So much for there to be only two ways to tie a tie, yes and no. That’s what it is for most guys. A Swedish mathematician says there are many ways to tie one, and it goes beyond any tutorials you may need to YouTube… He calculates that there are more than 177,000 different ways to tie a necktie. I know it takes me about that many tries to tie one right. And that’s just what you need, something else to throw into the wedding planning, the kind of knot you want the ties in. I’ll stick with the navy blue clip-on I got for First Communion. Sure it only comes to my sternum, but it’s sooo convenient!
