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.

I  LOVE ART, I love creating and I seems to  always surround myself with artists. Huy Lam is a one of them. He is a photographer, he paint, he draws, he builds furniture and planter boxes! He is a great artist and most of all he is a great friend. 

His latest work might look like drawings but it's not. When you look at it closer, you will notice that it is created by thousands of 4 point type words of different colors. Huy cleverly chose words for each of his art pieces..  For example, Bob Marley was made of the words "One Love"..
