Secret of the well-tied cravat

I went a lifetime without ever getting this one right, it was always hit or miss. But the secret has been revealed!

How to get that dimple in your tie.

Now if I only knew the trick to getting the length tied right so that the end just covers the belt buckle.

Actually I found this site while googling black bean recipes and this page popped up. I don't do the blueberries very often but the rest of the 8 I do on an almost daily basis.

Hah, you haven't worn a tie since Mom's funeral and I'm not even sure that you wore one then.

I had to wear a tie every day for about 15 years while playing "up-the-corporate-ladder". When I quit that I used them to tie tomato plants to stakes. First practical use I'd found for a tie. At first I had a lot of trouble trying to get a tie to look right, going through a book on methods of tying ties. Finally I just developed a method I've not seen in books (I'm sure it's in some, I've just not seen it). It worked for me and to this day I can tie a good tie without even looking in the mirror.

I've needed a tie once or twice a year in the last 25 years. That's enough.

Not me, Fish. I have to be looking in a mirror to do the 4-in-hand or half Windsor.
