“A well-tied tie is the first serious step in life.” — Oscar Wilde

Well, we agree with Oscar Wilde on this. The tie is an essential component of any kind of formal attire. The kind of tie a man wears and the way in which he wears it, says a lot about the man.

While you can always experiment with the fabrics, patterns, and thickness of a tie, an alternative way to make a tie stand out is by varying the knot itself. A unique tie knot sets you apart from the rest and shows that you take your dressing seriously.

Tying one of the unique knots may seem like a lot of extra work but a little practice is all it takes. Here are four great tie knots to try:

1) Merovingian Knot:
Before you ask, no, this knot has no connection with the Matrix movie trilogy. Originally called as the Ediety, this tie knot is very elegant and intricate and actually looks like your tie knot is wearing a little tie. Save this one for a special occasion as putting it together can get quite difficult; save the effort an exclusive evening. Wear it with with a wide-spread ‘English’ collar shirt. Cover it up with a blazer, coat or suit to highlight the knot and cover the ends.

Here’s a short video that illustrates how to tie it:

As the name suggests, this knot looks like the aperture of a camera and quite fittingly, looks great in photographs. With its circular shape, it’s the perfect choice for the addition of a brooch or other embellishment. This knot works well with patterned ties in bold colours. It is perfect for weddings and other formal occasions.

3) Truelove Knot:
An extravagantly finished product which can sometimes resemble a heart, a cross or a T-shape, the Truelove knot is great for celebratory occassions. This knot is a very complicated to tie and requires a considerable practice. It consumes a lot of fabric so go for an extra-long tie. Pick a narrow tie with flexible fabric for this knot and wear it with well-fitted vests, suits, and cardigans. Striped ties can achieve impressive effects with this knot!

Go with patterned ties or ties with small stripes for this knot. It might look complicated, but it’s not.
