The 4-in-hand knot is the most common necktie knot used by the average man. And it’s a great starter knot if you’re just learning to tie a tie. Compared to other knots like the Double Windsor or Half Windsor, the 4-in-Hand Knot is a smaller, more asymmetrical knot.
In this video, I show you the simple steps for how to tie the 4-in-Hand Knot.
Once you get the hang of it, you might feel the urge to dress things up more often. Go with it! You might be worried that your friends will laugh if you come around suddenly wearing a tie: chances are, they’ll just be jealous.
Dressing up your outfit with a tie is a great way to look a bit older and more mature—whether you’re at a job interview, a special occasion, church, or even just hanging out with your family for the holidays.
Real men wear ties!
