  • About This Knot

    Originally this knot is called the Ediety, just for fun, I am going to pretend it was invented by a Frenchman but don’t quote me on that. It gained momentum when it was seen in the Matrix 2 being donned by the always-posh Merovingian, which is the name I prefer. This knot is very special, it looks as if your tie is actually wearing a little miniature tie! It will turn heads. It isn’t all flowers and rainbows however. This knot needs more prep than most. You need to hide how the tie ends when wearing the Merovingian knot. Be it with a vest, cardigan, blazer, sport coat, or suit, you need to cover it up! The knot is important to show, the ends are important to hide.

  • Difficulty: High

    It isn’t any harder, from a folding perspective, than a Windsor. However the inverted orientation does up the ante. It is somewhat disorienting to tie it until you get the hang of it. You just always feel like you aren’t doing it right until you are all the way done.

  • Fabric Consumption: High

    It has a high consumption but that hardly matters because you are planning to cover it up with a vest, cardigan, or suit right?

  • Symmetry: High

    It is just as symmetrical as the Windsor but that is hardly the talking point of this knot.

  • Style: Any

    Each different tie type brings something special to this knot. Experiment with all of the different ties you have to see which work the best. Sometimes paisley really looks outstanding when layered this way. Stripes also create a very cool effect. Of course with solids, you get to really bring emphasis to the knot itself.

  • Venue: Celebratory, Casual

    The knot is fun-loving and catchy. Take after the Merovingian from the Matrix and wear it out to a nice dinner.
