Tie Knots That Look Impressive

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.

It happens though, that the traditional and easy tie knots are no longer welcomed. Trends come and go, and people are willing to try out something new, for example, new eye-caching tie knots.

The Eldredge tie knot appeared not so long ago but already caught on with men all over the world. Thanks to its unusual plaid-shaped structure it became so popular that, probably, it eclipsed the most famous Windsor knot. It looks cool and modern and easily becomes the center of attention. It is not very simple in tying but if you follow an instruction diagram, this task will not seem unachievable. Thus, the Eldredge tie knot is a good choice if you like to look stylish and catch admiring looks. Take a note that it works best with solid color ties or light pattern ties. Heavy and stronger patterns make the knot less noticeable and the beautiful structure of the knot will be lost.

If you stick to traditional tie knots though seeking for something new, one more suggestion is to try the Atlantic tie knot, also known as the Cross knot. This tie knot also looks very original and unique. It is wide and triangular in shape and it is suited for spread collar shirts.

The Christensen knot can be your second choice. It's tied similar to the four-in-hand but gives a result with much straighter sides. The Christensen knot has an unusual cross-pattern which make it stand out and drape nicely.

The Onassis knot will be perfect if you have been looking for a completely new way to tie and wear your neckties. Invented by Aristotle Onassis, it instantly gained popularity in the 60s of the 21st century. It is an unusual way to tie a necktie as the wide end of the tie doesn't tuck into the knot. It just drapes over the knot, hanging straight down.
