inverse in time

Vincent Kartheiser as Philippe Weis in 'In Time' (Niccol 2011)
Due to public demand I created the category sartorial and the tag dandyism. For starters I hauled over five according entries from ye ole xirdalium. In detail and with background information, pictures, sequences, diagrams, and movies you now can read the, more or less, full story of the inverse tie knots (in chronological order): merovingian ties, more merovingian ties, the eldredge, eldredge variant, and finally eldredge reloaded.
    This comes in time with In Time (Niccol 2011) still in the cinemas—at least over here in Europe. I thought I had spotted it while seeing the movie just recently. So I hunted for high resolution screenshots. Above is a detail of the best I could find so far. It shows the story’s time-loaning millionaire Philippe Weis (Vincent Kartheiser). Have a close look at his tie knot—looks unusal, doesn’t it? Seems like cyberpunkish villains like Weis and the Merovingian do share similar tastes in tie knots.

    By the way: did you find anything concerning the origin of Lambert Wilson´s tie knot in >>Matrix Reloaded<<? Are there any other inverted knots that appeared before Matrix came on the silverscreen?
