Vidalia knot is a Linwood creation and is an elegant aesthetic knot that can boost up the charm of any attire. Let’s get to know the simplest way of tying the Vidalia knot by following this step by step guide.

Step-1 Drape the neck tie around your collar in such a way that the wide end hangs on the left shoulder and reaches a few inches above the beltline while the narrow end is on the right shoulder and a couple of inches longer than the wide end. 

Step-2 Pinch the wide end to create a dimple and cross it over to the right side form underneath the narrow end.

Step-3 Feed the narrow end underneath and up through the back of the collar loop on the left side. Bring it back down on the same side. This would create a loop around the collar loop. Let’s refer to this as ‘Loop 1’.

Step-4 Take the little end around the back of the forming knot into the right region.

Step-5 Feed the narrow end up through the collar loop and back down on the same side. This will create the second loop, this time on the right side of the knot. We’ll refer to this one as ‘Loop 2’.

Step-6 Feed the tip of the narrow end through Loop 2 and then pass it through Loop 1. 

Step-7 With the narrow end now in the left region, feed it through the back of the collar loop and bring it down on the front of the same side.

Step-8 Take the narrow end around the back of the tie into the right region.

Step-9 Feed it up through the front of the collar loop. This would create a big loop on the right side of the knot. 

Step-10 Feed the tip of the narrow end through this big loop and bring it back down behind the wide end.

Step-11 Pull on the wide end to tighten the knot and push it against the collar.

Step-12 Conceal the narrow end well behind the wide end. 

And you’re good to go! Vidalia knot created a lot of buzz in the fashion industry after its creation. It’s one of the most extravagant knots known to man today and should be worn only to festive occasions and elite gatherings. We recommend solid colors because patterns and stripes would give a chaotic look due to the many intricate folds of the knot itself.
