Tying a Tie

Confession time: I am twenty-eight years old and still don’t know how to tie a tie without resorting to How-To Videos on YouTube. I own ties. I’ve worn them. I just don’t know how to tie them. I’ve tied a tie once successfully from memory. Once. I did such a good job (and I was so proud of myself) that I never untied it. I just slip it over my head and loosen and tighten it up as needed. It’s not the best system but it’s worked so far. Knowing how to tie a tie means that you are a man. I’m kind of reluctant to take that last step into adulthood. Ties might make you look sophisticated, but they can also make you look like a tool if you can’t pull it off. I’m afraid that I might look like a tool. At least I’m not the only one.
