Prince Albert Knot
This slightly asymmetrical, elegant tie knot is a little bulkier than the four in hand knot but is similar to the Victoria and double Windsor knots. Its double wraps add a subtle detail that is the signature of a well-dressed man. The name may mislead you with regards to the history of the knot as there is no evidence that it was worn by Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria. Nonetheless, look stylish by sporting this knot that is sometimes referred to as the double four in hand knot.
