Tie Teacher


So maybe you can't afford to commission Seth Goldstein to create one of his bespoke Tie-Tying Machines (below) for you.


And you're not ready to take the bookofjoe route: that consists of having a perfect knot tied in the store where you buy your tie, then having the salesman carefully slip it over his head without losing the knot and put the tie in a bag for you to take home.

You place the loop on a hanger — I like to keep it on the same one as my dress shirt — and when it's time to get tied up, you simply place it over your head, under your collar, straighten things up, and Bob's your uncle.

I've had my navy blue tie tied for over 10 years, and it still works like the day I bought it.

Looks darn snappy, too.

I wear it maybe three, four times a year.

Usually when I give expert testimony in court. But I digress.

So you don't like either of the above options — OK, I can understand that.

No normal person would.

I could — but won't — ask what you're doing here, in that case. But I digress yet again.

A joehead sent me a link to the Tie Teacher (below).

"Forget the $100 Tie Lessons!"

"Easy & Quick for All Occasions!"

"Great for beginners!"


$14.99 plus shipping and handling.
