A longer and narrow shaped tie knot that easily ties with a fancy dimple at the center of the knot. While considered a more “expert” knot, I broke it down into 8 simple steps:
Manhattan Knot Step by Step Instructions
Because of its longish shape, the Manhattan is perfect for narrow spread, and button down collar dress shirts. It is a fancy knot and somewhat more challenging knot that I would recommend for the more experienced tie wearer. If you already know how to tie your ties with 3 or 4 different knots, then the Manhattan would be another great addition.
Lay the tie around your neck with the stitching facing out. Make sure that the wide end hangs 12 inches lower than the narrow end. Then wrap the wide end around the narrow end.
Pull the wide end through the gap between collar and the necktie.
Pull the wrapping tight and then pull the wide end back down.
Pull the wide end behind the narrow end.
Then wrap the wide end all the way around the narrow end of the tie.
Pull the wide end once again through the gap between collar and the necktie.
Don’t pull tight yet because you need to keep the loop on top of the knot loose.
Push the wide end of the tie through the loop on top of the knot. Then pull down on the wide end.
Pull tight, adjust the knot to your preference, and center it between your collar.
That's it!! Now go out there and strut your new Gent status!!
