How to Tie a St. Andrew Knot

If you are looking for a nice, but modest node to a particular collar, you can try first of all hybrid node.But if you need more volume, the best solution is St. Andrew Knot.

St. Andrew Knot is characterized not only the width but also a slight asymmetry. If you need to collar seemingly paradoxical node – large and modest at the same time, you should try this knot of ties with different material.


Ties wool, which in England is considered to be inappropriate in the business world and in Italy wears quite often, should be carefully chosen than silk. Reaching for the single-color woolen tie, toned, never make a mistake. After reversal of silk ties woolen’ll have to use other nodes, because initially, as in the case of coarsely woven silk knots go higher than those you are used to (unless ties have become more flexible after prolonged use).

Depending on how much take out a knot at the end, you can form it as a “three-dimensional” – then the lower part of the node comes off a little more than a collar, which makes the material arranged elegantly tie a bow on the shirt. This is the optimum arrangement of the tie, which however can not be achieved in the case of each node, or of any material.
