PostSubject: Learn How to Tie a Tie   Fri Feb 06, 2009 10:45 pm

Before beginning, it's important to note that there are several different types of knots. Knotting experts agree that each knot has its own merits, but the basic knot, also known as the four-in-hand knot, is considered the most popular. Other knots include the Pratt, Windsor, Half Windsor, Kelvin, Oriental and St. Andrew, just to name a few.

Four-in-Hand
Since it's the most common, let's start with the four-in-hand knot. Considered appropriate for any occasion thanks to its clean, simple look, the four-in-hand is best produced with a tie made from a heavy fabric. In simple terms, here is how to achieve this knot:
• Place the necktie around your collar. Bring the wider end about a foot below the slender end and cross it over.
• Wrap the wide end underneath and then back around the front of the slender end.
• Bring the wide end up and pull it through the back of the loop at the top.
• Hold the knot loosely and bring the wide end all the way down through the loop, pulling cleanly. Finish by centering the knot.

Prince Albert
On the opposite end of the spectrum is the Prince Albert knot. This knot is more compact and is best produced using a slender tie constructed of soft fabric.
• Drape the necktie around your collar. Wrap the wider end of the tie over the slender end, behind it, back over it again and then around the back once more.
• Pull the wide end behind the knot on top and through the loop.
• Follow by pulling the wide end over the tie's outer layer.

Small Knot
It goes without saying that the small knot is discreet. Ideal for ties made of thicker materials, this knot is relatively simple to learn. Its only "tricky" maneuver is in the first step, so cross that hurdle and you'll be well on your way to the perfect small knot!
• Place the necktie around your collar. Twist the wide end so that the seam of the tie shows (essentially, you're showing the back of the tie).
• Pull the slender end over this twisted wider end. Then pull the wide end over the slender end.
• Bring the wide end underneath the knot and pull it through to the front.
• Then pass the wide end beneath the tie's outer layer and pull through.
