Look at the 4 pictures above. Can you find the difference between Four in Hand Knot, Windsor Knot, Half Windsor Knot, and Pratt Knot ? From a distance, they all look the same. In fact only when you look very carefully, you can find the type of knot. And remember….most of us use necktie almost daily. Let me ask you….do you know How to tie a tie?
Maybe you are looking to find new ways to tie a tie. Or maybe you do not like the way your tie knot feels and you want to give a shot at some other knot. Or..you are like me…someone who does not know how to tie a tie and is still writing article after article on this topic. Just kidding….. There was a time when I used to wonder about how to tie a tie. Several times in my childhood I asked my friends to help me tie the tie. And ofcourse…most of them were just like me I wish there was a site like this at that time….O well…those were the good days…even without internet
There are several methods to tie a tie. Some people say that there might be 15+ ways to tie a tie. I am a big fan of 80-20 rule. What it means is that 80% of people tie their ties using only 20% of the total tie-knot types. So, if we assume that there are 15-20 different types of knots, then 20% of 15-20 = 3 or 4. In this site, we will explore all types of knots, but will put special focus on the top 4 tie knots.
Here is the list of knots:
I will update this page with a list of all 15-20 tie knots.
