Bow tie

Place the bow tie around your collar with the left side sitting 1.5 inches longer than the right.

Cross the longer end over the shorter end and pinch the crossing point.

Pull the longer end up behind the crossing point.

Fold the shorter end in two to make ‘half a bow’ and keep holding.

Bring the longer end down over the top so that it is hanging down – don’t let go of the crossing point!

With your free hand, fold the longer strand back on itself and pass through the loop at the back of the bow tie.

Pull it to tighten and tweak to make an even bow. You can relax now!

 

Four in hand knot

Place the tie around your collar with the wider end on the left, sitting about 10 inches longer than the narrow end.

Cross the wider end over the narrow end.

Bring the longer end back around behind the shorter end and hold it horizontally.

Bring it back over the top, in front of the narrow end.

Pull the wider end up behind the loop, towards your neck.

Holding the narrow end with your left hand, bring the wide end down through the loop with your right hand.

That’s it! Simply tighten, pushing it up until it is in place and you’re done!

 

Full windsor knot

Place the tie around your collar with the wider end on the left, sitting about 10 inches longer than the narrow end.

Bring the wider end up in front of the loop towards your neck.

Loop it behind the narrow end to your left so the wider end is inside out.

Bring the wide end back across the front and pull it up behind the loop.

Bring the wide end back down through the knot.

Tighten and tweak until it’s neat. Tah-dah!
