You are what you wear. Ties can do the magic of making the monotonous office going shirts look like a million dollar thing. If a man can sport it well, he has easily managed to catch everyone's attention.
Here's a suggestive list of transforming a tie into a stunning knot.
1. The Eldredge Knot
As opposed to the vast majority of tie knots, this one is produced by using the small end as the active end, creating tapered fishtail braid-like effect. It's an elegant and subtle looking knot which will definitely leave a great impression.
2. The Trinity Knot
This knot which resembles the Celtic Triquetra is a three-way symmetry knot that looks attractive. The pattern converges at a central point, producing a very eye-catching effect. It might seem a bit intimidating at first glance, but the moves are very easy and simple.
3. The Van Wijk Knot
This slender and long knot creates a striking and unmistakable layered cylindrical effect. A very cool knot which is best suited for those who frequently wear narrow collared shirts and paired with a vest.
4. The Rose Knot
This knot is a perfect hit on V-Day. Get in touch with your romantic side as you suit up and tie this amorous neck tie knot, crafted in the shape of a rose.
5. The Ellie Knot
Easy to tie and carry, this simplified variant of the Eldredge knot consumes less fabric, leaving a tail that allows it to be tightened or loosened like a normal Windsor. It simply works best with semi-wide collar openings.
6. The Truelove Knot
It is a very difficult knot which requires a considerable amount of practise. Consider a striped tie for a pinwheel effect. The Truelove knot is divided into four quadrants which is a perfect go for teenagers to try something unique.
7. The Boutonniere Knot
For wide collar openings, this knot is a good option as it is characterized by its long loops.Ideally, it is best preferred for semi-formal occasions.
8. The Cape Knot
This loosened-up knot simply works best with mono-coloured ties and never passes unnoticed. It is simply the easier version of the Atlantic Knot, which has greatly improved its aesthetic value.
9. The Four in a Hand Knot
This slender, asymmetrical, easy to tie, self-releasing knot is best suited for the standard button-down dress shirt and works best with wide neck ties made from heavy fabrics. It is best suited to wear it on semi-formal events, when you wish to be discreet.
10. The Merovingian Knot
If you have seen The Matrix, you will easily recognize this knot sported by the Merovingian. A very special knot which looks like your tie is actually wearing another miniature tie.
11. The Kransy Hourglass Knot
To create the hourglass look, the four-in-hand knot with an additional knot is tied using the small end right beneath the main knot. It is impossible to adjust after being tied, so you need to get it perfectly right the first time.
Here's a short video on the Krasny Hourglass knot.
Quite an offbeat knot, it results in an inside-out knot that shows the intricate structure that's usually hidden on the back. It is worth trying for especially if you are headed for festivals or informal social gatherings.
13. The Fishbone Knot
This aesthetic work of tie artistry is in the shape of a fish-bone, hence the name. It's a wonderful formal knot that is increasingly gaining respect. While somewhat challenging to tie, it's definitely worth the effort, since it never fails to make the perfect impression.
14. The Linwood Taurus Knot
Make a statement with your look by tying this knot. An extraordinary work of symmetrical art, this knot's bull like appearance works especially for casual occasions. It is recommended for paisley or solid ties and wide collar shirts.

This knot blends well with wool ties, without causing too much bulk. It's a great alternative to the Pratt Knot that requires fewer moves, producing a symmetrical knot that will fill the semi-spread collar, if tied properly.
18. The Diagonal Knot
This is an unusual knot, asymmetrical in style which is best suited to serve for evening occasions. It goes well with a tie made of light fabric, in a solid colour, and with a subtle pattern, so as not to make the knot look very confusing while still retaining its additional details.
19. The Grantchester Knot
A large, thick and slightly asymmetrical tie knot, the Grantchester Knot looks highly sophisticated. The key to wearing this knot is to stick with silk or other lightweight materials, since knits or wool tend to look uncomfortably bulky.
20. The Onassis Knot
The Onassis Knot looks tricky but is very simple. You can comfortably loop the wide end of the tie behind and roll over the existing knot. Use with semi-wide or wide collar openings to enhance your appearance.
