There is nothing quite like a perfectly tied tie to finish off a beautifully cut suit.  A personal favourite of my is the Eldredge knot.  Unusual and quirky and a definite statement in the world of tie knots.  But how is it done and where do you start?

The easiest way to learn is through the diagrams given below

The written instructions are:

  • 1. Start with the wide end of the tie on the left and the small end on the right. The tip of the wide end should rest at the top of your belt buckle. Only move the active (small) end.
  • 2. Small end over the wide end to the left.
  • 3. Under the wide end and to the right.
  • 4. Up to the center, towards neck loop.
  • 5. Through the neck loop and to the left.
  • 6. Across the front, to the right. Then up into the neck loop from underneath.
  • 7. Down to the left and around the back of the wide end to the right. Keep this part loose.
  • 8. Bring it across the front towards the left and through the loop made in the previous step.
  • 9. Pull the small end towards the left to tighten.
  • 10. Up to the center, towards neck loop. Down through the neck loop and to the left.
  • 11. Up to the center, towards neck loop. Down through the neck loop and to the right. Keep this part loose.
  • 12. Across the front towards the left and through the loop made in the previous step.
  • 13. Pull the small end towards the left to tighten.
  • 14. Tuck the rest of the small end behind neck loop on the left side.
  • 15. Look fabulous!
