Edward VIII had a highly respected reputation as a leader of fashion. As a result, it was assumed he invented the world-famous Windsor knot after he abdicated in 1936 and became Duke of Windsor.

George was photographed in the 1920s wearing a tie knotted in what appeared to be the never-before-seen Windsor knot.
