That's great for a Windsor. But if you want to have your tie tied in a more elaborate way - like the Eldredge or the Trinity knot -, you actually have to learn how to tie it.

By far the easiest way I've seen so far. First try! As a Step Mother that has to tie her Son's tie for every Debate Tournament, (Gotta' teach Him this method) I usually have to give it couple of tries with other methods to get the full windsor. Thanks for sharing!

This is OK, but not really clear to me. Not sure what knot this even is. Here is a resource that has over 15 different step by step diagrams of how to tie a tie . This has tie video instructionstie video and covers all the way from the Bathus knotto the Windsor knot. It really is worth referencing also. Hope this helps.

I can tie a tie in one second. I use a trick taught by a magician known as the Amazing Randi and appeared in the now defunct OMNI magazine of the late '70's. It's way cool & you only need one hand! I often flip the tie over my shoulder as I'm tying it so others can't see the knot. Then I ask them to count while I "tie" the tie. I whip it out in an instant, already tied. I'm sure you can find this method somewhere on the web. I don't have time right now to make a video of it or describe the method... maybe later.

defiantly takes more than 10 seconds. you have to make all the pre-fold twists then do that procedure. then put over your neck. probably takes 20 seconds. I can do the normal full windsor on my neck in ten seconds so it is much easier.

This tie tricks is full windsor, but you can adjust it into half-windsor knot as you want.
Could you put up a direction or another video for half-windsor option? This trick looks awesome and it'd save tons of time if there was a half-windsor option. Personally, I've never seen that many people with full windsor ties. Guess people are too busy to spend time on that extra loop. :P Thanks much.

Interesting. But I can still tie a tie on myself without looking, and while it might take longer than shown, it's not much longer. And it's already on my neck. 20 inch neck's suck BTW. :-P
nice!
