How to Tie a Tie

One of the basic things a man MUST know (besides how to iron a shirt) is how to tie a tie. Ties are starting to be worn more and more. Casual outfits adopt them at a larger scale.
If you’re among those who keep their knot undone when they take their tie off, i suggest you take a look at the clips below.

The most popular node is definitely the Four in Hand. Reason? It’s the easiest one plus, it works great for both formal and casual ties. The instructions are simple:

A similar node to the four in hand is the Half Windsor knot. It’s very similar to the way you make it. Just like the previous one, this node is asymmetrical.

Let’s get to one of the classics: the Windsor Knot. It’s a double know, symmetrical, taht goes well with open collar shirts because it’s very wide. The downside is that it makes the neck look thicker. Let’s check the Windsor knot instructions.

The last know I want you to try is the Prince Albert Knot. It pretty narrow and, for this reason, it goes well with narrow collar shirts. Check it out:

Be careful when you make any of the above knots. Ties, especially silk ones, are very sensitive if you pull them too firmly. The same advice goes for when you take the tie off: open the knot gently.

If you’re serious about style (and you should be, since you’re reading my blog), you should be wearing ties a lot. They work with shirts, polo shirts, jeans, chinos, even sneakers. Just make sure you match them to the rest of your outfit.
