I thankfully don't have many situations where I have to wear a tie right now (I'm only 19), because I have a very hard time getting the dimple to form or making it look right. Could someone please explain what it is that causes the dimple to form? (e.g. at what steps during the tying of the knot the dimple begins to form) If I understood that better, I might have more luck getting the dimple to form. Also, are there any alternative ways to tie a necktie that don't involve a dimple. And also, I usually tie the four-in-hand knot because it's the simplest and I'm not an expert tie tier, and this site recommended it for shorter men who want to look taller (I'm 5'7'').
