Now that you’ve watched our how-to video, let me provide you with a written tutorial to help you master the St Andrew Knot.

Summary Of The St Andrew Knot Size of the knot: Medium & slightly narrow Level of difficulty: Easy Formality: Business/professional or social Recommended collars: Point collars, button-down collars St Andrew Knot – Description

That’s what makes the St Andrew Knot useful. It’s basically a medium-sized knot that suits most types of faces and environments. Although the design is asymmetrical, it’s even enough to look almost symmetrical unless seen up-close.

It is classified as a narrow tie knot, but it’s slightly larger than those that fall in the same category. That makes it a good option for guys with rounder faces or broader shoulders – keeping things proportional.

The St Andrews Knot is a very convenient knot with a little bulk to it.

You won’t be wasting much time learning it or doing the actual knot.

The St Andrew Knot can be tied quickly (although not as quickly as smaller knots) and it is self-releasing – which means that you can pull on its tail end to undo the whole thing. It’s something men can wear comfortably to both formal and informal occasions.

Take note: Since it’s not purely symmetrical, other guys prefer to go for the Windsor or Pratt (Shelby) Knot. So if you’re meeting with someone important like a big client or VIP – you need to consider the risk of your tie looking a bit “sloppy” or distracting. Always remember the purpose of your style.

For its size, however, the St Andrew Knot is the most convenient option. And it still remains popular, especially in the United Kingdom.

Drape the necktie around your collar with the seam facing out and the thick end on your left, two to three inches lower than the desired finishing position. Cross the thick end horizontally beneath the thin end, making an X-shape under your chin. Bring the thick end horizontally across the front of the thin end. Continue looping the thick end around the thin end, passing it horizontally behind the back of the thin end from left to right. Flip the thick end vertically up and over the front of the knot, then tuck it back down behind the knot. Bring the thick end out and to the left of the thick end. Bring the thick end across the front of the knot from left to right. This will form a horizontal band. Slip a finger through it. Finally, bring the thick end up behind the knot and tuck it through the horizontal loop you made in Step 7. Pull the thick end all the way through and tighten the knot by grasping it with one hand and pulling carefully on the thick end with the other.

To release the knot, just pull the narrow end up and out — the rest of the knot will fall apart without it.

The St Andrew Knot is a good, medium-sized knot suited for most faces and purposes.

While not quite symmetrical, it's even enough to appear almost symmetrical unless seen up close.

Congratulations! You have a finished St Andrew Knot – which will surely come in handy when you’re dressing up in a hurry, or during those events when you won’t need your tie on the whole time. Enjoy the added convenience while keeping your style sharp.

Now that you’ve mastered the St Andrew Knot, let me give you a few “why-to” tips for wearing your tie.

Tie Tip #1 – Make Your Knot Crisp

Whether you’re modeling your new St Andrew Knot or styling any other knot, it’s important to keep your knot crisp, sharp, and neat.

Keep your knot crisp sharp and neat: What’s at the top HAS to be enticing and appealing, or nobody will want to see what’s underneath.

When you’re conversing with others, whether at a business or casual event, your crisp-looking tie knot will help keep your appearance in check.  With a well-groomed look and the confidence that comes with it, you’ll be able to dive deeper into your conversations and connect more deeply with others.

A crisp knot isn’t the only thing to consider when tying your knot of choice …

Tie Tip #2 – Fix Your Tie At The Right Length

Let’s go from the tip-of-the-iceberg to the bottom of the iceberg.  In other words, let’s talk about the end of your tie!


Your tie should fall between the middle of your belt and the top of your belt.  Anywhere within that range leaves you looking tidy and polished.

st andrew knot length

If your tie falls above your belt, it’s too short!  It’s noticeably out-of-place and will probably draw a couple of unwanted looks.  Or a couple of jokes at your expense.

If your tie falls below your belt, it’s too long!  Not only will your tie look awkward, but you probably won’t enjoy the tie swinging back and forth in your below-the-belt region as you walk around.

When your necktie is at the right length, your tie will be complete from end-to-end.  From knot to bottom. 

That sense of completion will allow you to feel more completely put together, which will provide you additional comfort and confidence as you interact with your boss or you socialize with your friends.  Your St Andrew Knot needs a congregation, right?

Besides the knot and the length, there’s one other thing you must ALWAYS remember to account for when wearing ties …

Tie Tip #3 – Make Your Tie Match The Outfit … And The Occasion

You can have a perfectly-crafted knot and an incredible tie length, but if your tie is NOT right for your outfit or the occasion, then you may as well just leave the tie at home.

Before you match your tie to your outfit, PLEASE make sure that you match your outfit to the occasion.  If you’re going to an interview, think suit.  If you’re going to a baby shower, think slacks and a button-down.

Now that you’ve matched your outfit to the occasion, you MUST match your tie to the outfit.

Color.  Pattern.  Fabric.  Width.

There’s a lot to go into with these, so click here for in-depth information on color matching, pattern matching, and shirt-tie combinations.

When you match your tie to your outfit, you let your crisp tie knot and your well-fixed tie shine. 

Additionally, you let your tie shine as an expression of your personality and your style.

There you have it, gents.

Whatever tie you choose, always make your knot crisp, fix your tie at the right length, and ensure that your tie matches the outfit and the occasion.  With these three tips in mind, you’ll always look well-groomed, feel confident, and adapt to whatever business or casual event you plan on attending next.

The St Andrew Knot is still the most amazing tie know you’ve NEVER heard of … BUT … there are some other pretty awesome knots out there.
