Your Go-To Knot for Weighty Winter Ties

A classic Windsor may be well-suited for the silken ties of summer, but big knots on thicker winter neckwear (we’re partial to this one from Apolis) can quickly become cumbersome. If you’re sporting ties made from flannel, wool, or other hefty fabrics, keep things slim and simple with a four-in-hand knot.

There now—isn’t this easy? A slimmer silhouette means fewer steps, so beginners will find a four-in-hand comes naturally in no time. Just be wary of undersized tie clips and oversized crew neck sweaters. For slight variations, The Half Windsor and The Pratt are equally stylish and almost as slender.
