                                                By Hendrik Pohl



  There are many different ways to tie your neck tie, but one of the most commonly used necktie knots
which is both easy to learn and stylish looking, is the so-called Four in Hand Necktie knot. The Four in
Hand knot is a slightly smaller, and somewhat asymmetrical tie knot. Even though this type of necktie
knot is one of the easiest ways o tie a necktie, hence it is sometimes called the “simple tie knot”, it is by
no means an un-fashionable way to tie your tie. It is actually the preferred, and best looking tie knot if
you wear a dress shirt with a narrow collar spread. The traditional look of the FIH knot also
compliments British striped neckties exceptionally well.

The Story Behind The Four in Hand Knot

 The Four in Hand is one of the original necktie knots dating back to the middle of the 19th century. It is
one of the oldest tie knots that is still in common use today. It was invented by British horsemen that
needed a simple way to tie a scarf with one hand while holding the reigns of four horses in the other
hand. Hence, the knot got the name Four-in-Hand.

How to Tie a Four-in-Hand Knot:

 1. Flip up your shirt’s collar and close the top button. Then, lay the tie around your neck so that the
broad side of the necktie hangs lower than the narrow end.

 2. Wrap the broad end of the necktie behind, and around the narrow end of the tie with one hand,
while holding the wrapping in place with your other hand. This will ensure that the unfinished tie knot
doesn’t slip out of place.

 3. Wrap the broad end around, and over the front of the narrow end. As before, hold the unfinished tie
knot with two fingers. Then, take the broad end, and loop it through the loop on your neck. Make sure
to leave a loop at the front of your tie. This is needed in the next step to pull the broad end through,
and to tighten the knot.

4. Pull the broad end of the necktie through the loop you created in step #3.

 5. Carefully tighten the necktie and adjust it so that it is centered between your collar. Finally flip down
your shirt’s collars.

Tying your necktie to the Right Length:

 The tip of the necktie should end near the center of your belt buckle. If the tie is tied too short or too
long, un-tie the knot and do it again. Sooner or later, you will get a feel for where you need to start the
knot. Use the stitching at the back of the tie of the narrow part as a reference point. If you just can’t get
the tie tied to the right length, chances are that you might need extra long neckties that are especially
made for taller men. Regular sized neckties are typically 58” inches in length and a good fit for men up
to 6’3”. Extra long ties are 3-4 inches longer, and recommended for men taller than 6 foot 3 inches, or
for men that have a larger neck size. Buying extra long ties in conventional brick and mortar stroes
might be somewhat challenging. Only few retailers carry them, and in most cases only offer a very
limited selection. Buying extra long ties at specialized online retailers might be a better, and more
convenient alternative.

How to Create a Dimpled Necktie Knot

 Recently experts speak of a “dimpled tie knot”. The dimple is a crevice on the top of the knot, which
gives the tie more structure and a more sophisticated look. To make a dimple in the tie knot, you will
need to pay a little more attention on the last step of the necktie knot. Before tightening the necktie, put
your finger on top of the tie, and slide it carefully inside the tie knot. With your finger create a crevice.
Keep your finger on top of the tie until the tie knots gets tighter. At the same time as you tighten the
necktie knot, carefully pull our your finger. As a final step, give the tie knot a little squeeze from the
sides and tighten the knot one more time. The dimpled tie knot looks best with solid color ties made
from a shiny silk fabric.

 How to tie a shawl into a scarf can be answered in various ways. A basic way would be the
Poncho-style tie. The first step would be to fold the shawl into a triangle. Then wrap the scarf around
your neck and tie it loosely in front. To avoid the scarf from untying itself, you can tie up the loose ends
with a brooch.

2. Another way to tie a shawl

 ...into a scarf would be to fold it like a rectangle, the long way, placing the middle of the scarf at the
front of your neck and let the ends hang loose over your shoulder. Or if you prefer another you style do
the same fold but instead of letting ends hang loose, wrap them around your neck and tie them in the
front.

 3. To achieve a collar-like effect when you’re wearing a jacket or a sweater you can use a shawl that
isn’t to bulky or long and tie the scarf around your neck and tuck the ends into the jacket/sweater.

 For a well-known look in Europe called the Ascot-style tie, fold the scarf in half the long way. Tie the
scarf around your neck with the folded side on one side while the loose ends on the other end. Slide
the loose ends through the loop and front then let the ends hang loose.

 4. For the Upscale Tie, drape the shawl over your shoulder. The upper back and shoulders should be
fully covered. Wrap the shawl ends around your upper arms. Then to get that elegant look that will
keep you warm, bring the shawl ends behind your back and knot them loosely.

 These are just some of the tips on how to tie a shawl. Do not feel obliged to follow these rules after all
