Half Windsor Knot Start with the broad end of the tie in the right hand around 30 centimeters under the narrow end. Cross the broad end of your necktie across the narrow one and then once around it until you reach the front again. Lead the broad end to the top and then pull it from the front through the neck loop. Now lead the broad end to the front, Then from the left to the right across the narrow end. Afterwards direct the broad end from the back through the nack loop to the top. In a final step you need to pull the broad end through the front knot loop to the bottom. And now as supplied before locate the knot on the top and form the middle fold with your middle finger. Well done, if you followed this direction it’s probably good looking.

Please Note: Avoid cartoon character themed ties.

The best suits are wool suits. Wool absorbs dyes better and it fits well and does not lose its shape. It can also be woven into many styles with an attractive cut. The next best fabric is a wool-polyester blend suit, which tend to be less expensive than wool suits, but still possess many of wool’s positive attributes. Polyester and cotton suits are one more notch down on the totem pole, and are relatively inexpensive. The fabric makes for an excellent light-weight suit, but they are far less durable. The most traditional colors for you to choose from in selecting a suit are blue and gray. Brown and black suits are OK for certain occasions, but are far less versatile than some version of the blue or gray suit. You will do a good job choosing if you stick to the traditional color suit, with a tasteful pattern, and you will find you can wear such a suit to many different places, both professional and personal. Suit patterns are usually relatively simple. The most common is the pinstripe, which is usually very narrow and vertical, and usually in white or blue. Chalk stripes are wider than pinstripes, and can make you look like a 1930s-era Chicago gangster. If you go with chalk stripes, try and find a conservative style. Plaid suits can be fine, but again, err on the side of conservatism. Apart from color and pattern, all suits have a style, or cut, which can be either conservative or modern. You need to decide for yourself the kind of personality you wish to exude, and choose appropriately. Remember, your business suits should be generally conservative - no fancy buttons or wild styles.

Please Note: Get a pocket square while you’re at it.

The crown and glory of life is character. It is the noblest possession of a man, constituting a rank in itself, and an estate in the general good-will; dignifying every station, and exalting every position in society. It exercises a greater power than wealth, and secures all the honor without the jealousies of fame. It carries with it an influence which always tells; for it is the result of proved honor, rectitude, and consistency,—qualities which, perhaps more than any other, command the general confidence and respect of mankind. Character is human nature in its best form. It is moral order embodied in the individual. Men of character are not only the conscience of society, but in every well-governed state they are its best motive power; for it is moral qualities in the main, which rule the world. Even in war, Napoleon said the moral is to the physical as ten to one. The strength, the industry, and the civilization of nations,—all depend upon individual character; and the very foundations of civil security rest upon it. Laws and institutions are but its outgrowth. In the just balance of nature, individuals, and nations, and races, will obtain just so much as they deserve, and no more. And as effect finds its cause, so surely does quality of character amongst a people produce its befitting results.
