[Tutorial] 13 awesome ways to knot your tie

Since my tutorial “12 awesome ways to knot a belt” was so unbelievably successful I’ve decided to create another tutorial. Yesterday was the Christ’s Ascension Day, a holiday in Germany. It is also a Father’s day here. That means it is the only one day in the year all guys can act like assholes, be drunk as sh*t, take their pants off every 5 seconds and nobody can say a word, because it’s the FATHER’s day. And for some reason a lot of german guys also think it’s a Man’s day. So they expect us to be especially nice to them. No clue why. So yesterday on the “Man’s day” 🙂 I invited my MAN to a diner, to celebrate his manhood ;), and guess what, i have no idea how to knot a tie.  1 hour on the internet 2 hours fotoshooting and here is an awesome tutorial for all your girls, men and fathers out there…

    Haha, the knots all look the same to me! I've only used the Windsor & Double Windsor method… but the methods look pretty similar! (:

      they are not that similar as you think, they are different in form and size and occasion. Try the Cavendish knot and you feel the difference. :)))

    I'm a little confused. According to http://www.tcm.phy.cam.ac.uk/~tmf20/tieknots.shtml
    there is the half Windsor, sometimes (erroneously) called the Windsor, and the Windsor, sometimes (erroneously) called the double Windsor. Thus it would seem to be sensible to talk either about the half Windsor and Windsor, or the Windsor and double Windsor. Yet you manage to have them listed as three separate knots. Could you explain what's going on here?

      Hey T,

      you are so right! This is what happens if you work with Post-its® 🙂 What I named the "Double Windsor" is actually the "Balthus Knot". The thing is I used 4 different sources for this tutorial. Some sources called it Windsor, some Double Windsor, some Full Windsor. Plus there are 4 different ways to make the Windsor knot. At some point I really thought there are like 5 different Windsor Knots. Anyway I appreciate your remark. I've already fixed it. Did I mixed up something else? Because honestly they ALL look the same to me 🙂
