How to Tie an Army Necktie


Precision is a military specialty. From drills to uniforms, each aspect of life in the U.S. Army is governed by specific, straightforward requirements. The U.S. Army Service Uniform website specifies the four-in-hand knot as the official knot of both casual and formal occasions in which army personnel wear neckties.

Four-in-Hand Knot

  • Rest the tie around your neck with the wide end hanging on your left, about twice as long as the narrow end.

  • Cross the wide end over the narrow end and to your right, under and back to the left, then finally over once more to the right.

  • Loop the wide end up through the hole underneath your neck.

  • Slide the wide end back down through the front loop of the knot and adjust as needed.

  • Tighten and adjust the knot as needed, remembering that it will always look slightly asymmetrical.
