Extraordinary Eye-Catching Tie Knots For Men

By Alfred Gain

Some men are really troubled when it comes to tying a necktie. Many of them will admit that they know only one or two tie knots. In general, one or two tie knots are quite enough to use every day for work or business meetings.

But sometimes we get tired of wearing one and the same tie knot every day. Of course, the knots such as four-in-hand, or simple double or half-Windsor are the timeless classic, but let’s consider some new, fresh and unique tie knots that can make your day.

One of the popular knots now is the Eldredge knot named after its author, Mr. Jeffrey Eldredge. The Eldredge knot looks very extraordinary and beautiful. Its form resembles a maiden’s braid in structure though it keeps a traditional triangular shape. Tying the Eldredge knot is not very easy and it requires some practice. But if you try it a couple of times and finally succeed in tying it, you’ll be surprised at how many compliments and attention you’ll get. Just remember that you can use only solid color or small pattern ties for tying this knot. Plaid, Paisely or striped ties don’t work with the Eldredge knot as they reduce the visual appearance of this amazing knot.

If you are not so bold as to try the Eldredge knot, you may choose to tie the Atlantic knot. It is considered a traditional tie knot though it has a touch of pretentiousness. The Atlantic knot looks modern, stylish and unusual and it can be worn with a spread collar shirt.

The Christensen knot comes in handy for businessmen and politicians who don’t have much room for manoeuvre. It is classic and can be worn for any occasion. Due to its cross-pattern and a bit rectangular shape, it calls for a spread collar shirt.

The Greek billionaire Aristotle Onassis is known not only for his getting married to Jacqueline Kennedy. He also created a tie knot which is named in his honor. The Onassis knot is a simple four-in-hand knot but with one additional move. To tie the Onassis knot, simply pull the wide end through the middle from the inside and let it drape loosely over the knot.
