How To Tie A Kelvin Knot

  
The Kelvin Knot is named after Lord Kelvin, a mathematical physicist of the 19th century. It produces a neat and tidy knot that’s similar to the Four In Hand Knot. Essentially, it just takes one extra turn than the Four In Hand to make it more symmetrical and versatile. Perfect for your work week ensembles and formal styles alike, the Kelvin Knot is as malleable as they come. We recommend wearing it for a quick and tidy look when you’re running short for time. It works brilliantly with thicker fabrics to produce a more robust style.

ABOUT THIS KNOT

The Kelvin Knot is aptly named after Lord Kelvin, a mathematical physicist of the 19th century, who made significant contributions to knot theory. The Kelvin Knot is a relatively modern invention that wasn't invented during Lord Kelvin's lifetime.

Tips for wearing the Kelvin Knot

Because the Kelvin Knot produces quite a slim knot, it's perfect for thicker ties that need a smaller knot to balance them out. Because of its subtle, paired-back aesthetic, the Kelvin Knot offers a perfect canvas to showcases your most bold and vibrant neckties. Wear the Kelvin Knot for work meetings in the afternoon and then jazz it up with a pocket square and chinos for your out-of-hours social engagements.

How to style the kelvin knot

The Kelvin Knot is the best tie knot to experiment with bold patterns and colours! It's the perfect understated canvas to showcase your most outlandish styles, so throw caution to the wind and choose whatever tie style you like. Just be aware, the Kelvin Knot is relatively small, so it looks best with jackets to give it a more completed look.
