St Andrew’s Knot

One of our favorite tie knots is the relatively unknown St Andrew’s Knot. We made an effort to give it some of its more deserved recognition, because it is the perfect choice if you cannot pick between the volume of the Half Windsor and the Double Windsor. It is exactly in between! In addition, it gives a great depth to the knot, so you can also make a nice dimple under it with your finger.

St Andrew’s Knot

  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.

  • Result: It is a bit narrower in shape than the Windsor Knots and a little less asymmetrical than the Four in Hand.
  • When to wear? It is a fairly formal knot, for a night out with friends you might prefer a casual Four in Hand, but in the workplace and ceremonies St Andrew’s Knot is the way to go. It is suitable for all ties with a normal thickness and width.
  • Difficulty: ** (2 out of 5)
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!
