Today , we're gonna learn how to tie a foreign hand necktie knot .
One of the most common neck tie knots out there .
I personally learned how to tie this necktie knot .
When I was 15 years old , the main characteristics of the foreign hand are one relative to other tie knots .
It's small and asymmetrical two .
This imbalance makes it slightly less formal than asymmetric knot and three , it works best with point callers .
Now let's get to the step by step .
Instructions start by draping the tie over your neck , adjusting it until the wide end hangs longer than the narrow end .
The exact length will vary by person and neck tie length , cross the wide end of the tie over the narrow end and then bring it behind the narrow end , wrap it across the front .
Again , this time , we're going to take the wide end and bring it up through the opening near your neck .
Now , pull the wide end through the loop in the front to tighten the knot .
Pull on the wide end while holding the knot until you are satisfied with the look , bring the knot up to your neck by holding the narrow end while pushing the knot up with your other hand , keep your tie , look inside it by putting the narrow end through the keeper loop on the back of the tie .
When finished your tie end should rest between the top and middle portion of your belt line .
If it's too short or too long by more than half an inch , I recommend you try again if it was too short at the start , raise the narrow end to make it just a bit higher .
If it was too long , make the narrow end just a bit lower when you get started .
That's it , gentlemen .
The four in hand is a great tie knot that every man should have in his arsenal .
