Tie-Knots-OTAA   
Knotting your tie is a tradition that requires as much skill as practice, and whose choice depends on the shirt, collar, length of the garment and the occasion. The tie, that is hardly more than a simple strip of silk knotted around the neck, can adopt a thousand and one variants, each one more elegant and complex in its elaboration.
   
Do you know all kinds of possible knots?
    
Eldredge Knot
      
Eldredge Knot   
There is no doubt that this knot is unique in its class. Unlike the vast majority of tie knots, the narrow part is used to create it, resulting in a cascading braid effect similar to a fishtail. It is a very elegant knot that will make a great impression on your boss.
    
Trinity Knot
 Trinity Knot   
Are you looking for a knot that catches your attention? This one certainly is, because it has a three-way symmetry, whose pattern is concentrated in a central point, which produces a very striking effect. It seems to be a very complex knot, but the movements are actually quite simple. The design converges to a central point, producing a very striking effect. It may seem complicated at first glance, but the steps are actually quite simple.
     
Simple or American Knot
   
American Knot    
The classic par excellence is the simplest, fastest, and is usually suitable for executives and businessmen, as it combines with all kinds of shirt collars without difficulty. Its asymmetrical appearance gives a slightly lighter touch to your look. It is one of the most used knots. It's easy to do and undo and perfect for most neckties and for almost all shirt collars. Finally, to be successful in making the simple knot, it is necessary to keep the knot in harmony with the collar of the shirt. It should not be too concealed, nor too far from the neck.  
   
Simple Double Knot
   
The simple double knot is identical to the previous one, with the exception that one more turn is added when the tie is rolled over itself. The reason? Shorten the length of the garment and give more volume to the knot, when it is too narrow or the fabric is too light. Due to its characteristics, the double knot is perfect for men of medium-low stature. It's perfect for Italian collars and ties a little thin. It's easy and quick to do.
    
Crossed Knot   
  Crossed Knot   
Another very elegant version of the tie knot is the crossed knot, although it is almost in disuse due to its complication. It consists of crossing the tie between the first and the second loop, so it is advisable to use it only with thin ties.
   
Windsor or English Knot
    
Windsor Knot    
It is the most elegant variant of the tie knot. As its name suggests, it was born in the heart of England, and its shape is perfectly symmetrical and triangular, which adds great complexity to its development. The English Knot is also characterized by its XL volume (which requires the most laps), so it can only be combined with long and narrow ties. 
If this is not the case, you can subtract one turn and turn it into a half Windsor or Spanish Knot. Yes, when it is time to tie the tie around the neck, keep in mind that this is a delicate garment made of silk, so a greater number of turns will abuse the fabric. Do not stretch it and try to avoid leaving it too tight, to preserve it better.
