This is a guide for both newbies just starting out with their first tie knot, as well as those more advanced students that would like to add some variety to their tie knots. All I ask of you is an open mind and a few minutes of your time to practice today. The choice is yours: There are four ways of tying a tie. 1. Four in Hand Knot Asymmetrical tie knot, good for button-down shirts. 2. Pratt Knot Tidy & fairly wide tie knot, suited for any dress shirt. 3. Half Windsor Knot Symmetrical tie knot, goes with any dress shirt. 4. Windsor Knot Wide & triangular tie knot, good for spread collar shirts.
