    I know how to tie a tie as good as any man, but that's because I can see something done a few times...and do it. Not everything...but somethings.

    Learning how to tie a tie is one of the rites of passage for manhood....yes I learned many years ago. I would be happy to show you Destee...but this is something learned in person...not online. Do you need to know for your son?

    Well

    I watched my dad tie ties before. I thought I had it down, but the finished result was waaaay off.
    I'd love to learn ...to really learn myself so let me know when the class starts.

    I don't even remember how I learned to tie a tie, but a few weeks ago I was at my friends house and I had to do his for him. He had just moved out and said that his dad used to always tie his for him. LOL almost 20 and he can't tie a tie.

    some young men still don't know how to tie one because they never try
    or learned how some don't even ware one at all but it's not hard at all
    a few steps and it's done this a plus for women as well to learn it .....
