Every man should have this skill in his pocket. Knowing how to tie a tie can come in handy during business meetings and formal events. Not to mention impressing people with incredible style and finesse.
So without further ado, let's start with the basics. The four in hand knot is the most popular and easiest knot to master. Start by looping the tie around your neck and flip it so the wide end is on the right and the thin end is on the left.
Cross the wide side over the narrow side and bring it back from left to right and then back to the front again. Now pass the wide end under the narrow side, loop it halfway around the narrow side and thread it back up through the neck loop.
Now with the wide part of the tie already through the neck loop, take the wide end and bring it down towards the middle of the narrow end.
Hold both sides of the tie in one hand and press down to create a dimple in the middle. Loop the wide end back around the narrow end in the same direction and bring it forward again. Now insert the end of the wide part of the tie into the loop behind the narrow part and tighten the knot.
To complete the knot, pass the wide end behind the knot, making sure the tie is even on both sides. Then, to finish, slide the wide end into the small loop around the narrow end and pull up firmly to secure the tie for good.
That's it! Now you can officially master the art of wearing a tie for any occasion.
