Mastering the Art: Wearing a Tie

Anyone and everyone can wear a tie - it's that simple. But, ask yourself a question: Are you wearing it properly?

It might sound a little obsessive, but if you're wearing and knotting your tie correctly it can really make a difference.

To make this easier to understand, I'll explain with three points: 1. The knot, 2. the fit and 3. the dimple.

Point 1.

Simply put: Get to know your knots. Different knots look better with different shirts. For example, the Full Windsor tends to work better with a spread collar shirt, whilst the Four-In-Hand generally goes well with all types.

Point 2.

The fit of your tie is extremely important. When I say 'the fit', I basically mean how close the tie is to the top of your shirt. A good fit will be nice and tight with no gaps, whereas a bad fit will be loose and your top button will be visible.

Point 3.

Finally, the 'dimple'. This is what will set you apart from other tie wearers. To see what I mean, just look at all four pictures above. To see how to achieve the dimple, check out this article by Mr Porter.

And there you go, it really is as simple as 1, 2, 3...
