How to tie a Windsor knot

  1. Start with the wide end of the tie on the right and the short end on the left. The wide end should extend about 30 cms below the narrow end of the tie. This will vary depending on your height and the length and thickness of the tie. Only move the active (wide) end. 
  2. Cross the wide end horizontally in front close to your neck to make an X.
  3. Bring the wide end up into the neck loop (hole between your neck and tie) from underneath. 
  4. Bring the wide end down to the left. 
  5. Bring the wide end around the back of the small end to the right. 
  6. Bring the wide end up to the center, towards neck loop. 
  7. Bring the wide end through the neck loop and down to the right. 
  8. Bring the wide end across the front to the left. 
  9. Bring the wide end up into the neck loop from underneath. 
  10. Bring the wide end down through the loop you’ve just created in the front. 
  11. Tighten the knot by pulling it at the wide end. Slide the knot up and adjust the knot.
