Which Tie knot do you use?


I was taught double windsor in the Marine Corps and continued its use throughout most of my career. Thankfully I’m in the tech industry now and only wear a tie if someone’s getting married or dead.

Left over right and under, then right over left and under: a reef knot!
Good if you don‘t need to be able to adjust the tie, and you don’t want the ends hanging straight down covering your shirt buttons. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Or maybe the rabbit comes out of his hole, goes round the tree, and back down the hole again: a bowline! Another one for when you don’t need the tie adjustable, and where you want the knot itself to be a feature not just a horizontal pass of the tie, and with stiffer ties best with the narrow end short so it sticks up in front of your chin in a decorative manner. :stuck_out_tongue:
