9 ways to tie a tie with an amazing knot!

For a true gentleman tie - an accessory almost mandatory. Without it and the corresponding costume, some simply do not leave the house. You can tell a lot about such people just by looking at what color the necktie adorns their neck today and how it is knotted. For example, the famous James Bond, who himself showed considerable snobbery in such matters, preferred not to trust the lovers of the Windsor knot. The superspy considered that such individuals pay too much attention to their style. It is difficult to recognize the rightness of the British in this matter, because Windsor is just one of many convenient and neat knots, nothing more. True, they should not be abused either. Fortunately, tie lovers have a rich selection of beautiful knots for all occasions. 9 of the most popular of them, we consider in this collection!

1. Knot "Balthus"

The history of this site has not so many years, but first of all it is known for its large-scale size. The Swiss artist who invented him was distinguished by enviable eccentricity and tied his tie to an unusually clumsy one.


2. The Cape node

A simple but elegant knot, which, with the right approach, allows you to achieve absolute symmetry.


3. Knot "Christensen"

A variant with many names. Cross, Italian, square knot - that's all. The name inherited from the manufacturer of ties Amanda Christensen, in whose catalog was designated that way. True, it is now somewhat irrelevant. Modern ties are almost impossible to gracefully tie this way.


4. Merovingian node

Some consider it a sophisticated version of the Atlantik node, others a reverse version of the Windsor node. He got his name not directly from the Frankish medieval dynasty of rulers. The node is named after Merovingen, the mysterious and incredibly stylish character of the cult "The Matrix", on whose neck he appeared.


5. Knot "Onassis"

The way that the incredible rich man Aristotle Socrates Onassis particularly liked to tie his ties. Suitable for recreation, but in the office tie so it is better not to wear.


6. Knot "Pratt"

It is curious that in America it is called "Shelby", and in Europe - "Pratt". The node, of course, remains the same, but the names of its two inventors are fighting for an honorable place in the minds of people from different continents. Became popular in 1989, it is considered an excellent choice for office workers.


7. Trinity node

This unusual knot is said to be the best for striped ties. A great option for experimenters, because it gives a wide scope for options and forgives some execution errors.


8. The Quarter Node

Perhaps the easiest among the methods presented here. Sometimes it is also called “simple” or “school”, since this knot is great for beginners. It is curious that, despite its simplicity, the Quartet has a rich history, and until the 1930s, it was generally considered the only generally accepted option.


9. Knot "Eldridge"

Spectacular, but rather complicated way to tie a tie. A newbie is better off not starting. The new fashion trend, which became popular only some 7 years ago, “Eldridge” looks like a pigtail. Get ready for the fact that you will get it right away not immediately!
