Here is the instructions for how to tie a tie which allow men and women to sport a polished tie in minutes. People should practice tying knots in front of a mirror for best results.

How to Tie the Windsor Knot

Full Windsor knot is a slightly more advanced way to tie your necktie. If you like large tie knots, and/or need the right tie knot for a shirt with a wide spread collar, then the Windsor is perfect.

Featuring a polished triangular shape, the Windsor knot offers a good option for job interviews, presentations and social occasions. Because of its wide appearance, this knot looks best with a spread-collar shirt. Although it may appear complicated, tying the full Windsor knot is accomplished without much difficulty.

Steps

  1. Start with the wide end of the tie on the right and the small end 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). Only move the active (wide) end.
  2. Wide end over the small end to the left.
  3. Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  4. Down to the left.
  5. Around the back of the small end to the right.
  6. Up to the center, towards neck loop.
  7. Through the neck loop and down to the right.
  8. Across the front to the left.
  9. Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  10. Down through the loop you’ve just created in the front.
  11. Tighten the knot by pulling down on the wide end. Slide the knot up & adjust.
