Download How To Tie Illustrations For Tie Knots 'Old Bertie' And 'The Double Four In Hand'.

If there were one skill I wish I had pursued with more vigour as a young man it is the art of drawing. All the greats in the arts were gifted with this skill and it made them effective communicators.

Richard Carroll, the Australian illustrator who is trying his luck in the Big Apple, has kindly finished for our readers downloadable and printable instructions for two knots I really enjoy, both the Old Bertie and The Double Four In Hand. Although I rarely wear long ties and these days have less frequent opportunities to wear a suit, I still believe it is imperative to know how to tie a decent tie knot.

The double four in hand I chose because of my love for the Instagram handle The Snob Report  and the Old Bertie out of respect for Parisian fashion blogger Hugo Jacomet and French tailor/designer Marc Guyot  .

With the Australian spring now upon us, consider both knots as a way to alerting other men in your vicinity that you are in the know. Wink. Wink.
