The Best Men's Tie Pattern - Puking Pastilles

The Best Men’sTie PatternRedifine the cliché Father’s Day giftby making it handmade! This tie willbe sure to please any guy on yourlist.A few notes about style:1. This tie is thicker than your store-boughtsilk ties which means that your recipient willnot be able to use a double windsor knot withit. Singles only!2. Because of #1, the tie takes more bulk tomake a knot, so even though it is standardlength, it ends up being a bit shorter than astandard tie. You’ll need to adjust the patternwhere indicated if your guy is taller than average(approximately 5’10”).3. Because ties are cut on the bias (or ona 45˚ angle), you need to pay special attentionas you’re choosing fabrics. Tilt your heador the bolt of fabric 45˚ as you’re looking toknow how it will look on the tie.designed by Georgia Solorzano ©PukingPatterns 2010all rights reserved
