Windsor Knot

The Windsor knot (also known as the Full Windsor or the Double Windsor) is a wide and respected tying method. The Windsor knot shape is a relatively big, triangular and fully symmetric, providing a representative & confident look. The Windsor knot mostly used for formal occasions. The Windsor knot will be perfect for spread collar shirts and thin fabric materials because of the big knot created. Because of the Wide Knot shape, the tie tends to de-emphasize the look of a long neck and therefore will look fabulous for these people.
