Then I'll go over and teach him why it's a bad idea to tie a friggin rope around his neck in an airplane.........Swass said:Seriously, when you get a real job call me. I can teach you how to tie a real tie. For a fee I'll even teach you how to take it off again.
Screw the velcro...just get some pilot shirts and have a tie design silk screened on them. They'll look kind of dorky if you don't button the top button, but at least it would beat the hell out having to change the oil in your tie ever three to five years.hobbsmeter said:What about using Velcro? Just cut the back of your tie, sew on the velcro patches and there you have it. Easy enough to remove inflight and put back on later, plus there's no metal clip showing, and the velcro would be hidden under your collar.
Has anyone tried this? I think I'm on my way to the patent office on Monday
