The knot was named by the two Cambridge University physicists who worked in the Cavendish laboratories and developed over 80 different ways to tie a tie. It is a smart knot, very similar in shape to a four-in-hand knot and perfect for most kinds of ties.
Drape the tie over your neck, with the wide end on your right side.
Cross the narrow end of the tie over the wide end.
Wrap the wide end back over the narrow end from left to right.
Bring the wide end up and under the knot from right to left.
Move the wide end of the tie to the center and underneath the knot from the center to the right.
Bring the wide end of the tie over the knot from right back to left.
Pass the wide end under the narrow end from the left back to the center.
Bring the wide end down and through the loop in front.
Gently tighten the knot by pulling down on the narrow end and sliding the knot up to your collar.
