The Four in Hand knot is recommended for shorter men. It's a small knot with a distinctive, elongated asymmetric shape - which directs the eye vertically up the body - giving the impression of height. The Four in Hand was also a favourite of James Bond.
|The Four-in-Hand knot|
The four-in-hand knot is tied by placing the tie around the neck and crossing the broad end of the tie in front of the narrow end. The broad end is folded behind the narrow end and brought forward on the opposite side, passed across the front horizontally, folded behind the narrow end again, brought over the top of the knot from behind, tucked behind the horizontal pass, and the knot pulled snug. The knot is slid up the narrow end of the tie until snug against the collar.
