Hi , I'm Jennifer Morris for Howdini .
And , um , here's a skill , I'm sure a lot of you wish you had , which is how to tie a tie .
I have no idea how to do that .
But luckily today we have with us Brett Ren , who is the style correspondent for GQ magazine and he's going to teach us how to tie a tie .
Now , there are a couple of different kinds of ties .
Yes , there are over a dozen different ways to tie a tie knot .
Um , but I'm gonna show you one of the most popular , which is called the four in hand .
And it's used quite frequently because it's a , a moderately sized tie knot and it's also quite easy to tie .
And that's sort of the traditional knot that we're used to seeing it called the Foreign Hand .
So let's go to it .
What do you do first ?
Well , the first place to start is to just get drape the tie around your neck and then you want to get the right size so that the wider end is about halfway further past the narrow end .
So that's the place to start .
You wanna have like a mini tie .
You wanna have a little mini tie .
And , uh , you might have to try it a few different times because different ties have different lengths .
So you're never gonna get it on the first try .
Normally the first step in tying a foreign hand knot is simply to put the tie around your neck and to figure out the right length about halfway or possibly a little less for the narrow end compared to the longer end , you take the wide end of the tie .
And the first step is to bring it around like that , then you simply bring it towards the front , you wrap it around and now you can see that the forehand knot is starting to take shape .
The final step is to bring the wide end up through the loop created in your neck and put it right back down drum roll .
Drum roll .
There we go that you've created and you want to feed it through taking your time to make adjustments .
So you get the right tie and now holding on to the narrow end , the mini tie , you simply adjust , bring it right up and then I can come around her neck , fix the collar and you can help me since I don't have a mirror and it can be difficult without a mirror .
But that's how good you are .
You don't need a mirror .
There you go .
And that's the four in hand .
And now you at home know how to tie a four in hand knot .
Thank you , Brett Faln .
He again , he is the style correspondent for GQ magazine and I'm Jennifer Morris for howdini .
