I actually SAW a dumb-ass get his tie stuck in a paper shredder. It's just like TV, except more hilarious in person.
He also locked himself in the elevator (didn't push any buttons and panicked when the doors closed and nothing happened) and burned his face while trying to smell a hot pizza.

First honest and true dumbass I've ever met in person.

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!


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.

A clip-on tie is the sartorial equivalent of the fast-food worker's paper hat. That's why.

Enigmamf: The Envoy: 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?

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.


Irregardless, I can't in good conscious use literally every word ever correctly. You're misunderestimating the language by doing it that way.

How is wearing a clip on ever acceptable.
Went to a black tie dinner recently in a dinner suit wearing a real bow tie I taught myself to do.

My buddy turned up with a clip on and a self tie, when the evening got on he switched so he could get the undone look, shamefull

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.

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.


What about the Half Nelson?

The Eldredge knot looks cool. The Trinity knot looks like you seriously messed up your knot and said 'fark it, good enough.'

Breakaway ties.  Tie it, mark the back of the neck when it is properly fitted, and then have a tailor cut it apart and sew velcro in so that it can come off with a good tug.

I have a few modified like that for work specifically to prevent another individual from choking me with my own tie.


I honestly hope that if that ever comes up in your line of work that you run away as fast as you can pinwheeling your legs screaming "NIGHT LIZAARRRRRD....... AWAYYYYYYYY!"

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.

I get what he's saying.  But taken out of context it sounds like, "Make them wear the clip on for no good reason!"
