How to tie a tie


This demonstration should take about five minutes and beat a pace that you can follow along to. 

Before we start you should note your tie has a skinny end and a fat end. Your first decision is going to be which side of your body you place ends. 

It doesn't matter which side your tie goes on, it won't affect the tie tying process I have posted a mirror image of this Post if that suits you better. 


Not only does your tie have two ends, it has two different sides: The face side is smooth, and the seam side is on the back we're going to start with the seam side down so take your tie, and with seam side down, place it around your neck flat against your body, again with the seam side down. 

Here's where we adjust for length. You pull on the fat end so that the skinny end is about at your rib cage. Now choosing length is a very difficult step, its a very important step, but in this part of the process we're just trying to tie the tie properly, So we're going to skip it. 

We will get it later now we're going to take the fat end and cross it over the skinny end move the skinny and over take the fat end cross it over the skinny end, making an ''X''. 

You'll notice I have one hand holding the bottom of the ''X'' to simplify the process I'm going to have one hand do all the work while the other hand just holds the centre on the ''X''. 

The centre of the ''X'' becomes the knot so I'm going to call hand that holds the ''X'' the knot hand.'' Choose which hand you want to be the ''knot hand'' and take hold of the centre of the ''X''. 

Make sure you have a good grip and don't let go but feel free to adjust if you need to. Now the space between the centre of the ''X'' and your neck. 


Is what I call area, now there's four places we can put the tie we can make the tie out of the hole we can make the tie go behind the hole and we can make the tie go across the hole. 

1. OUT 

The first step we're going to do is take the tie and make it go out of the hole so take the tie and make it go out of the hole I do that by placing my hand in the front of the tie and then just push it straight up through the hole with it half way through you can use your knot hand to hold the bottom of the tie. 

As you move your working had around pull the rest of the tie through flipping it over and let it fall in front of you. 


Now we're going to take the tie and make it go behind the hole, so go ahead and grab the tie pull it over to the side, and just push it straight through behind the hole. 

I'm going to place it on my shoulder so you can see that the seam here is now facing out also take note. That this part is kind of low. 

3. IN 

Now we're going to take the tie and make it go in to the hole I'm going to grab under flip it around and push it through the hole as I'm halfway through I'm going to grab it with my pinky, it's not necessary,. 

Just go ahead and pull the rest of it through again, now flipping it so the seam side is showing take a good look at the knot feel free to give a small tug on the tie. 

At the end of every step you don't want it too tight. 


But then again not too loose we're not going to take the tie and go across the hole at this point I have a good look tip for you before you go across the hole, put your finger right here again I'm going to place the tie on my shoulder just so you can see that the face is now showing. 

The next step is 

5. OUT

Is to take the tie and make it go out of the hole again as we do that we're going to kind of flip it to take the time kind of just push your fingers around and through again as you make the tie go out of the hole you're going flip it over. 

So again the face is showing, in future it's at this point you may want to switch hands but then you won't have the benefit of the tip 


I gave earlier to finish your going to take the fat end of the tie and put it behind the across step it's kind of hard to explain where that is, which is why I told you to put your finger there, 

So take fat end and make it go right where your finger is again I'm using one hand, but at this point it can be easier to just grab the fat end with that one finger either way you're going to pull the fat end through and keep pulling until the knot is tight as you're pulling the knot is tight as you're pulling the knot tight make sure not to lose the skinny end. 

You can squeeze the bottom to help form the proper shape pulling the two tops apart will also help to tighten the tie around her neck grab the skinny end with one hand and the bottom of the knot with the other hand.

And now you do a pull' and slide'' motion pull in the skinny end side the knot, pull slide tidy up a bit make sure everything looks nice and now you can flip your caller down. 

It's at this point you should also do up the top button give it one more tighten and you're all done. Now we just need to get the proper length and maybe a little faster.
