An everyday basic knot which is highly simple and ideal for buttoned collars and very wide ties. Its great advantage is its use with heavy fabrics and/or with close-cut collars. Do not use it on collars that are long or wide-spaced. Before you tie the knot, put the tie in place around your neck, then twist the wide end 180°. To avoid doing the twist you can simply place your tie around your neck back to front.
