Hi , everybody .
I'm Patrick Navan and I'm the Thai guy and this is my youtube channel and I'm doing how to videos on every single neckie not known to man .
And I'm bringing that to you .
So if that's the kind of thing you're looking for , then please subscribe .
All right .
This time , I've got my last invention for this week that I'm bringing out and it's been inspired by the A K not , which is nicknamed the Mayor of India Knock and Boris Newco invention called the Vix Knot , which is also named after the Matrix movies .
So this time , uh from the same inspiration , I'm a big fan of the Matrix movies .
I'm calling this one the Matrix not .
And I want to show you how to do that right now .
So first thing is you thought I was gonna say , put it over your neck and get started , but this knot is tied with both ends .
So you're going to need to figure out the first thing is how much do you want on the bottom loop .
So that's how we're gonna start out and the , and the rest is tied with the big end .
So let's have a closer look at that .
And of course , if you want it all to show , I was wearing a waistcoat , not a vest .
The vests are typically these days cut really high and jackets are cut high .
So you would need something that's a little bit lower cut , uh , to make this work .
So , let's get started on showing you how to do this .
So , here we go , we're gonna drape your little end over your necktie and you want it to be just enough length to do this loop like so , and now you're gonna tie the rest of it with the big end .
So holding on , holding on to your loop with your thumb , you're gonna wrap the big end around the part , the loop that you got here .
I'm gonna start pinching this with my other two fingers that I have free .
And now I'm going to feed , I'm going to feed this through the back here .
I wanna go twice around like this .
So there's one two , I'm just pushing it through with my thumb and my fingers .
So all the way around .
So now I've kept my loop at the bottom intact .
I've got my fingers through here .
I want to sort of stretch out , give myself a little bit of extra room .
Oops , I wasn't holding on to everything .
All right now , I got it back .
All together .
Everything is still in place .
Taking the big end to pinch the two ends together .
I'm gonna remove my finger .
I have a hole there .
Now , I could feed this through with my thumb and my fingers .
I'm pinching this whole knot together .
I'm gonna pull the remainder of this all the way through until the very end here where I wanted to fold just right .
I wanted to twist on the other side .
I'm gonna pull this tight .
This is going to stay loose here .
But I , I was pulling this part tight so it doesn't fall apart .
Now , from here , I've got the seam side facing out .
This is your knot that's gonna be in the center of your neck , going to take my big end again , pinch it , pinch it in half , fold it in half .
I'm gonna feed it back through that same hole .
So now when it's on your neck , you will have the seam side facing out all the way around .
So at this part , it gets easier .
Let's put this on our neck now .
So over your hand onto your neck .
Yeah , I know this is a bit of an unusual way of doing it , but that's how I figured it out .
So from here , this is the part where we cinch it up to your neck all the way pulling on the end that you pulled through , leaving your loop here .
You can't mess up your loop .
This is like the prize part of my whole creation here .
So now as you might find like this is quite loose to pull through .
Now , being careful , this is how you tighten it up .
Uh There is the top end of your loop here that this is the end of it .
You don't want to pull on that end , you wanna pull on the back end .
So holding on to your knot like so you can tighten up this loop that's in behind , that holds your neck , your part that goes around your neck and now you can cinch it up and you could be , you could feel good about it being secure .
Now , we've got the big end .
That's the last part where this is where the sort of sort of loop and wrap come through .
So feeding this part through the back of your neck .
I know it's all cinched up now , but that's the way it's gonna be .
So I just pushed up through there .
I don't wanna tighten it .
I don't wanna , if I pull this too tight , it's gonna drag this part up and twist it and look funny .
So I leave a little bit at the very end hiding there .
It's all gonna get hidden by this anyways .
So this goes underneath and it feeds up and through like down the , the , the front portion and back down .
And if you're familiar with the A knot or the cape knot or engine , you're taking the big end through that loop .
Like , so now you can tighten that up to how you see fit .
I like having it a little bit loose .
I like having this sort of wide mouth .
Look here to my knot and now we have this bottom part here .
This is our finishing touch .
I'm gonna pull this through and there we go .
That's how you do the matrix .
Now , pull down your collar and ready to rock and roll .
That is how the matrix knot is done .
I hope you guys like that .
