purpose. As a matter of fact, they are a hindrance to accomplishing any task aside from dressing up. The suit needs to go the way of the top hat.

I know how too tie a tie in several different knots. Granted for my job and career its important to know how to tie a tie. That being said I don't wear a tie everyday but when I have important meetings with physicians, clients, state representatives, etc... I will wear one. One of the best pieces of advice I was ever given was to dress to your audience. If I'm meeting with people wearing ties I will wear one as well. To me it shows respect and professionalism. This wont apply to every profession but to mine it does

I personally don't mind a tie that much but that's probably because I don't wear one everyday. Plus the wife loves it so if I can score some extra brownie points I'll take it lol

This argument doesn't hold much water. We could probably get together and list a million non-utilitarian things/skills we all do every single day. Still, be grateful you don't have to wear a tie every day!

Growing up I had no clue how to tie one. Wore a clip on for my 'sacker' position at Piggly Wiggly grocery store. Set a goal to learn how by age 30. Got it figured out with a few months to spare! It is kind of like riding a bike once you learn how. Although, one time while getting dressed for a big job interview, pre-interview jitters got the best of me, and I went totally blank on the mechanics of tying that tie.

I am 41 and never have tied a tie. The one time I wore a nice tie for my cousin's fancy wedding I had someone else tie it for me. Have no interest or want to for learning how to wear a real tie.

What I meant was most things we wear are based on some actual purpose, or at the very least, aren't a hindrance to day to day activities. The only reason we wear a suit is because someone, presumably a century or two ago decided it looks nice. They've always been a pain in the ***, but people still wear them because....why? Because it's always been that way? Because the other guy does? Makes no sense.

People like Burnadell and my dad say, "because some situations call for us to look nicer." I don't think suits and ties look nice. I think they look stupid in 2018, and I think they looked stupid in 1985.

I clearly don't work in corporate America, if I did I'd strap on the monkey suit just like everyone else...but I don't believe the lord requires I be miserable, or minds if I wear starched jeans and a pressed shirt to church.

I’m as “pro” blue jeans as they come but a good suit is way more comfortable than starched jeans.

Understandable, but as long as the suit requires a tie, I'll take my jeans. I can't stand to have something even snug around my neck… It makes me nauseous.Nevermind those ugly slick bottom shoes.

Haha I enjoy it all minus the tie every once in a while but even threw on a tie for daddy daughter date but it sure came off quick as it could. Almost chokes a man as bad as a wedding ring

Every grown man should own at least one suit, tie, and know how to tie it.










When I grow up I'm gonna learn.

I can't deal with anything touching my throat. I've only worn them at weddings and some funerals. I had someone else tie it for me.

I hate ties with a passion, and refuse to wear one unless I'm singing at a wedding, funeral, or at church...but I can tie one in the dark. My brother was Mr. GQ back in his teenage years and 20's, and made sure I knew how to tie a tie, but I still hate wearing one
