My mum used to make Bridport neckties.... she worked in the rope factory that supplied the UK prisons with rope for hangings.

At Bridport in Dorset, rope & netmaking have been the major industry since the 13th Century but since the death penalty was repealed in the 1960s, their most famous products are the nets for Wimbledon Tennis tournaments.

it all started in China..


I heard that a few years ago, some European designers tried to get men to move on from wearing neckties, because both the ties and the flappy collars they're worn with are so daggy.

But businessmen were conservative and too scared to change - we may have to put up with thzem for millenia!

How about one of those thin ribbon Col Sanders ties? The statement there is "Oh, you're gonna buy me chicken! Ohhhhh!"

I think if a man were to wear both a bow tie, as well as a neck tie (both at the same time), I think that would make a hell of a statement.

We were a Freudian family, but, oddly, I never heard that neckties were phallic symbols. I did learn that if someone gave you a necktie as a gift, it meant he wished you would hang yourself.

I've never known why the knot is named after the Duke of Windsor, because he never used it. His ties were specially made with thicker cloth in order to produce a wider knot when tied with the conventional four in hand knot.

Personally I don't like ties although I wore one every working day for about 15 years. My canned response to the tie question was, "No, I don't like them but I like where they point."

Why in heaven's name tie a windsor unless you are going for a 70's retro look? Four-in-hand of course.

Amos expressed a view of ties similar to what John-O said above, and it occurred to me that they are both right. It demonstrates your subservience to the system. That women like them . . I don't know why, unless it is an anachronistic symbol of wealth and status, and hence a matingtrigger.

Cluin, wore a tie daily for 35* years. WIndsor works, just leave the collar button undone until you are ready to slip the knot up. Keeps the collar from turning up at the ends.

(had one on last night for a musical event - don't do that too frequently)

Four-in-hand knot, otherwise known as "over, under, around, up and through". Tends to leave a lot of excess in longer ties, though.

Just a note, the Windsor knot is illegal in HM Forces due to it being named after the Duke of Windsor, the King who abdicated and became a nazi sympathising traitor.

Stand in front of the mirror with your tie around your neck. The thick end should be in your right hand and the thin end in your left hand.
In the interest of clarity I will henceforth refer to the thick end as 'T' and the thin end as 't'.
After the first phase of tie manipulation (FPTM), we will obviously need to differentiate between the working ends and the original ends, which will still, from time to time, be in play. To this end I will refer to the new working ends as T1 and t1, and after the second phase of tie manipulation (SPTM), T2 and t2. Third phase, T3 and t3 and so on and so forth.
You will by now no doubt have noticed that the mirror image has T where t should be and t where T should be. In the interest of clarity, when refering to the mirror image I will of course use T(m), t(m), T1(m), t1(m), and so on and soforth.
Now then, flop T over t.
Make a cup of tea. This could take a while.

Cluin, if you must wear a tie, just undo the top button and loosen the tie and wear it that way. Looks cool and relaxed and nobody can tell if you know how to tie knots properly. Only pencil necked geeks can comfortably tolerate a tie.

Thirty five years ago, the last time I wore a tie, nearly all the then-current crop of ties one could find at retail (Central US, anyway) were too short and too bulky for a true Windsor knot. I really disliked the way most of the half-Windsor knots most people used always pointed a bit askew, no matter how carefully you tied them or often you straightened them. As suggested by some previous comments, a proper tie, if tied with one of the smaller knots, was somewhat at risk in encounters with the zipper on the trousers.

I thought once that perhaps the guys did that on purpose, so there'd be an excuse for some SWL to "straighten" them; but I tried and discarded that notion. It never seemed to work for me.

Rather than a phallic symbol, I've always thought of them as having the original function of a napkin or gravy drip catcher. Kind of like the protective valance that used to be basted on coverlets so the whole thing wouldn't have to be washed as often - or ever.
