BosGuy style tip

trinity-eldredget-tie-knotIn cities across the US, charities will be hosting a variety of fundraisers this spring.  Some of these events will be very casual like the upcoming Taste of the South End here in Boston on Tuesday, March 4th, while others will be more formal – possibly requiring you to step up your game.

While nobody will fault you for a full Windsor knot, you can distinguish yourself and make your tie really stand out by selecting a less traditional tie knot.  While there are many to choose from, I really like the Trinity and Eldredge knots. Thanks to Alex Krasny and his YouTube videos you can watch how to tie a trinity tie knot and eldredge tie knot.

David mentioned this is his new favorite line of underwear.  I don’t own any, but I trust David’s taste and I love the promo video.  Check it out.
