These are the three most commonly used necktie knots: the Windsor, the half Windsor and the four-in-hand knot.
The Windsor knots are perfectly symmetrical. This knot gives a sense of nobility by looking elegant and sits well on wide collared shirts. Suitable for all business and formal occasions.
Four-in-hand: or more commonly known as the ‘Euro’ or the ‘school-boy’ knot is by far the easiest knot to learn and the most commonly used. Like the half-Windsor, it is asymmetric and is a slim knot so will suit a narrow shirt collar.
