How To Tie A Tie With The Windsor Pattern

Funny enough the Duke of Windsor never really used the Windsor knot, he preferred a wide triangular knot. In fact, the Duke achieved his trendsetting look by tying a Four-in-Hand with specially made wide and extra thick ties.

The Windsor knot was created by the public as a way to imitate the Duke’s knot style. There are several derivatives of the Windsor that are all referred to by the same name.

The Duke Of Windsor

The Windsor delivers a symmetrical and solid triangular knot that works best with a spread collar. This knot is also mistakenly referred to as the “Double Windsor” knot.

The irony of this method is that, this method originated from Windsor and a more funny thing is that the Duke of Windsor didn’t use it!!! lmao
