Which knot for skinny tie?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I usually tie half-Windsor knots for all my ties but with a skinny tie, I am having difficulty making the knot cover itself (if that makes any sense). You know when you wrap the tie around itself then pull it through the loop? Well since it's skinny, what ends up happening is the visible part starts sliding down. Any amount of tightening does not really help.

I am thinking this is because I am choosing the wrong type of knot. Any suggestions?

I like four-in-hand with skinny ties.

The small knot works also. You can see diagrams of it on the Brooks Bros site.

It is incredibly difficult to find different ways to tie a tie other than the basics, let alone ones with actual pictures.

I think the most suited knot would be a small knot

The thinner the blade, the smaller the knot needs to be to balance it. Four in hand should work fine.
