Neckties - Hand Made - Men's & Boy's

A Necktie or Tie is a long piece of material worn for decorative purposes around the neck, knotted at the throat  and resting under the shirt collar.  Men wear Ties as part of regular work attire or for more formal functions, such as weddings, black Tie events or school Formals.


Neckties are traditionally worn with the top shirt button fastened and the knot resting comfortably between the collar points. 

Among younger men Ties are sometimes worn as a casual item, tied loosely around the neck with the top shirt button unfastened.


We have Neckties are all Hand Made and are available in  Silk and Polyester.  Our Boy's Neckties are available in Polyester in both plain colours and some fun designs.  The Boy's Ties are Pre-Tied Neckties with an elastic strap for comfort.

How do I tie a Necktie ?

If you are not sure how to Tie a Necktie have a look at the methods below.  


You will find that whichever method you use, the easiest way to tie a Tie yourself is to stand in front of a mirror.   


Why not have some fun and try out different ways of tying your Necktie!

Four-In-Hand 

  • Your collar should be up and your shirt buttoned all the way to the top.
  • Place the tie around your neck with the wide end on your dominant hand side (i.e. if you are right-handed the wider end should              be  on your right side and vice versa).
  • Look for  a seam on the narrow side of the tie
  • Place the wide end over the narrow end so that they cross each other on the seam
  • Bring the wide end around the back of the narrow end and back to the dominant side

NB: You should now have a loop in the tie, if not please start again.

  • Bring the wide end of the tie under the loop and pull it through the knot at the front of the tie
  • Tighten the know by sliding it up the narrow end of the tie

NB: Ensure your tie is straight, that the length of the wider end is appropriate, not below your belt, and that the narrow end is not showing.

There should be a loop at the back of the wider part of your tie to slip the narrow length through.  This will keep your tie tidy & properly in place.

Pratt Knot

Also known as the Shelby Knot or Pratt Shelby, it was made famous by Jerry Pratt, an employee at the US Chamber of Commerce.

  • Your collar should be up and your shirt buttoned all the way to the top
  • Start with the tie inside out
  • Place the tie around your neck with the wide end on your right
  • Cross the wide end underneath the narrow end
  • Bring the wide end over the loop around the neck
  • Pull the wide end under the loop and tighten
  • Bring the wide end over the narrow end from the left to the right
  • Pull the wide end up through the loop and down all the way through the knot
  • Shape the knot in to a triangle and  pull on the narrow end to tighten the tie

There should be a loop at the back of the wider part of your tie to slip the narrow length through.  This will keep your tie in place.

Half Windsor 

The Half Windsor Knot has a bigger knot than the Four-In-Hand and resembles a triangle; it is a modest version of the Full Windsor Knot. 

  • Your collar should be up and your shirt buttoned all the way to the top
  • Place the tie around your neck with the wide end on the right
  • Adjust the tie length so that the wide end is about three times the length of the narrow end
  • Cross the wide end of the tie over the narrow end
  • Bring the wide end around the back of the narrow end and back to the right side
  • Take the wide end over the loop around the neck and tighten a little
  • Bring the wide end over the narrow end, out front, moving from left to right
  • Bring the wide end up through the loop and through the knot in the front
  • Tighten the knot a little and shape it in to a triangle
  • Tighten the tie around your collar by pulling on the narrow end of the tie (this should now be hidden under the wide end)

NB: Ensure your tight is straight, that the length of the wider end is appropriate and that the narrow end is not showing. 

There should be a loop at the back of the wider part of your tie to slip the narrow length through.  This will keep your tie in place. 

Full Windsor 

The Full Windsor Knot is the traditional knot for formal occasions.   The Duke of Windsor started the trend for this knot back in the early 1900's, but it has remained popular to this day.  This knot is best suited to a spread collar.

  • Your collar should be up and your shirt buttoned all the way to the top
  • Place the tie around your neck with the wide end on the right
  • The wide end should be around 30cm lower than the narrow end
  • Cross the wide end over the narrow end 
  • Bring your tie up through the loop and back down over the top
  • The wide end should be on the left of the narrow end
  • Pull the wide end underneath the narrow end and to the right
  • Bring the wide end through the loop, this time on your right side (the wide end should now be inside out)Cross the wide end                   over  the narrow end again, this time from right to left
  • Bring the wide end under the loop
  • Thread the wide end through the loop and the knot at the front of the tie
  • Tighten the knot into a triangle using both hands to adjust. Slowly tighten the narrow end to bring the tie closer to the collar

NB: Ensure your tight is straight, that the length of the wider end is appropriate and that the narrow end is not showing. 

There should be a loop at the back of the wider part of your tie to slip the narrow length through.  This will keep your tie in place.
