MSNBC’s Chris Hayes talks about tying neckties.
Let me say that I’m unimpressed with Hayes’ necktie knot. 🙂
It’s nothing personal. I’m just picky when it comes to neckties and their knots.
I taught myself how to tie a tie. The reason? I had to wear a necktie, I didn’t know how to tie it, so I worked out in my head how the tie knot needed to work, and BAM! It happened.
The strange irony of working out how to tie a tie intellectually is that I cannot tie a tie while looking in the mirror. It throws off the way things have to go.
My dad was impressed with my tie-tying skills. You, see, I worked out how to tie a Half-Windsor knot. It’s a big knot, it’s a symmetrical knot.
I’m awesome that way. 🙂
