Nicky Knot

The Nicky Knot is an underrated knot; you will not often find it in a list of popular tie knots. However, we would like to include it in our selection of knots for you, because it is relatively easy to master, and it truly is everyone's friend. Almost every tie can be tied with this knot and with the Nicky Knot you can look good on all occasions. It is also very easy to take apart; pull the narrow end through your knot and the knot will come unfastened.

  1. Hang the tie around the collar with the back facing forward, the wide part on the right and the narrow part slightly above navel height. The exact height depends on the stature and thickness of the tie. Only the wide part is used when tying the tie.

  2. Cross the wide part horizontally behind the narrow part of the tie.

  8. Tighten the knot by pulling the wide part down and position the knot as desired.


  • Result: In terms of size, it is between the Four in Hand and Half Windsor. It seems to be perfectly symmetrical, but technically it is not.
  • When to wear? This versatile knot can be worn with many types of ties, but we think it is especially appropriate for narrow ties. It requires relatively little fabric, so it is certainly suitable for tall men or men with broader, larger build.
  • Difficulty: ** (2 out of 5)

Nicky Knot: Background

In 1989 the Pratt Knot was printed incorrectly in the Daily Telegraph and the Nicky Knot was discovered through this happy mistake. However, it later turned out that it already existed in Italy! The knot is named after the Nicky store in Milan. The owner, Ernesto Curami, even had brochures printed for his customers to explain this knot. The remarkable thing about this knot is that you put the tie around your neck upside down - with the lining to the front (just like with the Oriental Knot).

First class service. First class communication. First class products. What more can I say!

Excellent tie, silky soft material and extra long as advertised. Allows taller folk to tie knots that use more length.
Thrilled with the tie….absolutely perfect colour and quality. Service and delivery were without fault. About to order two further ties!

Excellent service and quality. I ordered replacement leather ends for braces. They arrived within a few days and I am very satisfied.
Sometimes the quality of on line purchases is not what is claimed. This company seems to be honest and what it says is what you get.

I attend many motorsport awards yearly and wanted some braces that were in fitting. These were just prefect.
Quality is of the highest standard and beautifully made. Very pleased with my purchase.
Order process was simple, delivered in a timely manner and communication was good.
I’d highly recommended and would definitely order again in future.

I ordered a pair of braces for my husband as part of his Christmas gift. He was over the moon with them and they are of really lovely quality. The colours in the two-tone set I chose go really well together and he\'s already worn them multiple times over the holidays. Delivery was also very quick!
