TIE YOUR TIE IN A UNIQUE WAY EVERYTIME

The fact is that most of the men don’t know how to tie a tie to perfection, although a well-made knot is an undeniable symbol of elegance and style

For a lot of people, learning how to tie a tie even one way is a difficult task. The typical Half Windsor will pass as acceptable for most any occasion, but having a variety of knots in your arsenal will help set you apart from the pack.

You can make a statement with these knots any day of the week or simply use them to look elegant and stylish during those special events where you really need to stand out. Either way, you’ll practically be a forefather of men’s fashion no matter which style you choose.

 

#1. THE WINDSOR KNOT

This is the basic and most common known knot. A fabulous necktie knot that is ideal for business scenarios. The Windsor Knot is a thick, wide and triangular tie knot that projects confidence. It is especially suited for the spread or cutaway collar.

#2. THE HALF-WINDSOR KNOT

This is a modest version of the Full Windsor Knot. When tied correctly, it produces a neat symmetrical triangular knot that you can use with any dress shirt. It’s extremely versatile: appropriate for work or play.

 

#3. THE ELDREDGE KNOT

There is no doubt that this knot is one of a kind. As opposed to the majority of knots, this one is created by using the small end as the active end, creating a tapered fishtail braid-like effect. It’s a very fancy knot that will leave a great impression on your boss.

 

#4. THE TRINITY KNOT

This beautiful knot has a three-way symmetry and resembles the Celtic Triquetra. The pattern converges at a center point, producing a very eye-catching effect. It might seem a bit intimidating at first, but the moves are fairly simple.

 

#5. THE VAN WIJK KNOT

 

An augmentation of Prince Albert, adding a third turning of the active end. When tied correctly, this long and slender knot creates a striking and unmistakable layered cylindrical effect. A very cool knot that works best with light colors. It’s best suited for narrow collared shirts and paired with a vest.

 

#6. THE FISHBONE KNOT

This work of tie artistry is shaped in the form of a fishbone, hence the name. It’s a remarkable formal knot that is increasingly gaining respect. While somewhat challenging to tie, it’s definitely worth the effort, because it never fails to make the ultimate impression. So, without any doubt make your knot a fishbone.

 

#7. THE MEROVINGIAN KNOT

 

Originally known as the Ediety Knot, if you’re a big fan of The Matrix, you’ll recognize this knot sported by the Merovingian. It looks like your tie is actually wearing a little miniature tie.

 

#8. THE CAPE KNOT

The Cape Knot is a fundamental improvement on the quick and easy Atlantic Knot, which has greatly improved its symmetry and aesthetic value. This loosened-up knot works best with mono-colored ties and never passes unnoticed.

#9. THE GRANTCHESTER KNOT

The Grantchester Knot is a large, thick, slightly asymmetrical tie knot. The key to wearing this knot is to stick with silk or other lightweight materials since wool or knits tend to look uncomfortably bulky.

 

#10. THE BALTHUS KNOT

A terrific knot that should be worn at weddings or formal events. It works best with a paisley tie, a wide collar shirt, and a nice-looking vest. It’s also recommended that you use a long necktie because this knot consumes a lot of fabric.

 

#11. THE PRATT KNOT

The Pratt Knot is versatile, elegant, and of a medium size. It’s indeed well suited for any dress shirt and somewhat wider neckties made from light to medium fabrics. You can’t go wrong with this elegant knot for formal meetings, as it looks very neat.

 

#12. THE FOUR-IN-HAND KNOT

This is an easy to tie, slender, tapered, asymmetrical, self-releasing knot. It’s best suited for the standard button-down dress shirt and works best with wide neckties made from heavy fabrics. Use for semi-formal events, when you want to be discreet.

 

#13. THE HANOVER KNOT

The Hanover Knot will make an elegant gentleman out of you. It’s large and symmetrical, best suited for wide collar openings. This knot works best with long and thin neckties, due to its large knot. Use dark tie colors for a better look.

 

#14. THE CHRISTENSEN KNOT

This is a long, narrow, asymmetric knot that is perfect for shirts with narrow collar openings. It’s formal with a bit of an edge. It goes well with any tie pattern and is versatile enough for both formal and social.

 

#15. THE BUTTERFLY

The modern butterfly is the style of a bow tie with which most people are familiar. This butterfly is appropriate for virtually every occasion and is perhaps the best style to acquire first if you are beginning to experiment with bow ties. We believe that every man’s tie collection should have at least one butterfly bow tie.
