The Four-in-Hand Knot – For a standard button-down dress shirt

  1. The wide end should extend about 30 cms below narrow end. Cross wide end over narrow end.
  2. Turn wide end back underneath narrow end.
  3. Continue by bringing wide end back over in front of narrow end again.
  4. Pull wide end up and through the loop around your neck.
  5. Hold the front of the knot loosely with your index finger and bring wide end down through front loop.
  6. Remove finger and tighten knot carefully to collar by holding narrow end and sliding the knot up.
  7. Tip: For the ‘dimple’ in the knot – after you’ve tied your knot but before you tighten it up to your throat, pinch the spot directly underneath the knot. Keep pinching lightly as you tighten the knot.
