    My father tried to show me once and he is a very impatient teacher and I did not learn. He tied one for me and I slipped if off my head and kept it tied. I don't wear suits very often anyway. Once a year, if that much.

    It's not a very popular skill any more.

    Yeah, I have to wear one to work and can do it in my sleep. I vary which knot I use according to the tie I'm wearing. I think I know 4 knots.

    If you want to cam with me I'll teach you how. I know one knot that is easy to master, and it looks good with most ties.

    I can do it in my sleep, in the car driving, while eating breakfast, while walking the dog in the morning, on the subway, and talking on a cell phone.

    I tried watching videos on Youtube to learn. The problem is that I need a perspective of a person standing next to me, and not across from me.

    LOL, I just had a dream last night that included me offering to tie these boys tie's in some shower room at a Gym I think it was a dance. I remember the tie being way to short. Jennifer Aniston gave David Letterman a tie like the one on the mag cover she posed for. He tied it very strange to me wrapped it around like 4 times and then complained about it being short, asswipe.

    I can do one knot (no idea what it's called) but I can't explain or remember how to. If the tie were in front of me, I could do it, though. :confused:

    I can tie one on someone else, but I have to stand behind them ... so I'm working in the same direction I would be if I were tying it on myself.

    I did learn the simple knot. Where you go around twice, once on each side, and then pass the tie thru, but it never really looks right.

    I keep forgetting how to do it...
    I think I've only worn one about 5 times in my entire adult life...

    Knotting a normal necktie has been an 'unconscious' process from about the age of six, although I seldom wear one these days - However, I find I can only tie bow ties when inebriated, can't quite work that one out but there it is.

    I think I just that same standard, easy knot, but it's a bit of a pain in the ass and it never really looks that great.
