The simple, overhand necktie knot is a revolution in neckwear ~ A theory of how to tie a necktie never seen before! It is truly the simplest necktie knot you will ever tie . The simple overhand necktie knot is symmetrical and smaller than a half-windsor with the slender of a four-in-hand. Hope you enjoy this beauty! Please checkout the video and pictures attached. It is truly a hybrid necktie.

grn3 and red2 look as crooked as a four in hand, otherwise, neat idea.

What's the, uh, difference between this and other knots?

Actually, I watched your video, and I'm pretty sure that what you've done is a four-in-hand knot, just in an odd way where you feed the little end through after you've made the knot. edit: man, I was so close to being the first to notice this.

The tighter you cinch the overhand knot the more triangle it becomes, the tighter you cinch the four-in-hand the smaller is becomes but the shape doesnt change.
