Tie a Four in Hand Knot in (6) Steps

Standard yet Stylish.

By Janine Giorgenti

The Four in Hand Knot is a style that every professional should be well versed in. The good news is that it’s simple to learn!

The Four in Hand Knot style allows for a subtle and more narrow look, which is best served for ‘wider’ neckties (using heavier fabrics) and ‘standard’ button-down dress shirts.

While the Four in Hand Knot might not be the go-to look for formal occasions, it is a well received look in the business world; and goes really well with narrow or rounded collars.

Furthermore, if you have a shorter neck, the Four in Hand Knot is perfect for you, as the narrow (and elongated) shape of the resulting knot accentuates the neck’s height.

Here’s how to tie a Four in Hand Knot in (6) steps:

1) Start with the wide end of your tie (on the right), extending about 11-12 inches below the narrow end on the left, and then cross the wide end over the narrow end.

2) Curl the wide end back under the narrow end.

3) Proceed by bringing the wide end back over in front of the narrow end.

4) Secure the wide end up and through the loop around your neck.

5) Pinch the front of your knot loosely with your index finger and bring the wide end down through the front loop.

6) Finally, remove your finger and fasten the knot to the collar by holding the narrow end and sliding the knot up.
