This knot is called the Miniature. It has that name because the knot itself is so small in nature. It has two distinct characteristics: it is tied using the small end of the tie, and it exposes the reverse side of the tie on the knot. Usually this is where the unsightly seam would be, but with a reversible tie (such as the ties from theMagnetie.com) this is a benefit. Rock your reversible ties in style with the miniature knot. Perfect for narrow ties and narrow collars. Another bonus is how little fabric this knot requires. Even for you freakishly tall guys, there should be no length issues!

This "knot" or rather, absence of knot, was first seen on the Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis in 1989. Not sure if he is the inventor, but he is certainly the innovator. I have seen several ways to tie it (well only two) one is the Full Windsor base and the other is a Four-in-Hand base. Both end the same way, and both end up looking the same. I prefer the Windsor variation for two reasons: it is a firmer knot, and will knot come loose on it's own, and it creates a symmetrical knot so it's easier to keep the top of the Onassis horizontal. But like I said, it hardly matters, start it whichever way feels more comfortable to you.

What if I told you, a standard necktie can be tied into a bow tie knot? What do you do with all your damaged, frayed, or stained ties? Throw them away? I hope not! Keep them in a forgotten drawer in your closet? Well, it's time to crack that drawer open because I am about to show you how to breath new life into your old ties. Let's call it a rebirth. They make perfectly good bow ties with zero modifications. Just watch the video below and breath new life into all of your dejected, creased, frayed, and stained neckties. This works best with thinner, lighter ties, but with a little effort I am confident any tie can make a fine bow tie. As a matter of fact, I purchased a $1 necktie from the dollar store (the quality is obviously terrible) and even that rag made an excellent bow tie!
