HOW TO TIE A TIE
For a large number of men it is a daily ritual, for others a constant headache. Whether you love or hate it, tying a neck tie is an important rite of passage for any male. A great looking tie can add an undeniably distinguished, refined look to any outfit. So if you are one of the thousands of men who were never correctly taught how to tie their neck tie, here’s a quick refresher guide for two of our favourite knots.
The Four in Hand
The four-in-hand knot is perhaps the most popular of neck tie knots. Suitable for almost any occasion and widely considered the easiest knot to master.
1. Wrap the tie around your neck with the wide end extending below the narrow end. Place the wide part of the tie over the narrow part.
2. Take the wide end and turn it underneath the narrow end.
3. Bring the wide end around in front of the narrow end again.
4. Pull the wider end through the back of the loop you created and while carefully holding the front of the tie with your index finger, take the wide end and bring it down through the front knot.
The Half Windsor
The half-Windsor creates a triangle knot and is best suited for lightweight shirts.
1. With the tie around your neck, make sure the wider end is sitting below the narrow end then cross the wide end over the narrow end.
2. Bring the wider end around and behind the more narrow end.
3. Take the wide end and bring it up and through the gap beneath your collar.
4. Make sure the wide end comes around the front and over the narrow end moving from right to left.
5. Lift the wider end back up through the loop and pull it down through the knot created.
