A Half-Windsor Makes Some Guys Feel Like Half A Man

ST. LOUIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Neckties are a popular gift for Father’s Day but for many dads, attempting to tie a Half- Windsor necktie knot can make them feel like half a man.

According to St. Louis-based video producer Don Schnure, so many guys have avoided learning how to tie ties that when they have to wear one, it’s a humiliating experience.

While neckties are popular gifts for dads and grads, some guys suffer performance anxiety for fear they’ll have to put them on in front of the recipient.

Schnure managed to conquer his own fear by creating The Tie Video, which explains how to tie the basic necktie knots.

He says the average 10-year-old can learn to tie one on after 15 minutes, so it shouldn’t take an adult much longer than that.

Although The Tie Video is for guys, Schnure markets it to women because, as he points out, “Guys will never buy it because they hate to ask for directions.”
