4 Ways To Knot a Neck Tie For Beginners

Ties can be terrifying for most men. Even if you went to a private school and wore a uniform every day of your adolescent life, you still probably don’t know how to wear a tie. And if you’re like many people, it’s better late than never when it comes to learning how to tie a tie properly — eventually you may have to wear one at some point of time. So, here in one of my first how-to videos, I’ll be showing you 4 basic ways to knot a necktie that every man should know.


WINSDOR KNOT

A fabulous necktie knot that is ideal for business scenarios. The Windsor Knot is a thick, wide and triangular tie knot that projects confidence. It is especially suited for the spread or cutaway collar.

HALF WINSDOR KNOT

This is an easier version of the Full Windsor Knot. When tied correctly, it produces a neat symmetrical triangular knot that you can use with any dress shirt. It’s extremely versatile: appropriate for work or play.

FOUR IN HAND KNOT

This is an easy to tie, slender, tapered, asymmetrical, self-releasing knot. It’s best suited for the standard button-down dress shirt and works best with wide neckties made from heavy fabrics. Use for semi-formal events, when you want to be discreet.

PRATT KNOT

The Pratt Knot is versatile, elegant, and of a medium size. It’s indeed well suited for any dress shirt and somewhat wider neckties made from light to medium fabrics. You can’t go wrong with this elegant knot for formal meetings, as it looks very neat.
