This Wednesday morning, a green with a Diagonal .

This is the version of the Kelvin knot where the tie is out through both the horizontal loops of the knot, not to be confused with the novelty knot also called the Diagonal, which I don't endorse.

Put my tie on to go drop my wife off at the Miss Universe qualifying pageant or whatever it might be called. Since it's Saturday here is my rarely used purple spotted with a Christensen .

This morning, a brown Paisley with a Persian .

Paisley is in Scotland but the pattern is Persian. The knot is probably not actually from Persia.

This Wednesday evening, posting the necktie knot photo that I forgot to post this morning.

Here is a green Naga pattern with a Siam .

This morning, a yellow elephant pattern with a Cavendish . Pictured in the public van, so the light wasn't great.

Today, a brown with a Balthus , the largest of the named knots using the traditional moves.

Today, a green straight with a Victoria . Since it's a very narrow straight tie, there's no dimple.

This Tuesday morning I have the following announcement: I'm wearing a pink with a Christensen knot.

Light blue with a Van Vijk .

This is kind of a novelty knot, but unusual among them in that it can actually be described as a walk on a triangular lattice, like the standard tie knots.

This morning, a brown tartan wool with a cross Victoria .

This is a Victoria knot with the wide end tucked behind the two last horizontal loops, rather than just the final one. In other words this relates to the Victoria knot in the same way that the Christensen relates to the Manhattan knot.

Today, a green with that variant of the Victoria that is called a cross Victoria.

This Tuesday morning, after a heroic run in the park in the drizzle, a pink with a Christensen .
