Which way to tie your laces depents on which way around your knot is tied. You can mirror everything and the laces still lie horizontally.
I, for example, tie my knot the other way around, therefore I have to tie my laces "the wrong way".
Bloody good but why does anyone want to wear boat shoes ( very much to me it seems a North American/ middle-aged bourgeois southern European thing) unless one is actually on a boat, & even then just get a yacht or some employees, please.
Those hidden laces always harm my feet enough to stop doing it... simply not worth ed the trouble even though I liked to have a clean look. They obvious look great in pictures or ads, but in real life they simply gives you way to much pain.
These shoemakers should find a way to hide them without any special trick... (sorry for my so-so English)
You need to tuck the laces into both sides. The right lace, tuck it under the right side of the tongue and the left on the left side of the tongue. This will ensure the knot stays in the center and you won't feel and uncomfortable bulge in your shoe.
Shoe laces around the boot is not stylish in any book. Neither is fast to tie them with a small knot, duh, we men have sausages for fingers. But i LOVE the tip about tucking in laces in a dress shoe ;) Thanks!
Ok sorry I didn't even make it all the way through you video before I had to comment i to have a big pet peeve with knots that lie parallel instead of perpendicular. The typical sneaker knot is a square knot and you can tie it either over or under depending how you tie the first overhand but yes the resulting knot should lie flat and perpendicular to your shoe.
Only a young woman would be so concerned about the way shoelaces "look". If another person were to judge me by the way my shoelaces are tied, that person is wasting my time by concentrating on the wrong side or my body: my face is on the opposite end.
The opposite (the way I have always tied my shoes) works for me, and my knots are always horizontal... Going "under" the loop of the bow actually causes that vertical / weak knot.
It is less about whether you go under or over, but more about which lace you use as the loop.
Actually, the over vs under detail all depends on which side of the knot you create your first loop. For example, because of the way I make the first knot, I also make the first loop on the side of the lace that sits further away from me. In this case, wrapping the second lace over is best.
i'm a youngster that is always interested in formal wear with some hipster or victorian inspired or something that will uplift my standard's even with a limited wardrobe. i am inspired to you ma'am on taking on a role as a "fashion stylist. i may not be great at giving advices or dress someone properly but i will try and dress them as i do... i guess i'll try harder if i can't.
Whether you should loop over or loop under is dependent on how you tie the initial overhand knot. If you start with a left-handed overhand knot (like AW uses in the video) then yes, you should follow it by looping under (a right-handed overhand knot) to produce a reef/square knot, otherwise you'll end up with a "granny knot" which, as she says, is not as strong. However, if you typically start with a right-handed overhand knot, like I do, then you absolutely should loop over.
Remember: right over left, left over right, makes a knot both tidy and tight! :-)
do not agree with the dress shoes tuck in. Yes, tie the lace so it lies perpendicular to the shoe (not skew) but tucking in shows too much thought as gone into this to pure fashion as opposed to the classical clean but utilitarian gentlemen style and thought.
Agreed on the tucking of laces. Except I tuck laces for all shoes and boots. Never leave them flopping around. Also, when I tuck the laces I split the tucking. Half on left and half on right. Those laces are hard and painful and too much on one side can become a sore spot. Especially for the dress shoes. I tuck them in and back, towards the underside of the ankles on either side of the ankles. There is a bit of a hollow spot on either side. Feel good all day. Also, splitting the laces doesn't create as visible a bump or obvious direction of tucking on the instep. Split and tuck and the laces practically disappear. Like you just slipped them on magically.
I would burn those boat shoes. Sooooo many better options than a shoe that begs for someone to take my lunch money. And just an ugly non-flattery shoe. Looks cute on girls. No go for men as far as I'm concerned. Like guys going out, physically leaving the house to anywhere but a beach with flip flops on. Nothing tells a woman that she is on her own if sh+t goes down or her life needs to be saved like a man wearing flip flops on the streets.
For reference for the sensitive people...No guy should ever wear a deep v neck t shirt also. I personally wouldn't wear v neck at all but if you must, no go on deep v neck. Just because they make certain things available doesnt mean you should wear them. Just some things should never be done.
Good video. Thanks.
HOLY FUCK I FINALLY LEARNED HOW TO PROPERLY TIE MY SHOES I'VE BEEN DOING IT WRONG FOR 17 YEARS!!!
Ok ok, idk about you all but I was taught the super weird double knot method where you basically tie a ribbon. Goodness how ignorant I was...
An alternative to tucking in laces with dress shoes that might be worth while to try is a surgeons knot or bow knot. They're both looped twice for security and cleanly finished in a elegant strong horizontal form. The issue with tucking in laces is that they might stretch your shoes as proper fitting oxfords don't leave much room for tucked in laces, especially for people with a higher instep. Everyone has their personal preferences, but this something I recommend to maintain the proper form and fit of your shoes.
im sorry, but the way you tie those combat boots doesn't look good at all. thats what we did in high school if the laces were too long. it creates the impression that the wearer doesn't even care enough about his appearance to get shoelaces that aren't way too long.
This is great Ashley thanks! I learned some of this in the army. Especially the tucking in of the laces. Now I can't stand it if I see someone in dress shoes or boots (we actually tuck in the laces of our combat boots) with the laces showing. It's so tacky!
Jesus Christ! This woman thought me how to tie my shoes laces correctly. Jesus Christ, Lord have mercy, she will make a good wife and mother lol. Woman you are a blessing to YouTube I hope this channel becomes very successful. Your videos are very focused on the topic and not about you showing off yourself, so they are very helpful. I like your focused presentations. It is like you are a teacher teaching me something.
Hello Nick, Just a suggestion instead of tucking in your laces, I'd recommend trying a surgeons knot or bow knot when tying dress shoes. They are both secure and very elegant knots that are popular when tying dress shoes. Especially if it's pair of proper fitting oxfords as they don't leave much room to tuck in laces and it may stretch our your shoes near the tongue area.
That difference used to be a huge one, with descriptive names like Snowball and Patches and cat-specific names like Tigger and Tabby dominating the feline arena. Since the year 2000, though, the dog-cat gap has narrowed dramatically. If you look at the top 10 names for male and female cats today, 14 of the 20 are also common human names. For dogs, the number is 15 of 20. The fastest-falling cat name list is packed with names like Whiskers, Tiger and Miss Kitty, while the rising names include Henry, Stella and Zoey. Watch your backs, dogs, the cats are on the move.
Pet Sex Discrimination?
The narrowing cat-dog gap looks like a move toward pet equality, but a new gap is rising -- a gender gap. I was fascinated to see that female pet names are trending human much faster than male pet names. The numbers in the previous paragraph showed that 72.5% of the top pet names are common human names. That turns out to break down to 50% of male names, 95% of female.
Whats more, single-sex pet names are soaring. The fast-falling names are full of unisex classics like Snowball, Lucky, Whiskers, Pepper and Shadow. The fast-rising names names are almost all sex-specific. In fact, for dogs even the hot non -human names are ultra-macho ones like Diesel, Tank and Thor. Apparently, we want to be secure in our dogs masculinity.
