Oriental Knot

If one knot can be designated as the basic knot, then it is the Oriental Knot. A super simple knot that fits perfectly in an instant. Ideal if you have limited time or if you are a beginner in tie knotting. It is extremely popular in China, comparable to the popularity of the Four in Hand knot in the west, which it has a lot in common with.

Background Information: The Oriental Knot

Not very surprisingly, this basic knot is also known as the Simple Knot. What’s unusual is that you start by hanging this tie around your neck so that the lining hangs forward. This is an uncommon approach, with only 2 of the 8 knots that we have presented to you is this the case. Even after the knot is complete, the “tail” (the narrow part of the tie) remains turned around. The front of the tie is of course worn with the lining to the rear.

Prompt and courteous replies when asking for information regarding an order. The brown braces feel of high quality and look very smart. Looking forward to wearing them.
