Best Way To Tie A Tie

Half Windsor Knot
One of the easiest and professional looking knots to learn is the half Windsor knot. Here’s how you make it:
• Start by hanging the tie on your neck. The smaller end of the tie should be on your left and the larger end on your right. And depending on the length of the tie you want, adjust the small end likewise.
• A long length will call for the lower end to reach down to length of 1 foot. For the shorter length, the small end can reach further beyond 1 foot.
• Now keep the larger end on top of the shorter end and fold it from underneath (left to right) the short end. Doing so will create a loop at your collar level for a knot to be made.
• Move the larger end of the tie (down to up) from inside the loop and pull it tightly to affirm the wrap. Now move the larger end over the knot (right to left).
• Once again, pull the large end of your tie from inside the loop (down to up). Now holding the tip of the larger end, make it go through from inside the knot (downwards). Pull the large end tightly to adjust on the knot and tie it perfectly.
• The knot is now done! Now, by holding the knot and pulling the smaller end of the tie, make the knot go closer to your collar where it will quietly stand; giving you a perfect look.
Four-In-Hand Knot
Professional and subtle! Most clip-on ties impersonate this knot and it is another easiest way to tie a tie. Here’s how you make it:
• Start by hanging the tie on your neck. The smaller end of the tie should be on your left and the larger end on your right. And depending on the length of the tie you want, adjust the small end likewise.
• A long length will call for the lower end to reach down to length of 1 foot. For the shorter length, the small end can reach further beyond 1 foot.
• Now keep the larger end on top of the shorter end and fold it from underneath (left to right) the short end. Doing so will create a loop at your collar level for a knot to be made.
• Again, move the larger end over the top of the shorter end (right to left), making another fold. Now, move the large end of the tie (down to up) from inside the loop and pull it tightly to affirm the wrap.
• Now holding the tip of the larger end, make it go through from inside the knot (downwards). Pull the large end tightly to adjust on the knot and tie it perfectly.
• The knot is now done! Now, by holding the knot and pulling the smaller end of the tie, make the knot go closer to your collar. This would give you a perfect look.
