Aspects to consider

√ Large or elaborate knots are suitable for special occasions;
√ Large tie knots are suitable for ties made of thin fabric such as silk;
√ For formal occasions it is preferable to limit yourself to a simple, medium-sized knot;
√ When choosing the type of tie knot, you must consider the opening of the collar from the shirt, the width of the tie as well as the print on the tie;
√ As for the length – the tie must meet the belt from the trousers. DO NOT overlap with it, nor leave a gap between the two accessories;
