A tie can be tied in various ways. The Four-in-Hand knot has been named after the way in which coachmen used to knot the reins together. The most popular knot for ties is the Windsor-knot. This knot has been named after Edward VIII, The Duke of Windsor, who promoted this thick knot. Mistakenly, this knot is sometimes called the double Windsor knot, since it concerns such a thick knot and due to the fact that a less voluminous knot also exists; the Half-Windsor knot.
