How to make an Ascot Knot

How to make an Ascot Knot

The Plastron, a French word used to indicate the Medieval knights chest, or Ascot, is a kind of tie that we usually save for very formal occasions; it matches with a morning suit.

Curiosity: in the equestrian field, particularly in the dressage, the plastron is an important accessory of the horsewoman outfit, whereas the men usually wear a white tie; in the hunting the plastron is recommended for both.

The ascot tie was born as hunting scarf: a fabric tape, tied around the neck that could be useful in case of emergency to aid knights and horses, to stop the bleeding or to immobilize broken limbs.

Although it has become regulatory in the early XX century, its origin dates back to the 80’s of the XIX century, in the upper middle class and nobility houses. It was usually worn for big occasions, high-society dinners and during the promenades through the elegant districts. Here are the different ways to knot the ASCOT.

The single ascot knot is quite simple to make:

  1. Put the ascot around your neck;
  2. Put the ascot tip through the ring;
  3. Take the tip towards the neck, passing below the ascot;
  4. Let the tip fall onwards and fix it until you obtain the shape you wish. The ascot is usually worn underneath the shirt collar. The first shirt button (at least) is traditionally left open.

  3. Complete the rotation and take the two parts towards the neck;
  4. Pass below the ascot;
  5. Let the tip fall onwards and fix until you obtain the shape you wish. The ascot is usually worn underneath the shirt collar. The first shirt button (at least) is traditionally left open.
