Welcome to the Gentleman's Gazette. In this video, I'm going to show you how to tie a

four in hand knot.

The Four in hand knot today is probably the most popular knot in the western world. It's

the first knot most boys learn from their fathers when they first learn how to tie a

tie and at the same time, a popular knot with elegant men because it is slightly asymmetrical

from. Some claim that it comes from the four in hand club in London. Another theory is

that it comes from the coach when coach would hold four in one hand. other people claim

that, the coach would tie their scarves in that way, it's ultimately not clear where

it originates from however it does not matter because it's a great knot. Just like with

the oriental knot, the four in hand knot is perfect for wear with collar pins, collar

bars or collar clips simply because you can put them underneath here and the knot is not

too big so you can actually connect the two parts of your collar. If you don't know what

a collar pin is, check out my video. If you like to find high quality collar pins and

The four in hand knot is very popular and I think it looks best with a classic collar

that is closer together or like a medium spread collar that i'm wearing right here. once you

get to more spread collars you have to be careful because the knot is not too large

and so you will see the tie on the sides which I don't think looks great. Some people don't

care so I leave it up to you but I think it's best to wear it with a classic collar and

medium spread collar. Once you tie the tie knot, you ideally want both ends of the tie
