hints and tips : how to tie the perfect tie and bow tie

At almost every wedding I attend, I'm asked to tie someone's tie. Luckily, I learned how to do it when I played a guy in my high school production of "Guys and Dolls." And folks, I can also do a sweet little hat flip trick learned directly from Nathan Detroit!

I stumbled across this video on how to tie a perfect Windsor knot and thought I'd share, since it seems to be something of a lost art. :)

And on a related note, I DIDN'T know how to tie a bow tie...granted, most people who use bow ties are using clip-ons, but if you're going old school, here's a video for you!
