Step 4: The "Big Loop"

Here is where this method begins to vary from my other method.

Bring the striped side of the bow tie down infront of the polka dotted bow, and continue to loop it up underneath and back ontop of the dotted side. (this loop should be inbetween your neck and all of the other material.
<p>This is a pretty simple method. <a href="http://ellabing.com/pages/how-to-tie-a-bow-tie" rel="nofollow">http://ellabing.com/pages/how-to-tie-a-bow-tie</a> I also like the story as to how this company got started. It will bring a tear to your eye.... I need to go get a tissue.</p>
One of my favorites guides of tying a bow tie. So simple and fast. I also like this tutorial of <strong><a href="http://howtotieabowtie.info" rel="nofollow">how to tie a bow tie</a></strong>
<br>A very simple method to tying a bowtie. <br> <br>What's interesting is that in the 1980&acirc;€™s, Casual Fridays, --- a chance to discard the jacket and tie for work and come in wearing jeans and golf shirts --- was actually the beginning trend that would lead to Business Casual, as being the common work dress code. With the exception of a few industries --- banking, law, etc. --- most business men wear golf shirts and chinos to work today. <br> <br>Now, the tech world in Portland has begun a movement they call Fancy Fridays, where the men dust off the jackets and ties once a week. Possibly in another decade or so we&acirc;€™ll be back to ties and suits for work? <br> <br>Great article. <br> <br> <br>Everett De Morier <br>BangZingPow.com <br> <br>
This method is genius because it removes 80% of problems I have with tying bow ties--namely half the time I mix up what is going on in the back. Having it all in the front is much easier.
great! im glad it helped
Where did you get that <em>fantastic</em> tie? I've been into formalwear since sophomore year of high school when I worked for a tux shop. We never knew where to send peeps for classy ties, and all we had were these cruddy ones that ended up being way too short to tie around a normal neck.<br/><br/>I've found a couple sites, but none with a pattern like that. Nice Instructable, btw.<br/>
My dad actually found this one at a local menswear store in my town. I've been collecting bow ties for a while now and have found that the best ties are always at places like Brooks Brothers (a bit more expensive but worth the money) or small local shops around town.
very nice. like all the faces too. =D<br/>
I read this just for the pictures :D Love the faces.
me too! but they do creep me out severely!
