The Windsor Knot!

The Windsor Knot is a thick, wide and triangular tie knot that projects confidence. It would therefore be your knot of choice for presentations, job interviews, courtroom appearances etc. It is best suited for spread collar shirts and it's actually quite easy to do.

While just about everyone can use this tie knot to tie his tie, it looks especially well on men with longer necks as its wide form shortens the perceived height of the neck a little bit.

To tie the Windsor Knot, select a tie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below:

1) The wide end "W" should extend about 12 inches below the narrow end "N". Cross the wide end "W" over the narrow end "N".









2) Bring the wide end "W" up through the loop between the collar and your tie; then back down.











3) Pull the wide end "W" underneath the narrow end "N" and to the right, back through the loop and to the right again so that the wide end "W" is inside out.










4) Bring the wide end "W" across the front from right to left.










5) Pull the wide end "W" up through the loop again.












6) Bring the wide end "W" down through the knot in front.











7) Using both hands, tighten the knot carefully and draw it up to the collar.

You may want to learn how to tie a necktie for numerous reasons. I made a list of the different people who might need to wear a necktie:

1)People going to church! Basically every male in the church wears a necktie from the boys in the choir to the pastor in the pulpit.

2)People in professional occupations! The majority of offices across the country require their male employees to wear neckties.

3)Sales People! Wearing a necktie gives off aura of professionalism which allows a customer to confidently beleive what the sales person is saying. (Or maybe they just like to look fly!) the typically who switched jobs recently and needs to wear a tie now but doesn't know how to tie it,

4)Recent College Graduates! They need to figuring how to tie a necktie before that first job interview.

5)High School Seniors! Everybody remembers their senior prom....they just can't seem to remember how they tied the necktie for that suit.

HOW TO TIE A FOUR-IN-HAND-KNOT

1. Lift up the collar of your shirt and put the tie around the back of your neck. The wide end should hang down about twice as low as the thin end; it can hang closer to your right or left hand, depending on what's most comfortable for you.

2. Wrap the wide end of the tie around the thin end twice, a few inches below your neck. The wide end should go over the thin end at first. (Images 1 to 3)

3. After wrapping the wide end of the tie around the second time, push it through the back of the V-shape made by the partially formed knot. (Image 4)

4. Tuck the wide end of the tie through the front loop of the knot.

5. Gently pull down on both the thin and wide ends of the tie below the knot until the knot is tight.

6. Hold the thin end of the tie and slide the knot up to your neck. (Image 5)

7. If the thin end of the tie hangs below the wide end, untie the tie and begin again, with the wide end hanging lower than it did the first time.

8. If the wide end of the tie hangs too low, untie the tie and begin again, with the wide end hanging higher than it did the first time.

9. Flip your collar back down once you and your tie look dapper.

Which knot for my necktie?

When tying a necktie you want to pay attention to the material of the necktie you are wearing. Use the Double Windsor for thin materials such as silk, and with wider neckties. Hand-knit or woollen neckties are too thick for the Double Windsor; use a Four-in-hand when you need a smaller knot for your necktie. check back for more tips on how to style your necktie!
