I'm Charles Brunold from New York. I'm going to teach you how to do a Pratt Knot today. The Pratt Knot is also called a Shelby Knot. I have the particularity to start upside down. So, you start with the tie the wide end about 12" below the left of the narrow end. Here I'm going in with a pretty skinny tie. So, the knot we are going to obtain is not as wide and fluffy as the one you would obtain if you did it with a wider tie, obviously. So, this is how you proceed. Starting with the tie upside down, you go the wide end underneath the narrow end, over, inside and out, over the narrow end. Just pull it in front with the wide end in front. Bring it underneath and just slide it inside the loop. There you go. You've got a Pratt Knot. Just adjust the knot. Tighten it and adjust your collar. So, this knot, the Pratt Knot is very suitable for any type of dress shirt, any type of collars. But, here I like to wear it with like a skinny tie and a widespread collar like this one. Seeing the result is fantastic. So, this is how you tie the Pratt Knot.

Hi. Can someone/anyone tell me the difference between the Nicky knot and Pratt knot? Also, how is the half-Windsor different in shape and size compared to the Nicky and Pratt knot? Anxiously awaiting a response....

How formal is it against the half-Windsor?
Graxster (1 month ago)
Four-in-hand is the least formal, Pratt and half-Windsor are the same formality (medium), and full/double Windsor is the most formal.

the Windsor is overrated and anyone who uses it has no sense of fashion, a pleb cookiecutter if you will

yep this is good I learn how to tie

This is very similar to Nicky Knot, except that when you pull the narrow end out, the knot won't untie itself. Therefore I think Nicky Knot is a better knot over this.
David W. Tamkin (1 year ago)
Exactly my opinion, Monte Mu, and exactly the reason I tie a Nicky instead of a Pratt.

+IceCreamJunkie the only difference is that at 0:50 you reverse the wide end to the other side and cross it over to the left instead of right

The Nicky knot is harder to tie though.
Martin Bulahan (2 years ago)
One word. Dimple. I man come on man you've got the knot and the style, but you have to tie a tie with a dimple!
Martin Bulahan (2 years ago)
*mean*
Mikhail Bolus (2 years ago)
Terrific. Not as sloppy as a four in hand but not as garish as the windsor - just perfect
HumpinGrannys (2 years ago)
Seems similar to your Nicky knot. Great video though.

There are easy ways to tie all of the knots in his videos in way less time and effort creating the illusions of all of these knots
Caesar Qian (3 years ago)
what's the difference between the Pratt knot and a Half-Windsor knot??? kinda feels the same to me, only to reverse the tie tho,,,
FrugalFellowsFashion (3 years ago)
How you tie them is obviously different. The half windsor takes up a little more fabric too, so it's great if you're shorter and struggle with tie length. 
Max Izaac (3 years ago)
Half is more asymmetrical, I think.
etamlous (3 years ago)
Pratt knot is my favorite knot compared to anything else out there. It always comes out symmetrical and neat. Even the full Windsor doesn't always look symmetrical and can look too bulky.

Go no further. This is easily the best, simplest way to tie a tie.
