Elegance

“Elegance is a glowing inner peace. Grace is an ability to give as well as to receive and be thankful. Mystery is a hidden laugh always ready to surface! Glamour only radiates if there is a sublime courage & bravery within: glamour is like the moon; it only shines because the sun is there.”  C. JoyBell C.

How to tie a tie, VERSION FRANÇAISE INCLUSE


Best videos tutorials I have ever seen! Worth watching even if you can tie your own tie with your eyes closed. Brilliant videos, très sexy!

How to Tie a Tie, Version Française
Starring the models Aurelie Claudel and Julia Frauche.  
Shot by Francesco Carrozzini.



Here are a few interesting facts about ties:

  • 80 % of ties sold in the US are purchased by women.
  • A quality silk tie require about 110 silkworm cocoons.
  • It's possible to buy a bulletproof tie, it would stop a 9mm bullet.
  • There's 85 possible ways to tie a tie. But really, there is only four knots to worry about. The four-in-hand knot, the Pratt knot, the fancy half-Windsor and the very fancy Windsor knot!
Four in Hand is the easiest and most popular knot. It only takes four steps and works with most collars.     



The Pratt knot – Also known as the Shelby or the Nicki knot. This one takes six steps, but gives you a tighter smaller knot at the neck.

The fancy half-Windsor takes a whopping NINE steps!

The very fancy Windsor requires the same number of steps but you finish with much thicker knot.
