There are many ways to knot a tie: the four-in-hand knot (when the men on top of a coach would knot their ties to prevent them from flying in the wind while driving); the Windsor knot, which was invented by the Duke of Windsor; and the half-Windsor. Plus a few more exotic knots shown in the image below.
Though most men consider the full Windsor and half-Windsor knots to be the best, I have always thought they gave a bulbous appearance.
My preferred knot remains the standard four-in-hand knot.
It is the smallest and most precise knot.
Below there are a few examples of new and improved knots. Well, that’s what they say, anyway. I challenge you to try and tie some of the harder ones. Although the knots look great, they are not so easy too tie.
