How to tie an Eldredge Knot in your neck tie
HOW do you tie an Eldredge knot in your tie? The knot is the work of Jeffrey Eldrege. The creator of the Eldredge explains:
“Tying a four-in-hand every day got old. So I looked up how to tie other knots when I happened across this video tutorial for the ‘Ediety Knot‘ which introduced me to the concept of tying a knot using the tail end of the tie. I didn’t do anything special to actually develop the knot save play around with a tie until I found something I liked…In real time it took maybe two years to perfect.
The Windsors have men who do this for them. (Next week: bow ties, and why you can never trust a man wearing one.)
