How to tie a Perfect Triangle

Getting your necktie’s knot to be a perfect triangle is a lost art. Here is an unusual knot, called the Shelby Knot. It’s especially odd because you actually start with the tie inside-out around your neck.

  1. Start with tie inside-out, wide end under.
  2. Take wide end over and under short end.
  3. Pull tight.
  4. Take wide end across to the right.
  5. Pull wide end under, then up behind, then over, then down through the inside of the knot. Finished.
  6. You can then adjust the knot to a perfect triangle.
