Hi , I'm Dee Fragment and I'm gonna show you an awesome knot called the Pratt knot .
Now a little personal disclaimer up front , I love this knot and in a few moments , you're gonna see why it was made famous by Don Shelby , the American news anchor , but it was actually created by a guy called Jerry Pratt .
So let's get into it .
Start with your tie turned inside out .
You want the sea to be facing outwards for most people , your starting position should look like this .
If you've got a neck like Dwayne Johnson , then you might need to experiment a little , take both ends and cross them over the thin end goes on top .
Now take the wide end and thread it down through this gap in front of your collar button .
Grab it from underneath and bring it all the way down next .
Take the wide end and bring it across the front horizontally , swap hands .
Now take your forefinger and put it underneath like this .
This will help make the finishing knot that little bit easier to do as you'll see in a few moments , take the white end and thread it around the back and underneath , bring it up through the gap in front of your collar button and thread it all the way through .
So as you can see , your forefinger has created a loop .
What you need to do is take the wide end and thread it down through that loop , hold the narrow end and slide the knot up , adjusting it as you go .
And what you end up with is a nice crisp symmetrical knot .
One of the sharpest looking knots around .
If you want to turn heads and stand out from the crowd , you're gonna wanna check out this tie night right here .
