  1. I would love to re post this entry on my own website will that be okay

  2. 3 of these knots are the same

    • Hi Tommy, first of all, thank you for visiting us and giving us a comment! As for the necktie knots, would you mind pointing out which of these are the same? Some are similar but not exactly the same, in my opinion.

  3. I’ve seen a long, slim, cylindrical knot worn by several men on BBC News 24 in recent months, but no knot that I try produces the same effect.

    Would you by any chance know which knot they might be using, please?

    • Hi John, my best bet would be the Four-in Hand knot since it is slimmer and slightly asymmetrical creating a bit of a cylindrical effect. If you want to try a fancier knot, try the Trinity Knot.

    • Hi John M.

      This is Ernie Lim from Edohaus. Based on my experience, the thickness and width of the tie would also influence the long cylindrical shape of the knot. Opt for mid range thickness (avoid seven fold ties for this knot) and 2.5 to 3 inch wide ties. Also, a good trick to accentuate the long rounded shape is to add an extra loop before tying the last knot. Try it out and let us know what you think.

      I hope this helps!

  5. Cross knot is much way better and I always feel perfect knotting the tie in the cross manner
