Solving a Knotty Problem with a Few Deft Turns
WHAT you do with your necktie when you stand in front of your mirror in the morning often means the difference between whether it stays put or needs adjustment whenever a blonde walks by. Raoul Graumont, of New York, author of the Encyclopedia of Knots, has made something of a study of knotting ties. He has himself devised a modern knot that not only stays put but also has the additional advantages of not crumpling a tie excessively and of not jamming when it is slipped down for taking the tie off without untying it. It is shown below with the Windsor knot. Both are similar to the old four-in-hand knot except that each of them makes use of a half hitch for the base.
