How to Tie a Four in Hand Knot
The Four in Hand Knot is one of the most popular tie knots today as it is one the easiest to learn and tie. The knot is slightly less formal, slim, slightly asymmetrical, and pairs well with a semi-spread collar dress shirt. However, it is up to you to decide the look you prefer as what you feel confident wearing is the most important factor when deciding on which knot to choose. Personally, this is the knot I use the most often as I feel it has a modern look and when paired with a dimple it oozes sophistication.
First flip up your collar and follow the steps below:
To start, place the tie around your neck with the wide side (blade) of the tie on the left side of your body and the narrow side (tail) on your right.
Cross the wide end of the tie over the tail to form an “X”.
Wrap the wide end under the tail toward your left.
Then wrap the wide end around the front of the tail and to the right.
You can wrap the tie around a second time if you want a thicker knot.
Then take the wide end up and through the neck loop while using one or two fingers to keep the front of the knot open for the next step.
Take the wide end and pull it through the open loop in the front.
To finish, tighten your knot by pulling down on the wide end to your preferred knot tightness and then pull the knot up to your neck while holding the tail.
