Learn This Subtly Stylish Necktie Knot

 

While you may be tempted to sport the same old four-in-hand or Windsor knot every time you don a suit and tie, sometimes a fresh take on your tie is the detail that makes all the difference. For a look that’s fit for a king, try the Prince Albert Knot the next time you’re getting ready for a formal occasion.

The Prince Albert Knot is a dapper detail that creates an elegant appearance. With Queen Victoria’s husband as a namesake, this knot features a double wrap that produces a sleek, elongated appearance with hints of an ascot aesthetic. The perfect accompaniment to narrow-collared shirts and more formal occassions, this necktie knot will leave you feeling subtly stylish.
