Also known as “Pratt” or “The American”, this knot is best suited for shorter ties with a thick lining. It looks somewhat similar to the Windsor, and should be worn with spread collar shirts.
Cross the ends with the back seams facing out. The narrow end lies above the wide end and points to the right.
Bring the wide end forward, up, and over the neck loop. Pull it down with the back seam still showing.
Draw the wrapping tight.
Fold the wide end horizontally from left to right over the narrow end.
Bring the wide end up again through the neck loop.
Tuck the wide end down through the front loop and draw the knot tight.
