A Knot (and Blog) to Know
Andrew Roidoulis started his blog, Eight-in-Hand, simply to catalog his growing collection of vintage ties, but he's quickly garnered an audience inspired by his color and texture pairing. He frequently utilizes a little-known knot known as the Oriental or simple knot. "Ties of an older vintage are generally a good deal shorter than those produced today," says Roidoulis. "A small, simple knot gives me the extra length I require and is definitely useful for the bulky wool ties."
