Had a job in a previous life where I wore a tie every day for 8 years. Now only for weddings and funerals. And not weddings if I can help it. [:D]

Federal Govt Job here. Years ago, we wore them every day. Then we had casual Fridays, about 3-4 years ago we went casual every day. 0 times a year now for work. 0 times a year for normal daily wear.

It just occurred to me that the three least trusted occupations in America -- politician, lawyer, and car salesman -- all have a necktie as part of their usual apparel. Coincidence? [>:/]

I used to wear a tie everyday, but this school year I decided to stop wearing them. So far, nobody has complained, and now even the techs are "tieless". Av.

Weddings, funerals, "board meeting" days at work (even though I don't sit in the meetings) and the occasional Sunday when I lead music at church. Probably less than 20 times a year. Sometimes I wear one when the Mrs. & I get rid of the kids for a night & go out to dinner.... ('cause that's special too!) [sex]

I had to vote NEVER, though I do wear one every 5-10 years for JOB INTERVIEWS. Once I'm in, the tie is HISTORY. [:D]

used to 5 days a week. now it's job interviews, formal weddings, and funerals.

I wore one last month to a job interview, hopefully that's it for this year, meaning no funerals or any more interviews.(I got the job.)

Mon-Thurs. but sometimes I get away with just going in biz casual
Link Posted: 2/12/2002 7:40:44 AM EDT
Funerals & formals. NEVER at work, I don't want them to get the wrong idae about me.
Link Posted: 2/12/2002 7:43:38 AM EDT
Funeral, formals and at work.

I wear one and keep it under my bibs, I found the big wide ones make the best napkins. When I sit down to eat at the local choke and puke, I pull it out and place it in front of my bibs,(hate to get food on my bibs) after lunch I do a quick wipe and stick it back in my bibs and I'm on my way. Saves on trees too don't you know. I like my naked woman one holding a can of PBR the best. He Haw

3 times in my life. So I guess I qualify for NEVER!

2 0r 3 times a year, max.

6 out of 7 days a week. work n' church and work n' church...

I used to wear one at work, until a memo came down that all techs are to either wear clip-on ties or no ties. Apparently we almost lost a tech when his tie got caught in a huge line printer (the thing was the size of half a VW bug) and had to cut the tie to get out of the printer. Of course I choose no tie. Since then I only wear them for the funeral, wedding, and interview. Maybe for the occasional (VERY occasional) date.

Since I'm one of the un-educated, low-life, blue-collar scum construction-worker types [:D]-I only wear a suit and tie to funerals and weddings. Unfortunately, funerals see the most use.
Link Posted: 2/12/2002 8:29:31 PM EDT
Do clip-ons count as ties?
Link Posted: 2/15/2002 1:47:45 PM EDT
Necktie? Is that even a word? I'm not all that fond of tying something around my neck.
Link Posted: 2/15/2002 2:03:25 PM EDT
Every damn day at work and usually on Sunday. I hate the things. Watch-Six
Link Posted: 2/15/2002 2:10:20 PM EDT
Hah. Not with BDU's. I do have to wear class A's every now and then. Does a clip on count?
Link Posted: 2/15/2002 3:02:21 PM EDT
The only time I've ever worn a tie was at my aunts funeral when I was 15. I haven't worn one since. Not at my wedding, and not at any other funerals either. As a matter of fact I've never actually worn a suit either. NEVER. Am I the only one?
Link Posted: 2/15/2002 3:14:09 PM EDT
Of [b][i]course[/i][/b] clip-ons count! But I do advise you adhere to a "don't ask, don't tell" policy while wearing one. [:D]

Necktie is a VERB.

Necktie = Useless piece of Mens apparel!

The necktie---the "leash of civilization".
Link Posted: 2/16/2002 4:58:35 AM EDT
I don't even wear one for funerals & weddings. I don'teven know how to tie one. The only time I have had any trouble with this was during formal nights on the cruise ship.

Occasionally to work and sometimes to church.
