Brooks Brothers Teaches You How to Tie a Tie - Bow Ties Included

A couple of days ago I clicked on a Brooks Brothers sales advertisement while reading an article on Inc. That advertisement took me to a page featuring neck ties and a set of videos on how to tie five kinds of neck tie knots. The videos are hosted on Vimeo.

Why am I sharing these videos? Whether it's for an interview or a semi-formal affair at some point almost every male student will need to know how to tie a tie. These videos will be helpful when that time arrives in the life of a student.

Shirts and Ties and the New School Year

(This post is mostly just for fun). 

If it's not here yet, the new school year will be here soon for most of us. And for many of us that means new school clothes. If you're a tie-wearing member of the faculty here's a fun and helpful infographic on how to match your tie to your shirt. I know that there have been times when I could have definitely used this instead just getting the matched set that I see at the store or relying on one of my friendly colleagues to say, "that tie does not go with that shirt."
