It would seem to me a necktie would be terribly difficult to make. True?

Patrick: So glad you like em!

Erk: Thank you!

Mr. C: Yes, you're right. My first go at making a necktie years ago was a flacid droopy red satin disaster that looked something like a sadly detatched rooster's comb. In hindsight, it is hilarious. I have since learned a few tricks which make the bias arrangements and handstitching much more managable. I also have tricks with interfacings that can help determine the size of the knot achieved when tied.

I don't know what any of that actually means, but I do know that those ties look splendid. Well done, sir.
