There's more ways than one to tie a tie

Easter is almost here and I always look forward to seeing all the new Easter dresses the ladies are wearing and the stylish ties the men will be wearing come Easter Sunday.

Well keeping that in mind I was wondering how many of you knew a mans necktie could be tied in more ways than one? Personally I've always thought a mans tie was so boring. How in the world the style of a tie has stayed in style for so many years is beyond me. But to my surprise I found out there are more ways than one to tie a tie. Because of this I though I would pass on info to those who have been in the dark like I have and would appreciate knowing there's a choice in the knot. I just love infographics.

How To Tie the New Knot
"While the Windsor or Four-in-hand knots are the all-time classics of tie knots, The Hudson's Bay suggest taking a look at a few new stylish knots that are sure to turn heads: the Eldredge knot, the Trinity knot and the Cape knot."

About / History / Origin : (wikipedia
The modern necktie spread by Europe traces back to the time of the Thirty Years' War (1618–1648) when Croatian mercenaries from the Croatian Military Frontier in French service, wearing their traditional small, knotted neckerchiefs, aroused the interest of the Parisians. Due to the slight difference between the Croatian word for Croats, Hrvati, and the French word, Croates, the garment gained the name "cravat" ("cravate" in French).[2] The boy-king Louis XIV began wearing a lace cravat about 1646, when he was seven, and set the fashion for French nobility. This new article of clothing started a fashion craze in Europe; both men and women wore pieces of fabric around their necks. From its introduction by the French king, men wore lace cravats, or jabots, that took a large amount of time and effort to arrange. These cravats were often tied in place by cravat strings, arranged neatly and tied in a bow.

Mark your calendar... here's a Holiday to Remember:

International Necktie Day
is celebrated on October 18 in Croatia and in various cities around the world, e.g. in Dublin, Tübingen, Como, Tokyo, Sydney and other towns.

What else for today April 14
