Lesson from Jimmy Fallon's Finger July 22 2015

A couple weeks ago, Jimmy Fallon tripped on a rug and his wedding ring was caught on furniture as he fell, taking his finger along for the ride. Oouuch!!

Thankfully, Jimmy will recover fully. 150,000 ring-related injuries happen per year in the USA, sometimes degloving, even amputation of the finger, are involved.

You can prevent this from happening to your finger (or your husband's finger).

Groom's Checklist: Don't Miss a Thing on Your Wedding Day! March 30 2015

Compared to the bride, who can metamorph into bridezilla during wedding preparations, the groom tends to not sweat it. Actually, I wish all you grooms-to-be would sweat it just a little bit. Here at Knot Theory we often get last minute bow tie requests and super rushed orders for weddings. It drives the tailor a little nutty around wedding time!

So take care of your bow tie first, like how your fiance decides on what she's gonna wear first! For everything else, use this check list to make sure you didn't miss anything.

How to Tie a Bow Tie with Alton Brown October 22 2014

Here's an entertaining video by youtube celeb Alton Brown on how to tie a bow tie!


He tied it in a slightly different way than how we tie it, so if you are curious about a different approach, check it out!
