Man Tips: Neiman Marcus' Jim Spencer Shows Us How to Use Your Knee To Tie Your Bow Tie

September and October mean a lot of things; our one shot at a hot summer, Fleet Week, the start of NFL football, hopefully a run at the playoffs for the Giants and for some, frustrations at attempting to tie a bow tie for all the galas.

Check out the proper way to do it in the diagram to the left.

After a few times trying it ourselves and failing, we decided to turn to the experts. Towards that end, we hunted down Jim Spencer at Neiman Marcus Union Square. He showed us a nifty trick to see what you're doing and stay sane while tying up. (Who knew the knee is the same circumference as your neck?)
