video content Image generated by Wilowrid

Welcome back to our series on how to tie tie nuts today , I'm going to show you how to tie the Kelvin nut .

Basically , the knot is just like the Oriental where you loop the long and once around more that creates a bigger knot for more volume and a slightly different look in terms of size here , I'm wearing a navy blue Jacker tie from Fort Belvedere .

Um It's rather substantial , it's heavy , Italian silk and so the knot gets even bigger than with a thinner tie .

Normally , it can still work with collar pins .

Um In case you choose a thick tie like this one , I would recommend you use an Oriental knot or a foreign hand knot just to keep the knots smaller .

The Kelvin nut is like the oriental .

And uh you want the sewn side up to start , you have the slim end is gonna be much shorter and you want about 1.5 hands above your waistband , but it depends on how long your are so slim end like so and now you a little bit around half and then you tighten , you tighten it up , you pinch it with your fingers and now you go around once more .

So one more loop and now you take the wide end , you come through from the back here , pull it tight and um get it through the knot here .

You just want to go through the last layer , not both layers , just the last layer you create with your knot , you hold it place gently and pull through like .

So now you want your little dimple in there , pinch and just pull OK .

Once you're ready , you pull in the short end slightly , you adjust it until you like the look the Kelvin knot with a thick tie .

Like this one , I prefer kind of a medium spread to cutaway collar .

You can see here .

It kind of accentuates the shoulders in a way and it's wide enough to accommodate big or not like that .

If you use a thinner tie , uh probably a medium spread is ideal , but I would not recommend wearing really strong cutaways and classic colors may work if it's thinner .

If it's a little thicker , you may run into troubles .

But um yeah , just test it and see what works best for you .

Uh that's you don't have to tie it this way , but you kind of do need to , to make the knot so big because you want to capture as much of the fat part of the tie as you can in here .
