How to tie a tie: The four-in-hand

3 min read

Slightly asymmetrical and creating a smaller knot than the full or half Windsor, the four-in-hand is the go-to knot for the sophisticated modern man.

It’s said that the name comes from the knot that carriage drivers used to tie the reins on their four horse carriages, hence; the four-in-hand. Supposedly, the name was later used for a gentleman’s club in London whose members wore this knot and subsequently set the trend for the four-in-hand becoming one of the most versatile and widely used knots in the western world.

In this guide, I show you how to tie the four-in-hand, giving some key details on the most important element; how to finish the knot creating an elegant dimple and a proud tie.
