How to tie your necktie
The “four in hand” knot is the classic tie knot, widely used for its easy way to tie and works best with most shirt collars. If your height is medium, work very well for standard length ties (145 cm.)
The Double knot is very similar to “four in hand” knot. Just add one more layer passing twice the wide end of the tie over the narrow end of the tie. Works great with all kinds of shirt collars and is perfect for any tie except for thick fabric ties.
The Windsor knot is an english knot for special occasions. It is more complicated to tie because it should fit exactly between the two ends of the neck, completely hiding the top button of your shirt. Being a rather large knot, it is preferable to limit its use for spaced shirt collars.
The “Half-Windsor knot” is similar to “Windsor knot” but slightly less bulky and easier to tie. It is ideal for lightweight or medium-weight fabric ties. This stylish triangular knot works perfect with classic neck shirts or open neck.
