Draft Day One: The Tie

For the 2009 baseball draft, day one, I went with a frog-themed Leonard tie, using a four-in-hand knot with an Aristotle Onassis finish.

2on Lo Ri Lo Ri Co T Ri Co   Onassis

Although this knot is technically no different from the four-in-hand (2) (the wide blade is simply thrown behind ond over the existing knot), it gives a dramatically different appearance. It was worn by the Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis and, according to The New York Times in 1989, it ‘still has a certain popularity along Seventh Avenue’ in New York City.

The suffix ‘on’ has been added to the knot number 2 to designate this Onassis variation. The Ri Co effect can in principle be applied to any knot, although the effect will be the same.
