The Perfect Knot



New Picture (13)


What does it mean when a man ties his tie correctly? Nothing really.

It doesn’t make you stylish or cool. It won’t help you close that big deal or land a new job. I believe it’s just a life skill. Like being able to change a car tire. It’s just something you should know.

Every man, regardless of his profession, at some put in his life will need to tie a tie. Doing it right won’t make you standout in a crowd. However, not having a proper knot will make you stand out… for all the wrong reasons.

We thank our friends at The Draycott Hotel, Chelsea who have provided this wonderful infographic on how to tie the perfect tie.

Attention to the little details is the difference between looking good and looking great.

Have a great weekend!

  1. It’s the details. Absolutely!
    And establishing order.
    For me it is the double Windsor. Or a bow tie. Often worn with a vest. In today’s business casual world a tie sets you apart.
    For me it was about establishing control.
    Containing myself.
    Keeping myself in check.
    Reminding me to be serious yet often my ties have meaning. A whimsical motif in the pattern or they are tied to a place or memory.
    Choice helps set my mood for the day.
    In these trying times when I work from home I am still dressed as if I am going to the office. It’s all about establishing the mind set.
    Ours to make.
