Eldredge Knot

The Eldredge Knot was invented in 2007 by Jeffrey Eldredge. Although it is a newer knot, this is an excellent knot to wear that displays both individual strength and confidence. The Eldredge knot is a great choice when attending high profile dinners/events. It can also be worn in professional jobs such as in the legal, banking, or sales fields or in managerial positions. The Eldredge knot can be tied using any basic tie. It creates a large, braided knot that is sure to stand out from your typical day-to-day tie knots.

How to Tie a Tie – Eldredge Knot

  1. The wide end(W) of the tie will begin on the left side and the narrow end(N) will begin on the right side. The wide end of the tie should be resting on the tip of your belt, providing enough length on the narrow end(N) of the tie to complete the Eldredge Knot.
  2. Cross the narrow end(N) to the left, over the top of the wide end(W) of the tie.
  3. Pull the narrow end(N) under the wide end(W) and to the right.
  4. Now pull the narrow end(N) straight up over the neck loop and towards the center of the knot.
  5. Take the narrow end(N) back down, under the neck loop and to the left.
  6. Take the narrow end(N) across the front of the wide end(W) to the right. And then pull the narrow end(N) under and up the neck loop. Make sure to not pull too tightly so you leave some slack across the front of the wide end(W), creating a small loop.
  7. Pull the narrow end(N) down to the left and around the back of the wide end(W), to the right. Do not pull tight but leave the loop loose.
  8. Take the narrow end(N) and pull it across the front of the wide end(W), to the left, and through the previously created diagonal loop. Pull and tighten the narrow end(N).
  9. Pull the narrow end(N) up and around the neck loop to the left.
  10. Take the narrow end(N) up to the center. Pull down and under the neck loop to the right. Do not pull tight but leave the loop loose.
  11. Take the narrow end(N) and pull it across the front of the wide end(W), to the left, and through the previously created diagonal loop.
  12. Now tighten the tie and conceal the narrow end(N) in your shirt or behind your neck loop under the shirt collar on the left side.
