The new clip from TV Rock vs Dukes of Windsor - The Others! Additional shooting & editing by Clint Wood.
Legendary dandy the Duke of Windsor discusses meeting Wallis Simpson, the future Duchess of Windsor.
The Windsor knot, also (wrongly) known as the "Double-Windsor" (a non-existing enormous 16-move knot), is the most well known knot in the world.
The Windsor is a large, symmetrical, self-releasing triangular knot. The tie was named by Americans in the 1920-30's after the Duke of Windsor. The Duke was known for his fondness of large triangular tie knots, but didn't in fact invent this particular knot. His secret was a specially tailored tie with an extra thickness of material.
There are four tie-versions that result in the "Windsor" knot; two self releasing, and two non-self releasing. This version filmed here is considered as the original (self releasing) version.
The video is to be viewed as if you were looking in a mirror.
Quoted from http://www.2tieatie.com
The Duke of Windsor, formerly King Edward VIII of Britain - who chose love over power - abdicated the throne only to become such a style icon that he has a popular necktie knot named after him.
The Windsor knot is wide and triangular, designed for wide spread shirt collars. It is not a good knot to use with ties of thick material, but, when well executed, is stately and elegant.
