Men look good in suits and ties look good on suits, hence every man should know how to tie a kickass tie knot (And they said I was bad at math). While in your adolescent years it was alright to have your father make the knot for you or have a classmate do it, but once you start working it is essential to know a few good knots. Luckily for us there a number of YouTube videos explaining how and because I love you all I have compiled a list of 4 tie knots that look good and are easy to get a hang of
1. The Windsor knot
Also called the Full Windsor or the Double Windsor to distinguish it from the half-Windsor. It is known for producing a symmetrical triangular knot. It’s such a distinguished knot that it is named after the Duke of Windsor (Don’t ask me which Duke of Windsor). Works exceptionally well on guys sporting a bit of facial hair.
2. The Merovingian knot
Also known as the Ediety knot, this knot has enjoyed a renaissance of sorts in previous years due to it being worn by Lambert Wilson’s character in the Matrix trilogy, that character as you might have guessed was called ‘The Merovingian’
3. The Eldredge knot
Invented by a man named Jeffrey Eldredge in 2007. The Eldredge knot is the most complicated one on the list for the simple reason that it involves a crazy number of different steps. This knot will definitely impress at interviews and dates.
4. Four-in-hand knot
Also known as a simple knot or schoolboy knot, this knot is simplicity at its best. However, I am not going to show you the easy way of doing this. Here is super awesome way of tying a Four-in-hand knot that is going to be a pretty good party trick to have.
