How to knot your tie

The knot should fit proparly around the collar, but shouldn't be too tight. If the knot of your tie is flat, the knot is probably too large or too loose. Try it again!

Practice makes perfect! Clean hands and a mirror are also desirable. The wide tail of your tie should reach exactly to your waistband or belt when you're finished. The narrow part can just stay loose, unless you prefer to use the extra loop in the back (the passentino). 
Leaving it loose usually gives your look a more stylish and modern feel. Remember, the narrow part may never be longer than the wide part of your tie and it should never be tucked away in your shirt. 
Four in Hand

The four-in-hand knot is the easiest way to knot your tie. It gives your outfit a narrow, more discreet and slightly asymmetrical knot. A shirt with a semi-spread collar or a button-down shirt is usually preferred with this type of knot.

The four-in-hand knot can be created in five steps.

  1. Keep the tie in a position in which the wide section is about 30 centimeters below the narrow part.
  2. Fold the wide part over the narrow part of the tie. Pass the flap back through (image 1 & 2).
  3. Fold the wide part of the tie over the narrow part again (repeat image 2).
  4. Pull the wide part of the tie through the loop of the neck and pass it through the knot (image 3).
  5. Pull the knot firmly towards your neck, while holding the narrow part of your tie (image 4 & 5).
