6 april 2011

A whole lot of face on A1 today. A lot of furrowed brows and scowls and closeups of really nice tie knots. Really, those ties are nicely done! Do we know if they tie them themselves? I'm guessing that's a staff job, but I'd love to get a definitive answer.


  1. I'm partial to the half Windsor knot. Not bulky like the Windsor can be, gives you a nice, triangular knot, and it's pretty easy to tie. I'd like to think they tie them themselves, but maybe Secret Service handles it.

  2. My first thought was that it's more of a specialist position, that there's a TKOTUS who does it for everybody. However, taking our national budget woes into consideration, that person, if they ever existed, has been most likely downsized, and their job is now performed by an eager, unpaid intern.
