Need a powerful tie knot for your next job interview? Have a presentation and you need a strong knot that projects confidence? Well I’ve got the PERFECT necktie knot for you! In today’s post we are going to learn how to tie the Hanover Knot. A close cousin to the classic full Windsor, the Hanover is a large bold knot that lets everyone know who’s in charge. Three characteristics of the Hanover Knot: 1. It is a large sized knot, and it’s gonna work for larger sized men Characteristic number 2 It works well for both business and social events. Characteristic number 3 The Handover knot works best for the full spread collar. To get started tying the Handover knot Start by draping your tie over your neck; for this knot you will have the outside of the tie facing towards you. Adjust the tie until the wide end is longer than the narrow end. The exact length is going to vary, based on your height and the length of the tie. Now cross the narrow end over the wide end, then cross the wide end in front of the narrow end.

Bring the wide end under and through the neck opening. Pass in front of the narrow end, then go around and behind the narrow end. Next pull the wide end over and through the neck opening, before crossing behind the narrow end. Wrap the wide end across the front of the narrow end, then bring it up and through the neck opening again. You will now pull the wide end through the loop formed at the front of the tie. Tighten the knot by gently pulling on the wide end while holding the knot until you are satisfied with how it looks. Bring the knot up to your neck by holding the narrow end while pushing the knot up with your other hand. And make sure to keep your tie under control by pulling the narrow end through the keeper loop on the back of the tie. If the narrow end isn’t long enough then use a tie bar or tie tack to keep it in place. The bottom of your necktie should rest between the top and the middle of your belt line. If it’s too short start over, making the wide end lower; if it’s too long, start with the wide end higher. The Hanover Knot is a great looking tie knot for men looking to balance a wide spread collar, or for the man who is large and in charge.
