While I use this blog as a platform to provide suggestions for men’s formalwear clothing, I do not believe that fashion sources should provide a strict blueprint for how men should dress.
Rather, ‘codes of conduct’ when it comes to dressing can be meshed with our own vision – ultimately, this is what fashion should be about! With that being said, however, below are the three most widely used tie knots men donning suits have come to embrace since the dawn of the necktie.
Four In Hand
The Four in Hand Knot is also known as the ‘simple knot’ or ‘schoolboy knot’ due to its simplicity and style. History suggests that the Four in Hand Knot came to be known as such as a result of members of the Four-In-Hand club in London starting to regularly pull this one off, hence making it fashionable.
The knot produced by this method is on the narrow side, slightly asymmetric and appropriate for most but not all occasions. From an aesthetic standpoint, the knot should be worn with narrower spread collars, due to the narrow nature of the tie knot itself, and also lends well to men with shorter necks, as it serves to elongate the perceived length of one’s neck.
