Attention to detail is everything, starting with your tie
Attention to detail is everything, starting with your tie. Looking neat and tidy is one of the keys to being well turned out. Wearing a well tied tie is a good start and is one thing that defines the sloppy from the smart in a line-up.
The Half Windsor knot, not quite as tricky as the Full Windsor, is a must if you want to look tip top in the show ring. It will make a big difference to your appearance and how professional you look. This knot is more suitable for tie's made of thicker bulkier fabric or for those that prefer a smaller knot.
You need to do something 21 times consecutively before it becomes second nature . . . so get practicing!
The Full Windsor
This knot is most useful for ties made of finer fabrics or for those that like a big knot. Tricky to master but impossible to ignore, get this knot right and you'll look the part.
Remember! 21 times consecutively before it becomes second nature . . .
