Girion47: I wore a Double Windsor every day for highschool. If you're going to be such a twit I'll refer you to wiki:"TheWindsor knot, also referred to as aFull Windsor or as aDouble Windsor to distinguish it from theHalf Windsor"


No, you wore a Windsor Knot.  End of.  The nomenclature "Double Windsor", which you have helpfully provided a citation for, was so the moronic could distinguish between the Windsor and the Half Windsor which are the actual names of the tie knot.  If being right means being a twit then I absolutely am one.  Would that make you a twat?

Also, if we're going to do the anecdotal crap, I wore them all throughout school and still do every day for work which trumps your (apparently meagre) stint of secondary education by a couple of decades, having been instructed by high-ranking naval officers (the Royal Navy having a long tradition of wearing Windsor Knots which I believe they still do) in the family on how to tie one and what it is called.

Girion47: The knot you tie also shows how serious you are, single windsors tell me that you don't really know how to tie a tie and you're wearing it out of obligation. You should at least wear a double windsor.


True story: Nobody ever taught me how to tie a tie, I just did what "seemed right". Turned out I replicated the double windsor.

Girion47: The_Original_Roxtar: doczoidberg: I prefer clip on ties.

Sadly, things are the opposite here in the US. Here, if you wear a clip on, people look down on it, for some brainless reason.

I mean, honestly. Why would I want to screw around trying to tie a piece of cloth around my neck in a specific way??? Just clip that sucker on and be done with it!

Clothes say a lot about a person. a clip-on tie says "I'm going to do the minimum that is required"
tying a tie takes less than a minute and allows you to have your tie the proper length (widest part hits the level of the top of your belt).

The point of your tie should hit your belt buckle.  Any lower and your smaller end won't fit into the holder on the back of the front segment.


i'm tall, so the narrow end rarely hits the loop (I wear a carbon fiber and aluminum tie clip much of the time to keep it reined in). Really, the center of the belt buckle is your target for the tip (give or take a half inch). in any case, the "1 length fits all" clip-on doesn't allow for any adjustment.

English is a language that learns from its speakers. Pretty much everyone calls it a Double Windsor - and if people understand it as such, that's what it is.

People who insist on "proper" English, disregarding actual usage, are generally compensating for insecurities. AKA twats.

Tip should be just at the buckle, or where it would be...

Do you not buy extra long ties?

The Envoy: Girion47: I actually really like wearing ties, I feel they can lend a nice touch to a suit if you get your color contrasts set up correctly. The knot you tie also shows how serious you are, single windsors tell me that you don't really know how to tie a tie and you're wearing it out of obligation. You should at least wear a double windsor.

Now, these below are really cool knots, I haven't tried them out yet, but I will wear them in the future.

Those knots would only be sported over here by shiny-suited spivs trying to sell you a 911 or a house in Chiswick.  They're foul.  Also, there's no such thing as a Double Windsor.  If people refer to Double Windsors it tells me that they don't really know how to tie a tie.  It's a Windsor or a Half Windsor, nothing else.

I don't disagree.  It's not relevant here but you've obviously got an axe to grind on the subject, so have it it my colonial chum.  I'm not insisting on proper "English" as the words aren't wrong unlike, say, "colour" it's merely the wrong name for something.  That there are plenty who are ignorant does not make it correct.  "Pretty much everyone"?  Where?  Your limited circle of friends?  Well, that's settled it then!  All 8 people you know call it a Double Windsor, that must be right!  Whatever you say.  Personally, I'm going to go with the definition provided by your compatriot, a definition that all of the armed services of the UK also abide by and which has been widely accepted by such for more than half a century.

Years ago I worked with very high speed band printers in an IBM computer room.  Those farkers were dangerous and I refused to wear a real tie, despite company policy that banned clip-ons (and required you to wear a tie).  Yeah, they were anal retentative about that, but I stood my ground.  It was a temp job, anyway, and I wasn't about to risk stranglation for that (or any) job.

Why bother with a belt anyway? Ruins the look of a suit.

It took me about 5 minutes to learn the first time so no not hard.

No velcro but no laces either! Think he wears slip ons at the moment although he has got good taste in suits.

But matching your belt to your shoes can be important, especially if you're going for some contrast between the jacket and the pants.   or the shirt and the pants.

this has to be a troll, but I'll bite.

We had a guy come in for an interview once with a clip on tie. As soon as he left, we spent a good hour or so laughing. Then we spread the news around the office... no one believed us.

Clip on ties are for children. Would you hire someone who came into an interview in their Batman onesie? -Because a clip on tie is about half a step above that.

No, you wear suspenders (braces). Much more comfortable. I'm wearing them as I type this. Plus you can do that fat man thing where you stand up, pull them forward with your thumbs, and let them fly back.

Belt should match shoes, unless suspenders, in which case it doesn't matter, because you shouldn't be able to see suspenders. Traditionally, you would wear a vest (waistcoat) over your suspenders. You would be able to remove your jacket and still not see the suspenders.

No idea what you mean by contrast between jacket and pants... a suit, they are the same fabric, so they'll match. A sport coat, yes, that's the point.

Ah I tried braces but unfortunately am too thin for them and have an abnormally long back! Caused quite a bit of pain so cant wear them
However belts suffocate me and dont enjoy them, prefer the look without, just seems sharper.

The people who instructed me to get breakaway ties carry concealed for a living.  They are not mallninja type people...  It is actually very difficult to do draw/retention drills from under a suit, when an individuals opening moves involve cutting off your air supply with the noose around your neck.

But can we at least agree that tuxedo t-shirts are OK in professional and formal situations?


I'm prepared to put that in writing.

Girion47: I actually really like wearing ties, I feel they can lend a nice touch to a suit if you get your color contrasts set up correctly. The knot you tie also shows how serious you are, single windsors tell me that you don't really know how to tie a tie and you're wearing it out of obligation. You should at least wear a double windsor.

Now, these below are really cool knots, I haven't tried them out yet, but I will wear them in the future.

Roger Bibbings, occupational safety adviser for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, said schools can make pupils wear clip-on ties, but should not cite health and safety grounds.

You'd think an agency that's charged with enforcing health and safety rules would be able to fine people for making up spurious health and safety rules. As in no you can't be a dick on our nickel. Actually serious.
