Also, here's some info on how to tie a tie, should you need it.

Interesting indeed, but it should have been titled "50 pictures of the same fedora" ... I was hoping for pictures of these ancient accessories.

I'm with you, nervousfritz. It would have been really interesting with a bunch of pictures, and I just don't have the ambition to do a dozen different websearches.

Certainly an article requiring appropriate illustration if ever there was one. Interesting all the same.

Previously on MeFi, A Loosening of Ties, which also doesn't have any pictures.

Hmm, that site didn't mention this tie.

Erm. Why would it?

The author's a little cagey on who the actual inventor is. Which is troubling, because I want to find out who it was and where he is buried. So I can spit on his grave.

Yeah. The lack of pictures made this site disappointing. Boo, says I.

Here are some interesting links on tie knots, including an Science article on the possible combinations of tie knots.
