A well-tied tie is the first serious step in life – Oscar Wilde

how to knot a tie


“Son, trust me, a dimpled tie will take you places in life”.

These were the words of my Dad to me many years ago as he taught me how to knot a tie. I didn’t understand what he meant then until my very first job interview, some years later.

On that day, I wore a simple crisp white shirt paired with a navy suit, a brown Oxford shoe and a red power tie which had a dimple touch to it. As the interview was about to start, the lead interviewer [who happened to be the Company CEO) noticed my neck tie and asked me Young man, I love your tie dimple – did you knot the tie yourself?

That single statement, [question, or should I call it “a compliment”] got me that job without too many questions on my technical abilities or prior job experience.
