    Are you referring to the dimple or the knot?

    Looks like a nice tight four-in-hand knot with a carefully place dimple -- my favorite knot.

    No. What type of knot do you usually tie?

    You can find an illustration of a FIH online if you don't know how to tie it.

    How old are you?

    What makes you think somebody can explain a four-in-hand knot, in WORDS no less, if you can't even follow some simple diagram?

    Go to a mens wear shop and beg for help.

    From tie-a-tie.net: To tie the Four in Hand Knot, select a tie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below: 1) The wide end "W" should extend about 12 inches below the narrow end "N". Cross the wide end "W" over the narrow end "N". 2) Turn the wide end "W" back underneath the narrow end "N". 3) Continue by bringing the wide end "W" back over in front of the narrow end "N" again. 4) Pull the wide end "W" up and through the loop around your neck. 5) Hold the front of the knot loosely with your index finger and bring the wide end "W" down through the front knot. 6) Remove your finger and tighten the knot carefully to the collar by holding the narrow end "N" and sliding the knot up. That should answer all of your questions. End of thread. [​IMG]

    +1. The FIH is one of the easiest knots to tie - just go to YouTube, and find a video that you find suitably instructive and follow through.

    Play, pause and practice often, and you'll eventually get it.
