The Origin of the Double Windsor

Most people know that this double knot is named after the Duke of Windsor, but what most people don't know is that he never wore the knot himself. The Duke was a fan of thick knots, but he had a different trick for achieving volume. He had his ties made in a high silk binding (dense silk per cm2) with the addition of an extra thick lining. The Duke's nephew, Lord Lichfield, tried unsuccessfully in the 1960s to invalidate the myth by photographing the Duke as he tied his tie.
