All Tied Up

This is for Greg... here is the tie FreedomGirl gave me for my birthday. I'm not necessarily rocking it in these pictures, though. I'm just about the least photogenic person on the planet (please forgive the headless horseman effect, it's the only way I could bear to put these up).

For the masculine fashion connoisseurs, check out the very British spread collar. I'm a walking Marks & Spencer advertisement--I'm sure the modeling offer will come any day now.



And for the bird's-eye view...

Well look at you! I am smiling from ear to ear looking at these pictures - you rock a tie hard Leo!
I have always been a fan of the spread collar, it's so very posh.
Thank you, handsome!! :)

leo, does that tie have the ALPHABET scrawled all over it? if so, that's amazing. if not, well, i'm sure it's a print equally as funky. great pics. if i knew how to tie a tie, i would rock them. any tutorials out there that won't leave me with an inside out inverted windsor wrapped around my wrist?

I love the tie. I've just gotten into wearing them. You look good!

I had no idea the 'spread collar' was a British thing! However, I must say that you look better than any M&S ad I've ever seen :-) Fabulous tie!

greg, hussyred, fimg... i'm blushing to the tips of *my* ears.

emily lou, welcome! thanks for stopping by!

and appple... yep, that's the alphabet. OF COURSE there are tutorials out there. you didn't think i learned how to tie a tie standing next to my dad in the bathroom talking about manly things, did you? oh no. this is a half windsor, self-taught from the very useful: http://www.tie-a-tie.net/
now that i've so generously shared my secret... when will your rocking-the-tie photograph be up?

Gorgeous tie; you look smashing! So very few things better than a nice crisp collar.

Jess said...

awesome pic, Leo. The spread collar w/half windor is a great combination imo.. :)

Is this what you wore on your date?

Well HELLO!!

Nice!

I had no idea that there were different knots... Jess has informed me ... but apparently I'm about to get an education.

:D

I am so partial to the spread collar that I really don't care for the alternatives. That said, it can be destroyed by the wrong knot. You, certainly, wreaked no destruction. Handsome.

WHERE did you get that shirt? I demand to know!

Leo MacCool said...

@jessie: marks & spencer of course!

Wow!... Just.. wow!
