I have shared many ways to tie a tie. Here are some tie knot examples.
If you are like me, you may be wondering how many ultimate ways to tie a necktie. Well, you can save your brain cells. As explained in this book by Thomas Fink and Yong Mao, there are many ways to tie a tie theoretically, but only 85 practical ways to tie a tie. They proved the 85 ways and shown all the ways in the book. However, that’s not the only reason I am featuring this book today.
What fascinated me was how author Fink and Mao approach unknown questions. Being research physicists at the University of Cambridge, the authors dealt the problem with knot theory and topology. they developed a theory of knot sequences as random walks on a triangular lattice. It’s a phenomenon book. Check it out. Not only your ties will look different, but also you will be inspired to look at problems differently.
And lastly, here is a video tutorial for how to tie a tie – the popular half Windsor knot. Enjoy!
