How To Tie a Pratt Knot

The Pratt Knot, also known as the Shelby knot, is named after a man named Jerry Pratt who wore this exact same knot style to his job at the US Chamber of Commerce for 30 years. That's dedication! The knot became popularised when he told a well-known news reporter, Don Shelby, on live TV that he'd been wearing his ties poorly on air. The Pratt Knot was printed in the New York Times the next day and it became an overnight sensation in the US. The Pratt Knot is a tidy and clean knot that makes a perfect choice for formal occasions. Wear the Pratt Knot with light to medium weight fabrics for the best take.
