I love a man wearing a tie.

When I go to Nordstrom's to purchase shoes I always have the salesman who is wearing the tie help me.

It is called "dressing for success". I used to teach my sons that concept. Somehow when you are wearing a suit and a tie you stand differently, act differently than when you have just a shirt on.

Of course I stand and act differently when I'm being made thoroughly uncomfortable by wearing a useless necktie.


Much like how I'd probably stand and act differently if I had some foreign object lodged in my fundament.

Actually, it's more like a guy who refuses to wear a tie but likes seeing a woman in high heels.

I think there might be one actual necktie in my house, a leftover from a military uniform that I seldom wore.
there are a few Western bolo ties, but I seldom wear them.
there are NO "button down" shirts, and NO French Cuff shirts (requiring cuff links).
Let's face it, such things would look pretty stupid with jeans and boots, which is all I ever wear.
I don't own a suit. Not even a "sport jacket".
I am, quite simply, not "fashionable", and proud of it!

Zombie thread - twice.

If wearing a tie/suit is uncomfortable for you - you need to buy clothes that fit.

It's not improper fit that makes me uncomfortable in a suit or necktie.

As proven by this statement:

Not the most knowledgeable, most courteous, or generally most competent, but the one wearing a tie.
