I've never been a huge fan of ties. I think my dislike of them stems from when I wore one to my cousins wedding when I was younger. I tied the knot wrong and almost strangled myself. Ever since then I've been uneasy with anything around my neck. Thats why I wear wife beaters, V-necks and very loose gold chains.
Lockflow favorite Brandon Quick taught at a seminar in Dallas, Texas and taught the russian tie to inside trip to darce choke. This is a tie I might be able to handle. The Darce however is another story.
