We would like to introduce you to the world's most popular tie knot: the Double Windsor. Also, simply called Windsor for short. It gives a beautiful volume and provides a powerful appearance, in short a real statement knot that should be a standard part of your knot tying repertoire.
Most people know that this double knot is named after the Duke of Windsor, but what most people don't know is that he never wore the knot himself. The Duke was a fan of thick knots, but he had a different trick for achieving volume. He had his ties made in a high silk binding (dense silk per cm2) with the addition of an extra thick lining. The Duke's nephew, Lord Lichfield, tried unsuccessfully in the 1960s to invalidate the myth by photographing the Duke as he tied his tie.
