Similar to The Oriental Knot, The Four-in-Hand knot provides a sharp look, with less difficulty, and produces a straight and narrow tie. Designed for a standard shirt collars, it is a relatively simple knot to tie and works for just about any occasion.
Drape the tie over your neck, with the wide end of the tie on your right. The wide end should hang about a foot or so lower than the narrow end.
Cross the wide end over the narrow end, and back underneath.
Continue passing the wide end around the front of the narrow end.
Pull the wide end up and through the loop around your neck.
With the front of the knot still loose, take your index finger and hold the knot open as you pull the wide end over the loop and through the front of the knot.
Remove your index finger and tighten the knot carefully, leaving a dimple in the place where you held the knot open.
Draw the knot tight to your collar by holding the narrow end and sliding the knot upward until it is tight.
