This is the best tie-tying instructional video I could find online - there are some hilariously bad ones with these goofy little kids that are POETV material in their own right, but I posted this one because it's pretty damn solid.

Of course, wearing a tie means you have to leave the wolf t-shirt in the closet, so I don't know why this is even on the internet to begin with.

I checked out the Windsor video. I've been doing it wrong for years.

This is how I've been tying my tie since I was 12 and I've never known any other way. Does this make me cool, unsophisticated, or neither?

Severian - 2009-03-13

Me too. I think we're unsophisticated.

Diogenes - 2009-03-13

Oh sweety, no. The four-in-hand is an ugly, ugly, crooked knot. You want the pratt or the half-windsor. The four in hand should only be used if you're going for the "loosened, playfully askew necktie Japanese salaryman getting his drink on" look. It has its place but that place is not a job interview.

Hooper_X - 2009-03-13

Pshaw, sir. The windsor family are staid and so very corporate. The four-in-hand is great entirely because it's relaxed. IT SAYS I AM CASUAL YET CONFIDENT.

Goofy Gorilla - 2009-03-13

The half-Windsor is just the four-in-hand knot done twice. It looks a lot better without really needing to know anything extra.

Desidiosus - 2009-03-13

It's the only knot I know too, but the only statement I've ever wanted to make wearing a tie is "Let's get this interview/reception/funeral over with so I can remove this fucking noose from my neck."

Tstyle - 2009-03-13

The four-in-hand is the knot of the common slob.

Desidiosus - 2009-03-13

I consider myself an exceptional slob, thank you very much.

seriouslyuguys - 2009-03-13

I'm with Goofy Gorilla on this one. The four in hand looks like you got halfway through tying the windsor and forgot what you were doing, or gave up. Am I supposed to hire someone who can't bother to more than half ass the monumental task of getting dressed?

The Faghorn - 2009-03-13

Sorry, they all look dorky. Why not just get it over with and wear a bowtie?

If guys are feeling so left out for accessories, couldn't you just go back to increasingly stiff and starched collars?

Robin Kestrel - 2009-03-15

This is the knot I use, because apparently I can't find the gigantically long ties that let you tie multiple wraps/knots and still reach to the top of your belt buckle. Either that or my neck is too goddamn fat.

UnderANeonHalo - 2009-03-15

I've always used the Victorian knot seeing as I'm too cool for this century and the last. I also enjoy vests.

revdrew - 2009-03-13

Should I feel ashamed that I've made it to 30 without having to know how to do this.

mouser - 2009-03-13

4 for the Dork-in-hand knotter.

chumbucket - 2009-03-13

music makes it feel like this narrator was Songsmithed

Menudo con queso - 2009-03-13

"Adjust the knot one last time, mutter a quavering prayer, 'Please God, let this be the day I get a job again,' then put on your jacket. When waiting for the interview, be sure to check the reception area for free snacks you can stuff into your pockets."

GoodAaron - 2009-03-13

Lord bless you craven lunatics and your knot idolatry. Another notch in the belt for things to know that imply more knowledge than they actually should.

karl hungus - 2009-03-14

the music is what makes it. also, only cunts wear button-collars.
