    Hi, I am Ethan Drath at Sherman Pickey, retail clothing store located in Washington D.C. on Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. We are a classic clothier for both men and women. I am one of the founders and creators of the store which has been in business for just about four years now. I have about 12 years total in retail and life time of experience tying ties beginning in about the third grade.

    I will be teaching you today, along with my colleague here, Durand Bishop, how to tie a tie.  We will cover four different tie knots starting with the four-in-a-hand, moving on to the bow tie, the Windsor knot and then the Half Windsor. All you are going to need for yourself is a shirt tie or bow tie  and perhaps a mirror. So, let us get started.
