Prince Albert Knot

Doesn’t everyone need to feel like royalty from time to time? There is a tie just for that and it is called the Prince Albert Knot. In this case the name is only a name because there is no actual proof that Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband, wore this time. The history of this tie is somewhat blurry but don’t let that deter you from confidently tying it and showing it off. The name has Prince in it so that is good enough for me.

On that note it is a pretty simplistic knot. It is both long and thin. It doesn’t draw too much attention and can easily be used in a professional setting. I don’t recommend colors usually for ties but if you are really trying to display royalty or prominence the color purple would suit well with the Prince Albert Knot. Purple represents wealth, royalty, and nobility to name a few.
