Style Tip: Perfect Skinny Knot
HISTORY OF THE FOUR-IN-HAND KNOT:
Some say that carriage riders tied their reins with a four-in-hand knot while others say that members of the Four-in-Hand Club in London began to wear the neckwear making it fashionable. I believe both were invovled in this conception.

WHY IS IT PERFECT FOR SKINNY TIES:
It's a simple knot requires less fabric then larger knots like a full-windsor making it less bulky and proportionate to it's 2.5" width. There are 85 various knots I've tied and worn them all and yes there are some cool options but this is always my go to. Good news it's also the easiest to tie

HUGH'S NOTES:
Don't pull the knot too tight this is a common flaw I see all the time.  When you have a fine piece of neckwear you don't want the fabric constricted you want it to be nice and snug so the knot isn't pulling the fabric. The middle dimple is not for skinny ties leave that for the wide ties the reason for the dimple is to minimize the large fabric of the wide tie.
