How To Tie A Tie: 7 Popular Ways
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. 

How To Tie A Tie: 7 Popular Ways
  1. Start with the backside of the tie facing away from you, the wide end is on the right and the small end is on the left. The tip of the small end should rest slightly above your belly-button (this will vary depending on your height and the length & thickness of your tie). Move only the active (wide) end.
  2. Wide end under the small end to the left.
  3. Across the small end to the right.
  4. Under the small end to the left.
  5. Across the small end to the right.
  6. Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  7. Down through the loop you’ve just made in the front.
  8. Pull down on the wide end to tighten. Slide the knot up to adjust.
