Interesting history, magikeye — at last I have some background on why I have to (occasionally) wear the damn things.

Also of possible interest to fellow sufferers: Necktie.com's How to tie a tie.

Tie knots, random walks and topology.

Wow. monju-bosatsu, I was totally pissy about that being a .pdf at first, but it's the most amazing thing I've ever seen, and I'm so glad you posted it. That makes math worthwhile.

I'd like to find a denim necktie, myself. A friend of mine once made a nice one out of Desert-Storm-era "chocolate chip" camo material.
