Innovative ways to tie a tie

To celebrate the fact that we now sell bespoke ties (in the same colour as your lining if you wish), it seemed the perfect opportunity to offer some tie advice. The four-over-hand and half-windsor are probably the only two knots in your tie tying armoury, so why not impress your friends (and yourself!) by learning one of these more innovative methods:

 

This knot is one of a kind – stylish, sophisticated and suited to a classy occasion. It is certain to get you noticed and leave a lasting impression. Use a medium or slim tie to achieve the most effective look.

2. The Trinity: This precise knot can almost create a hypnotic illusion if a patterned tie is used. Wear this at the office or to a meeting as a talking point with clients. The distinct lines of the knot make this style effortless to wear.

3. The Ellie: Gives you a similar effect to the Eldredge but is much easier to tie, which is perfect for the fast city pace. This sits well inside a semi-cutaway collar allowing the tie knot enough space to create an impression of its own.

4. The Fishbone: This style tends to be most successful with a shirt that has a semi-cutaway or cutaway collar opening so that the full intricate nature of the knot is evident. This knot works with block colours for a clean-cut look or with textured fabrics for a twist on the classic.

These are just a select few of the tie knot options that are available to you, now you just need the right tie for your favourite knot. We have a vast selection of fabrics to choose from in both block and patterned colours. These can be made in slim and regular widths to suit your preference. Or if you are a bow tie man why not order self-tie bow tie to add that striking edge to a dinner suit.

Hype For Pinstripe

The term ‘pinstripe’ refers to the very thin, parallel lines that run through a cloth, contrasting with the main colour.
