TIES STEP BY STEP GUIDE

TIES STEP BY STEP GUIDE

In the modern day, wearing a tie has become less common and knowing how to tie one properly can result in an unnecessary stressful situation on a wedding day for example. With this being said, fear ‘knot’ with our simple step-by-step guide on the two most popular/timeless tie knots that will cover all your bases for you next upcoming event.

CASUAL LOOKS - THE SIMPLE KNOT

The simple knot contains the fewest possible steps and is very easy to learn. The Simple knot is compact with an asymmetry causing it to lean toward the active end. This knot works well with thick neckties or for tall guys who need a little extra length. (Credit ties.com)

step-1

Start with the backside of the tie facing away from you, the wide end is on the right and the small end is on the left. The tip of the small end should rest slightly above your belly-button (this will vary depending on your height and the length & thickness of your tie). Move only the active (wide) end.

STEP-2

Wide end under the small end to the left.

STEP-3

Across the small end to the right.

STEP-4

Up into the neck loop from underneath.

STEP-5

Down through the loop you’ve just made in the front.

STEP-6

Pull down on the wide end to tighten. Slide the knot up to adjust.

FORMAL LOOKS – THE WINDSOR KNOT

Although the Duke of Windsor never specifically used the Windsor knot, he did favor a wide triangular knot. In actuality, the Duke achieved his trendsetting look by tying a Four-in-Hand with specially made wide and extra thick ties. The Windsor delivers a symmetrical and solid triangular knot that works best with a spread collar and provided a more formal finish to any suit. (Credit ties.com)
