How to Tie a Hanover Knot

The Hanover Knot is a large and symmetrical tie knot. The Hanover Knot is only a little larger from the known Windsor knot, however forms a different, more bulky tie knot appearance. Unlike the Windsor knot, the Hanover knot starts the tying from an upside-down starting position of the necktie (causing the narrow end underneath the necktie to show its back side when exceeding it). The Hanover is considered a popular knot and used by many, and definitely worth a try. The Hanover will be perfect for too thin too long neckties, due to its large knot.
