How To Tie An Eldredge Knot

 
We can only describe the Eldredge Knot as a work of art. It offers a tapered fishtail effect that requires precision, patience and a little OCD. It was invented in 2007 by a man named Jeffrey Eldredge who was sick of wearing the classic Four-In-Hand Knot to work everyday.
 
The Eldredge Knot uses an unorthodox technique as it manipulates the narrow end as opposed to the wide end of the tie. This tie knot exudes luxury and opulence with every detail, which is why Mr Eldredge himself has said, “I think a wedding is exactly the perfect place for such a knot”. We’ll be honest with you, the Eldredge Knot is complex and involves 14 separate steps. However if you happen to execute it- you sir, are a style icon and a man of true mastery. We take our hats of to you.
