...with or without getting distracted?
seems like, that at least 76% of all Tele players here, or even more, can't tie a bow tie. ha!
Was hopin' for a nekkid woman in the background.
Yes, I can tie a bowtie. I had to learn for my daughter's wedding a few months back. Why she wanted me in a bowtie and no one else I'll never understand. All the groomsmen and best man all had on regular ties.
Can't do it, nor do I want to.
I can, and wear them often. They last longer due to the fact they stay out of my lunch plate, and they are two sided.
Yeah, but don't have any now and don't feel the need. When I wear a tie now it's usually something to match a vintage suit - for special gigs or fancy wingdings of some sort.
After you figure it out it's not much different than tying a shoe.
No ,I never own a real one.Had one of those clip on bow ties ,but never wore it.And never will.
Tie one? Hell, I can't even manage a clip-on.
Yup--- used to wear them decades ago when I was a bartender, and just as a hoot (because I knew how from Dad, I'd wear them as an alternative to the ol' 4-in-hand). I pulled some out last month to see if I could still tie 'em but, mistrusting myself, I tried using a cheat sheet (from L.E. of all places). I could NOT get it from the sheet.
As I was driving to work with the tie (figuring I'd take some time there trying to figure it out), I got stuck in traffic. To kill time I put the tie 'round my neck and just let instinct/habit take over while steering w/ my knees. Lo & behold, when I stopped thinking, it came back as natural as falling off a log...and w/out a mirror:
My Grandma taught me.
And I taught a couple of other people, as she taught me.
Then my Grandma died. And I don't seem to know how anymore. I don't get it.
I can't tie any kind of tie.
Even my bolo ties don't look quite right.
I did a wedding gig recently, and I had to ask one of the singers
to help me with my dern tie.
In my town, the bow tie is quite common. Seersucker suit and bow tie in the summer is classic here.
Definitely. Real bow ties rule, clip-ons drool.
For my wedding, I insisted that I be wearing a bow tie I tied myself. The rental place said, "well, we don't rent out that kind - you have to buy it." I said, "No problem - I'll take it." Still got it today.
Isn't it the same as tying your shoes?
Yes, but it took me years. Like ten years. Didn't do it often enough. Still not easy, but if I go slow I can do it in one try.
Just for you emu!
Clean but slightly not safe for work, so linked just scuz instead of embedded.
