The Eldredge tie knot is a creative way to style your tie. Aren’t you bored of tying your tie the same way every day? It’s getting too basic, repetitive, and boring. That’s why we present to you this innovative technique. Read on and follow the steps carefully.

A brief history

The Eldredge tie knot is a 15-step necktie knot that that gives your tie a little more style. Difficult to achieve yet visually appealing. Jeffrey Eldredge created it in 2007 and became a famous practice in 2008. The Eldredge knot is made by utilizing the tiny end as the functional end.

The steps

In contrast to the great majority of tie knots. The little end is hidden beneath the shirt collar after the knotting and tying are finished. The knot is rather huge and provides a tapering fishtail plaited look. Now in order to complete it, you must follow these steps:

  • Begin by tying the knot with the broad end on the left and the little end on the right. The broad end’s tip should lay on top of your belt buckle. Only the active (small) end should be moved.
  • To the left, the little end is positioned over the wide end.
  • To the right and under the broad end.
  • In the direction of the neck loop, up to the center.
  • To the left, via the neck loop.
  • To the right, across the front. Then, from beneath, up into the neck loop.
  • Down to the left and around to the right around the rear of the broad end. Keep this section free-flowing.
  • Bring it across the front, to the left, and through the loop, you formed before.
  • To tighten, pull the little end to the left.
  • In the direction of the neck loop, up to the center. To the left, down into the neck loop.
  • In the direction of the neck loop, up to the center. To the right, down through the neck loop. Keep this section free-flowing.
  • Through the loop produced in the previous step and across the front to the left.
  • To tighten, pull the little end to the left.
  • Tuck the remaining tiny end behind the left side of the neck loop.
  • Show off your Eldredge tie knot tying skills.
