You Tie A Tie Knot To Fit Your Shirt Collar

The easiest tie knot that I use is the oriental knot because it is small, simple, and it matches the style of shirt collar that makes up the majority of my wardrobe. The most professional knot to wear really is the knot that best fits the collar of your shirt, and is comfortable to the wearer. Chances are that you'll be wearing that choker all day and if it's not comfortable then you'll not be comfortable in it. Which is important if you want to look and feel like a professional.

The tie should fill the space between the front of your shirt collar above the buttons. Keep in mind that if the knot you choose is more complex it will typically be larger as well. However, you don't want to go too far with this as a knot that is too large will end up under your shirt collar and not be fully visible. If you happen to have a tie that is thicker this will be the case also.

The knot of your tie will draw attention to your face, this is a good thing in the professional world of business and dress. We want the personal encounters in our professional lives to be of influence and good impression. So you tie a tie to have impact on this idea and complement your professional appearance with a splash of personality and character.

Brief History Of The Tie

In the 1820's, men would wear a cravat around the neck of their dress. The cravat descended from a style worn by a military unit called the Croats, in the 1600's. The cravat was also tied in certain styles that could imply a mans wealth status. The modern tailored tie came about in the late 1800's and has evolved through to the present day, it has changed in its design and manufacturing process. It is now longer to compensate for the fact that men used to wear their trousers higher, much closer to the bellybutton. The tie is fashionable and is a sexy piece of attire. When worn with confidence and in comfort, a man appears sophisticated, intelligent, and powerful. Imagine what the devil looks like in a suit and tie. Maybe he invented it?
