    Rarely wear one.
    Can vouch for John's tie-ishness - he came here once (I think it was the first time any of us had met 'im) and was known as "the chap with the wallace & grommit tie" for some time after

    (Though there is some debate - some members of team SmoothWall swear it was a disney tie - can you clear this up for us John?)

    Whenever I wear a tie to work people ask if I'm going to an interview. Shame really, as I've got quite a few and hardly ever get to wear them.

    When I do though, full windsor.

    Clip on ties! Oh dear gentlemen, your standards are slipping!

    I always did up my school tie with a half-Windsor (then switched to velvet ribbon for sub-fusc, so much more feminine).

    When it comes to undoing them, nothing beats a bow tie, atop a dress shirt and under a DJ ...

    Ummmm....I spent the last 10 years wearing a DJ, dress shirt and bow tie, for work!

    They look very glamorous, until you're wearing it every day!!! Though, even if I say so myself.....one does look very good in a tux!!!!

    Awww thats a nice way of remembering people It was a Wallace and Gromit Tie so give those staff a chocolate hobnob on us. (It was for a job intereview the first time I met the team in the office at Leeds hence the suit and tie didn't think Jeans and T-Shirt were the most appropriate for that occasion).

    I've got about 10 different Wallace and Gromit Ties but I'm currently known as the guy with the Underground map on his tie at work as I quite like that tie But the range is wide and has a great many options.

    That's not a reason, just tradition. Tradition being defined as "something you use when you don't have reason"

    Hardcover for 50 new.

    The book basically covers the history of ties/neckerchiefs, and the mathematical proof that there are only 85 ways to tie them. Only 13 of these actually look any good.

    Well I guess I'd better snap it up very quickly. Im sure there are many other people eagerly trying to get their hand on such a great read

    I don't actually own any ties at all. I've never had to wear one being female although I am intrigued now... maybe I should buy one and find out! Although I might look waaaaay too smart for the office... hmm.
