nusos de corbata 

Altres

Hi ha molts tipus de nusos de corbata. Entre aquests nusos hi ha els quatre tipus esmentats aquí sota en la forma anglesa:
 
four-in-hand knot o simple knot o schoolboy knot
Wikipedia: The four-in-hand knot is a method of tying a necktie. Also known as a simple knot or schoolboy knot, the four-in-hand is believed to be the most popular method of tying ties due to its simplicity. Some reports state that carriage drivers tied their reins with a four-in-hand knot, while others claim that the carriage drivers wore their scarves in the manner of a four-in-hand, but the most likely etymology is that members of the Four-in-Hand Club in London began to wear the neckwear, making it fashionable. The knot produced by this method is on the narrow side, slightly asymmetric, and appropriate for all occasions. 
 
Webster: 
 
four-in-hand
  1. A team of four horses controlled by one driver.
  2. A vehicle drawn by four horses.
  3. A necktie tied in a slipknot with long ends left hanging one in front of the other.
Windsor knot o full Windsor o double Windsor
Wikipedia: The Windsor knot, also sometimes referred to as a Full Windsor or a Double Windsor to distinguish it from the half-Windsor, is a method of tying a necktie around one’s neck and collar. The Windsor knot, compared to other methods, produces a wide symmetrical triangular knot. The knot is often thought to be named after the Duke of Windsor (King Edward VIII before his abdication). It is, however, named after his grandfather Edward VII.
half-Windsor knot
Wikipedia: The Windsor knot, also sometimes referred to as a Full Windsor or a Double Windsor to distinguish it from the half-Windsor, is a method of tying a necktie around one’s neck and collar. The Windsor knot, compared to other methods, produces a wide symmetrical triangular knot. The knot is often thought to be named after the Duke of Windsor (King Edward VIII before his abdication). It is, however, named after his grandfather Edward VII.
 
Victoria knot
 No en trobem informació etimològica. Suposem que Victòria és un nom propi i, per tant, cal escriure’l en majúscula.
Pel que fa a les denominacions catalanes, recomanem les formes següents, corresponents a les formes angleses esmentades:
 
nus senzill
Trobem aquesta forma recollida a Els nusos més utilitzats. També per al castellà trobem la forma nudo simple documentada a diferents fonts, com ara Nudo de corbata i Cómo hacer nudos. Aquesta forma permet evitar el manlleu four in hand.
 
nus Windsor
Trobem aquest terme documentat en català a Els nusos més utilitzats i Nudos.org. Tal com hem pogut veure en la forma anglesa, el nom procedeix de l’antropònim Windsor.
 
nus semi-Windsor
No trobem aquesta forma documentada en català, però sí que la trobem en castellà, juntament amb altres formes lingüísticament menys recomanables (com ara medio Windsor). Es tracta d’un nus més petit que el Windsor.
 
nus Victòria
No en trobem informació etimològica. Suposem que Victòria és un nom propi i, per tant, el mantenim amb majúscula inicial.
