I just have read my posts and I see that a suit’s blog doesn’t have any post about how to tie a tie. That’s impossible! O.K. Come on, I am going to show one of the most difficult tasks that you must do when you suit up.
I am sure that if you don’t read this post, your tie will look like:
Single ended bow tie:
It’s a classic. It is the most used by the people because it is simple and look well with every kind of tie and shirt. It is recommended for middle-size men.
Turn up the collar of his shirt, button closure and readjust his tie.
Step 1: Below the neck, you have to across the widest part over the narrow further down the neck.
Step 2: Slide the wide part below the narrow part.
Step 3: Fold the wide end over the narrow part.
Step 4: Pass the wide end over behind the tie putting his index finger on the knot being formed. Remove finger and slide the widest part inside the knot.
Step 5: Hold the narrow part, immediately gently pull the wide part to close the knot. Adjust the knot, then upload it to the last button neck.
Once the knot is made , the narrow part should not be seen and the tip of the wide end should be at waist level.
Double ended bow tie:
The double knot is very similar to simple knot, is distinguished by its second wind, to begin the widest part is passed twice around the narrowest part.
With a thicker appearance than the overhand knot, double knot ideally combines with almost all the shirts. Also it is perfect with almost all least thick ties too.
Slide the tie around the neck after closing the last button and raised the collar of his shirt.
The two sides of the tie are placed asymmetrically. The widest part is left longer than the narrow end of the tie.
Step 1: Below the neck, the first time to spend an environment widest part of the narrow part (see step 1-3 simple knot).
Step 2: Spend a second time the broad side of the narrow part environment.
Step 3: Raise the wide end up under the tie and slide the knot formed by the first or second rotation.
Step 4: Finally you adjust knot obtained, upload and center in the middle of the neck.
The Windsor Knot
The Windsor knot is the knot for special occasions. Very English, its name comes from the Duke of Windsor who popularized it.
The Windsor knot is very bulky, so you must perform preferably on wide necks.
Sometimes complex to perform, to successfully obtain this knot, it should fall between the two sides of the neck and hide the top button of his shirt.
Slide the tie around the neck after closing the last button and raised the collar of his shirt. The two sides of the tie are placed asymmetrically. The widest part is left longer than the narrow end of the tie.
Step 1: Cross the wide end over the narrow part. Keep the crossing, and next, make up the broad side buckle under the tie and folding.
Step 2: Bring the wide end toward the other side of the crossing under. Make another buckle up the widest part of your tie and folding.
Step 3: Moving from the broad side horizontally across the narrow part.
Step 4: Moving vertically under the broad side tie, stretch and slide down the broad part of the buckle.
Step 5: Keep close hand, pull gently on the wide part to readjust the tie, center the knot and up through the neck.
