1.4 in Hand Knot
1. 四手结

Named after a 19th Century Gentleman's Club of the same name, the Four-in-Hand is the reigning champion of necktie knots. Its popularity stems from its simplicity and versatility. It is easy to tie, slender, tapered, mildly asymmetrical and self-releasing. If you only learn one knot, make it the Four-in-Hand.
根据19世纪绅士俱乐部的名字取名,四手结是领结中最流行的一种。它之所以受欢迎源于它简易方便及用途广泛的优点。四手结操作简单,形状修长,呈锥形,适度不均匀对称,自动拆卸。如果你只想学习一种打领结的方法,那就选择四手结吧。

2. Kelvin Knot
2. 开尔文结

The Kelvin necktie knot is named after Lord Kelvin (William Thomson, 1824-1907) a mathematical physicist who contributed to the theory of knots in relation to atomic structure. The Kelvin is an extension of the Simple knot. Like the Simple knot, the Kelvin starts with the tie lying inside out resulting in an inverted tail. This knot produces a lithe and tidy knot similar in size to the Four-in-Hand but slightly fuller and more angular.
开尔文领结取名于开尔文勋爵(威廉·汤姆逊,1824-1907),一位能把绳结理论联系到原子结构的数学物理学家。开尔文结是单结的拓展。如同单结的打法,开尔文结首先把领带的主体从底部向外部包围,颠倒领带的尾部。这个结形成一个柔软灵活且整齐的结体,与四手结的大小相仿,但领结更丰满和角度分明。

3.Bow Tie
3. 蝴蝶结

The bow tie is a descendant of the knotted cravat. It was born from the need for neckwear that was easier to wear than the cravat and that would last throughout a more active day. By the end of the 19th century, the butterfly and batwing bow tie were commonplace. Black bow ties were worn with dinner jackets and white bow ties with evening tails. Today bow ties are mainly worn on formal occasions, however, in the past decade bow ties for everyday wear have seen a rise in popularity. A bow tie is perfect for any man who likes to stand out among his peers.
蝴蝶结是从三角领巾结发展而来的。这种领结的产生源于对领巾携带的轻便性的追求,这样就能在一天的活动中更灵活方便。在19世纪末,蝴蝶型和蝙蝠翼型的蝴蝶结已经随处可见了。黑色蝴蝶结用以搭配晚礼服夹克,而白色蝴蝶结则搭配燕尾服。如今蝴蝶结主要在正式场合中使用。然而,在过去的十年里,蝴蝶结在日常使用上也越来越受大众欢迎了。蝴蝶结对于任何一位想要在同伴中吸引眼球的男士都非常奏效。

4. Half Windsor Knot
4.半温莎结(十字结)

The Half Windsor knot is an extremely versatile knot. Unlike what the name suggests, the Half Windsor knot is actually closer to three-quarters the size of the Windsor knot. The Half Windsor is medium in size, nearly symmetrical and, when tied correctly, it produces a deep and substantial dimple. Best used with neckties of a medium to light thickness.
半温莎结是一种用途极其广泛的领结。与它的名字不太相符,这种领结的大小实际上更接近温莎结的四分之三。半温莎结中等大小,基本对称,而且如果打结的方式正确,就会形成一个深凹的酒窝。这种打领结方法最适宜使用中等到稍有厚度的领带。
