4. How to Tie the Trinity Knot
You can advance to more complex alternatives as you become more adept at the fundamentals of tie tying. The Trinity Knot has a chic appearance based on the Trinity emblem.
The Trinity Knot is a little trickier to tie than the Windsor and four-in-hand knots because of its more intricate pattern, but it looks great at formal events.
- Drape the necktie around your collar with the seam facing inward and the thick end hanging on your right where you want the finished length of the tie to be.
- Cross the narrow end diagonally in front of the thick end, making an X, and tuck it up under the loop around your neck.
- Bring the narrow end back over the top of the loop.
- Pass the narrow end horizontally behind the thick end.
- Flip the narrow end over the top of the loop around your collar.
- Feed the tip of the narrow end down and out underneath the loop around your neck, on the far right side of the knot.
- Bring the narrow end horizontally across the front of the knot from right to left. Slip a finger underneath the horizontal band this creates.
- Bring the narrow end up underneath the loop around your collar and down through the horizontal band. Slide a finger underneath the narrow end just above the knot.
- Pass the narrow end around behind the thick end from right to left.
- Feed the tip of the narrow end up over the loop around your collar and through the small vertical loop you reserved in Step 8.
- Pull the narrow end all the way through the vertical loop, still angling diagonally upward and to your right, and snug it down.
- Pull all the slack out of the knot and adjust as necessary to make the three visible folds identical in size and angle. Hide the narrow end either behind the thick end or under the loop around your collar.
