Balthus Knot

If you are someone who has a bold lifestyle and really wants to stand out from the crowd then the Balthus Knot is the perfect tie knot for you! This is one of THE BIGGEST and BOLDEST ties around and definitely fits the saying, ‘Bigger is Better.’ The size of this knot will make a statement at any event you plan to attend.

A few additional recommendations would be to use a thinner tie when tieing the Balthus because of the amount of times the wide end will wrap around the narrow end of the tie. The end result will be a broad, symmetrical tie.
