THE NLY MAN GUIDE

Three ways to
tie a tie

Illustrations by Jonna Fransson

Does a Half-Windsor knot work best and how does one tie a Four-in-Hand anyway? This is NLY MAN's guide to the most common tie knots.

THE NLY MAN GUIDE

FOUR-IN-HAND KNOT

This is the most common knot one tends to be taught first – the Four-in-Hand knot. And if you're intent on mastering just one knot, this is the one for you. It has a characteristic appearance everyone should recognize immediately; that asymmetric, medium-sized knot. It's even pretty easy to tie! The Four-in-Hand knot is best matched with button-down collar shirts, but it even goes great with the more traditional and more formal cut-away collar. Just try to choose a tie in a somewhat thick material; like knitting or wool.

THE NLY MAN GUIDE

THE WINDSOR KNOT

Where the Windsor differs from the Four-in-Hand knot's asymmetric shape is in that the full Windsor knot is cleaner and has a wider, triangular, even symmetric form. A tie with this knot is best suited for a shirt collar with a somewhat wider gap between the folded collar leafs; for example, shirts with cut-away collars or a fullspread collar.

THE NLY MAN GUIDE

THE HALF WINDSOR KNOT

As the name suggests, the Half Windsor knot is smaller than it's full-on predecessor and tends to be the second knot learned by tie wearers. Being more casual/everyday-friendly in appearance, it is naturally more asymmetric and ideal for shirts with both wide and thin gaps between the folded collar leafs – meaning it looks great with most shirt styles.
