Want to wear your tie with attitude? While not recommended for a job interview or court room appearance, the Trinity knot has its time and place. It is a fun, creative, and unconventional way to wear your ties. I like this knot, for instance, when wearing my tie under a V-neck sweater.
Trinity Knot Step by Step Instructions
Tired of the classic shirt and tie look? Then spice things up by learning how to tie your ties with the Trinity knot – an exotic tie knot that breaks all classic tie rules. What makes the look different besides the look of the knot, is the way it is tied. Unlike other knots, the trinity is tied with the narrow end of the tie. Ready for the challenge? Then follow these 12 steps:
Lay the tie around your neck with the narrow end hanging lower than the wide end. Take the narrow end and place it over the wide end. The wide end is not used to tie this knot. Therefore, keep it at a length you are happy with. I suggest near the center of your belt buckle.
Take the narrow end and wrap it around the the portion of your necktie that goes around your collar.
Pull the narrow end down and tight. Then take the narrow end behind the wide end of the tie.
Now take the narrow end and warp over the part of the tie that goes around your collar.
Pull the narrow end tight and down.
Then again, take the narrow and and go over the wide end of the tie.
For a second time take the narrow and and pull through the gap between collar and that portion of the tie that goes around your collar, but don’t pull tight.
Take the narrow and and push through the loop on top of the knot. Don’t pull too tight quite yet.
Put the narrow and behind the wide end of the tie. Then pull through the loop on top of the knot that was created in the previous step (step #8).
Pull the knot tight. Because of the multiple wrappings you may have to tug and pull gently on different parts of the knot.
Whatever portion of the narrow end is left over is now hidden by tugging it under your shirt collar.
And your are done. Fantastic job my friend!
