    Comfort, and to fit in with everyone else. You look like a **** with all your buttons done up, when your 13.

    You can tell that you got 11 A*'s without even looking at your signature.
    Lol, I could hazard a guess at who he votes for, how he spends his time out of education, libraries and the study from that post.

    We were told to, but I never did
    I did have it quit long though, i hate short ties
    and instead of having it thick side showing, I always used to turn it into a skinny tie, but just reversing it when I did it


    i messed around alottt with my school uniform, but nothing i believed would set a bad example.

    Great wearing it like that was'nt it!? Did you have a favourite length?

    Before I started at the school, people used to tie them the wrong way round (ie: the thin end of the tie visible), and as short as was physically possible - literally just a few centimetres long.

    EDIT: And I was a prefect!

    So doubt you'd of got "clocked" for that! Well cool

    always undo top 2 buttons and have a tie with a big knot quite loose about 4 inches long, and untuck shirt lol also roll up skirt really doesnt bother teachers so we can get away with it

    Seems new fashion tho is longer ties, not really many people have short ties now.

    I had a huge argument with my mum this morning because she thinks that I'm setting a bad example to my younger sisters by not wearing my tie with the top button done up as stated in the school rules and about the fact that school is clamping down on uniform and how it's worn, and how loads of kids are getting detentions for not wearing their ties with the top buttons of their shirts fastened and she doesn't want them to be next.

    I've always had to wear a tie from reception right up to sixth form and have never done up my top button, but I am quite good at hiding it under the knot of the tie so I don't get into trouble.

    So did/do you do your top button up or leave it undone, and if you did/do undo it, is it just sometimes or all of the time and if undone, then how undone, i.e. is it right down, or is it a 'neat' undone? I need some evidence to show my mum that I'm not the only one! :p:
    You make the assumption that all secondary schools had ties and blazers

    The only way I know how to tie one

    At my school, only the guys had to wear ties but the majority of them would loop it around the knot to make it as short and fat as possible. Or they'd wear their jumpers over the collars of their shirts and not wear the tie at all.
