The Essentials Of Knotting A Tie. How To Do it & What To Know

As a gentleman, wearing a tie comes as a requirement, if not regularly, then occasionally. For first timers, it may seem challenging knotting the tie. It actually isn’t, but there are a lot of things to consider like choosing how to match the knot with your facial proportion and matching the knot with the type of tie.

Here’s a simplification of the most popular kind of knot, the four in hand knot.

Now you know how to knot it.

 

Let’s look at when and how you should wear it.

Examine the collar

Are the points narrow or widespread? The four in hand works excellently with narrow spread collars. Button down collars also work well with it.

Facial proportions

Examine the proportions of your face. A gentleman with a wide face and neck combination should not choose to wear a small knot for the four in hand. A man with a narrow face or neck on the other hand will complement his proportions perfectly.

Style of the tie

The style of the tie should be considered. Club or stripes (Traditional patterns) may look best with this knotting style. Thinner ties in addition match perfectly with the four in hand knot. Thicker ties on the other hand look better with a wide triangular knot.

 

So there you have it!! For the mandem. Let’s get styled!!!
