How To Tie A Pratt Knot

How To Tie A Pratt Knot

 

  1. Drape the tie around your collar with its seam facing outward and the thick end hanging on your left, 1-2 inches lower than the desired finishing spot.
  2. Cross the thick end underneath the thin end – forming an X-shape below your chin.
  3. Pass the thick end through the loop.
  4. Pull the thick end all the way down and flip the tip so that it’s pointing to your left.
  5. Bring the thick end horizontally across the front of the knot (from right to left). Tuck a finger behind the horizontal band you’ve just created.
  6. Slip the thick end up through the loop from underneath.
  7. Point the tip of the thick end downward – directly on top of the narrow end.
  8. Pull the thick end down through the horizontal band. Snug it firmly into place.
  9. Adjust the necktie by grasping the knot with one hand while pulling on the narrow end gently with the other.
