CAPE KNOT video - I am very fond of this knot, it never ceases to get compliments. Especially from the ladies. They love a man who knows how to tie a knot. This knot works best with mono-colored ties, works fine with pattern or paisley ties, but I would not recommend it with stripes. It has the same issue the Eldredge does, the orientation of the stripes gets all zany and it creates pattern shock.
