It is best suited to a dress shirt and can accommodate most widths and textures of neckwear” Lee on Tie knots: The Windsor Knot. The Windsor knot is named after the stylish Duke of Windsor. It's a knot that is normally worn with a cut away or wide spread collar, as it is a fat knot or you could also use the half Windsor which is a more modern knot and smaller. Either can be worn to any event. But a very popular and British style.
