Types of tie knots

For men who like to dress elegant they have the best version in tie and types of knots, that they can apply on their clothing. Although they all seem the same, each one they have their own version and how to do it.

We like all its forms and some are too particular for very common personalities or special occasions. You can choose the tie knot that suits you and your style. You can also learn how tie more than one knot so as not to always formalize the same and go to the last.

The tie has been dressing men for centuries

His style and contribution has always given elegance and that is why it has never been ruled out in a man's clothing. Appears in the year 1660 with its beautiful headquarters in Italy, founder of all art. At first it was used as a scarf tied around the neck in France and later it was already revolutionizing its style.

Today we can observe the typical tie with a knot at the neck and with a large long strip that expands below this knot, in order to give that aesthetic touch. Now it is a fashion that is reported to any corner of the world and it can be given in the elegant or casual style.

It's the classic tie the one we are used to seeing, the one that is most familiar to all social classes and in almost all models. His appearance gives that classicism and we will not doubt his style because apparently appears in all stores. His tie is 7 centimeters wide, reaching to cover the buttons of the shirt and without supplying the part of the waist.

Its knot is the one that is seen in almost all necks and to form it we will follow the following steps:

  • We place the tie with the two ends facing each other. We place the narrow part to the right and the wide part to the left.
  • We will pass the wide part to the right over the narrow part, while we turn it to the left and behind.
  • At the same time we will raise it upwards (which will continue behind) and we will make it go up and at the same time it goes down, fitting inside the knot.
  • Tighten the knot by pulling the ends down, while holding both parts firmly.

This knot is a perfect match for those wide and thick ties. It has an appearance of a knot very similar to the others, but it will be noticed that has a solid, triangular shape. Its name comes in honor of the Duke of Windsor, who perfectly represented this type of knot.

  • We put the tie around the neck. The two tie straps must fall to the sides. The narrow end will go to the right and the wide end to the left.
  • We pass the wide strip over the narrow strip, we pass it from behind and we pass it forward again, turning it to the right.
  • We pass it back again and without climbing it we turn it to the left.
  • We can now raise it up to pass it close to the knot, but turning it down and to the left.
  • You have to go around to try to cover the knot, we will turn that turn by turning it to the right to finish back and lift it.
  • Once at the top, we will make it enter through the knot and slide it down while firmly tightening the entire set.

Double American knot tie

Types of tie knots


This type of knot is very similar to the simple knot, but turning it double in the knot.  We put the tie around the neck letting both ends fall down, the widest on the right.

  • We pass the wide part to the left and over the other end.
  • We turn it backwards, passing it through the other end and turning it to the left, the idea is to make a full turn and pass it in front of it to pass it back again.
  • Once back we raise the wide strip at the top and lower it so that it enters the knot. From here it will be fitted and we will tighten the whole knot together.

Tie with knot St. Andrew

Types of tie knots


It's a nudo medium size with a little more volume than the traditional method. It really looks symmetrical and differs from the simple knot by carrying one more turn.

  • We will start with the two strips placed on both sides of the neck. We will place the wide one on the left side and we will turn it around behind the narrow one to turn ahead and to the left.
  • Placed on the left, we will make it pass from the front and above, making it go down behind the knot that is being formed.
  • We drop it again and pass it in front of it again, turning to the right. From the right it will go back and up. When it falls again it has to enter between the knot and there we will tighten so that it remains firm.
