For beginners in tying a necktie, there are four different ways on how you can tie your necktie. One of the most widely used knots is the four-in-hand knot. This kind of knot is smaller and more asymmetrical than other types of knots. The four-in-hand knot is the simplest knot that beginners can use for their necktie. But, this kind of knot is a very unfashionable way of tying a knot. Actually, it is just perfect if you:
• Wear a plain t-shirt with narrow collar spread.
• If you are tall individuals and you need a small tie knot that uses less length of the tie to make it look longer for you.
• It is also a great knot for solid color ties made of silk.
• It is a traditional tie that can complement British striped ties.
The four-in-hand knot has been used way back in the middle of the 19th century. It is the oldest knot that is still being used by many people nowadays. This kind of knot was invented by a British man who wanted a simple knot for his scarf. Here is how you can do a simple four-in-hand knot for beginners like you.
1. First, you have to flip the collar of your shirt and lock the top button. Lay the necktie around your neck. Make sure that the broader end of the necktie is lower than the narrower end.
2. The next thing you have to do is to wrap the broader end of the necktie over the narrow end. Hold the wrapping in place by using your other hand to ensure that the unfinished tie will not slip off.
3. Take the broad end and loop it inside the loop on your neck. Ensure that there is a loop at the front of your tie. This loop is important for the next step. This will let you pull the broad end so that you can tighten the knot.
4. You have to pull the broad end through the loop you have created in step three.
5. Tighten the necktie and make sure that the necktie is at the center of the collar. For the finishing touch, flip down the collar of your shirt.
