How to Tie a Cavendish Knot

The Cavendish Knot is a relatively large and thick tying method. It is similar in its thickness to the Windsor knot, and differs by its being slightly asymmetrical and less triangular (like a combination between the half-Windsor look with the thickness of the full Windsor). The Cavendish tying method will be a good choice for too long too thin neckties. The advantage of this tying method, unlike other bulky tying methods, is for its being tied from the regular starting position (not upside-down, like the Balthus knot), which is great news for those who don’t like the look of the inverted narrow end of the necktie when it excesses the front part of the necktie.
