How To Tie a Murrell Knot

The Murrell Knot is a peculiar tie knot that places the skinny end on the outside of the tie. It was invented in 1997 by a man named Brent Murrell who thought traditional tie knots were too mundane. The Murrell Knot achieves a youthful and artistic appearance and it's been described as a "rebellion against the office tie establishment". So if you want to make a defiant statement against your boss at work, the Murrell Knot is certainly the best way to do it. This tie knot is robust and sturdy and it will last you comfortably throughout the day.

ABOUT THIS KNOT

The Murrell Knot was invented by Brent Murrell in 1997 as a flamboyant alternative to standard office tie knots. The Murrell Knot makes a fleeting getaway from every traditional tie knot we know and so it produces a genuinely unique and eccentric look with every ensemble!

Murrell Knot Styling tips

Because the Murrell Knot was invented with rebellious sentiments, it makes the perfect knot for casual wear. Pair it with jeans or chinos to create a memorable street style aesthetic. However, if you want to make a fierce statement, wear it to the boardroom and see how your boss reacts! The Murrell Knot makes the best pairing with solid colour ties with no pattern because otherwise it risks overcrowding the eye!

Murrell Knot Pressure Points

It's important to spend time adjusting the knot at the end of the process to ensure the skinny end sits in the middle of the tie. If you don't give care to adjusting the tie knot, the skinny end may veer off to one side.
