How to Tie a Four-In-Hand Knot

Learn how to tie a four-in-hand knot from Louis Purple menswear boutiques founder Charles Brunold in this Howcast video.


Hello I'm Charles from Louis Purple New York and I'm here to teach you how to do a four-in-hand knot today. So it's a pretty discreet and asymmetrical knot that works very well on button-down collars and it's really a good knot to tie with a thicker and heavier fabric for the tie. So, this is how you proceed. You want to start with the wide end about twelve inches below the narrow end, even though it might depend on the length of tie you're using. And this is how you proceed.

You take the wide end, which should be on you're right hand side and you bring it over to the front. Bring the wide end underneath the front, and then you do a full turn, you go over this time and just pull throughout the loop, pull it up, and bring it down through the loop. Like I said, it's slightly asymmetrical so it's okay if it doesn't look perfect. And there you go, you have your four-in-hand knot.
