Step 1: Turn your shirt collar up and button it Face the mirror, flip up the collar of your dress shirt, and button the top button. Tip Use the double Windsor knot instead of the more basic four-in-hand for more formal occasions. Step 2: Put on the tie Drape the necktie around your neck so that the wide end is on your right and the thin end is on your left. Tip The wide end should hang about a foot longer than the thin end. Step 3: Cross the ends over Hold the wide end in your right hand and the thin end in your left and cross the wide end over the thin end. Allow 6 to 8 inches of the thin end to hang below the intersection point. Step 4: Bring the wide end through the loop Bring the wide end behind and through the loop around your neck and pull it downward. Step 5: Curl the wide end around Wrap the wide end around the back of the narrow end and thread it upward and through the neck loop again. Step 6: Finish the knot Wrap the wide end around the knot and pull it to the right. Then bring it around the back and upward, through the loop. Finally, tuck it into the loop in the front of the knot that was created by wrapping the wide end around the knot, and pull the end through. Step 7: Adjust the tie Adjust the double Windsor knot so that it is centered and the angles are sharp. Pull the collar down when you are satisfied with the shape of your knot. Did You Know?
