The simple knot, also known as four-in-hand

The half-Windsor knot

The four-in-hand knot is a method of tying a necktie. Also known as a simple knot or schoolboy knot, the four-in-hand is believed to be the most popular method of tying ties due to its simplicity and style. Some reports state that carriage drivers tied their reins with a four-in-hand knot. The knot produced by this method is on the narrow side, slightly asymmetric, and appropriate for most, but not all occasions.


The half-Windsor knot produces a neat, triangular knot. It is larger than the four-in-hand knot, but smaller than the Windsor knot. The half-Windsor is derived from the Windsor in that it is only brought up around the loop on one side rather than both. It works well with light and medium weight fabrics. ©
