How to Tie a Tie

I have always wanted to learn how to tie a tie so that one day I can tie my man’s tie for him and adjust it as need be.  Until then I will be studying this website:

Wide & triangular tie knot, good for spread collar shirts


I have always admired men who could be a shirt/tie/jacket together.  I also notice when guys do not look put together.  Either their knot is too small, their tie is too short, or the colors are just all wrong.  Hopefully this website can help a a few more guys look just a little bit more put together.  I also imagine taking a tie off at the end of the day feels very similar to taking off a pair of heels at the end of the day.
