The Half Wind­sor

Rules For The Modern Man - - Rules For The Modern Man -

Whether you went to prep school, church on the weekend, or school as­sem­blies, ty­ing the Wind­sor is some­thing we all learnt through the old rhyme: “The rab­bit went round the tree twice, un­der the bush, leapt over the log and down into his hole.” The Wind­sor is one of the most ubiq­ui­tous styles of neck­tie knots, but it’s also de­signed to work with a semi-spread or full-spread col­lar. It is the duke of neck­tie knots, the no­bil­ity of noose-tight­en­ing that you pick up from your younger school days. The Wind­sor is one of the most for­mal knots you can make with a neck­tie, but there are a few other vari­a­tions you should know. The half-wind­sor is the ca­sual sib­ling to its royal cousin, and is far more con­ve­nient to tie. It also forms a smaller knot, that is suited for a nar­rower spread or for less for­mal oc­ca­sions. It bears all the qual­i­ties of the Wind­sor, but with half the so­bri­ety and dou­ble the en­ter­tain­ment.
