Introduction: Easily Tie a Tie

Heading to a formal event and don't know how to put a tie on? Fear not. This tutorial is here to help show you how to tie what's known as a Half Windsor.

Step 1: The Set Up

Start with your collar up and drape the tie around the back of your neck. The wide end should extend lower than the thinner end and should be on whichever side is your dominant hand. (Right side for right handed people left for left handed)

Step 2: Across

Bring the wide end across your chest in front of the narrow end.

Step 3: Up and Through

Bring the wide end up and pull it through the hole between your collar and tie.

Step 4: Around the Back

Wrap the wide end around the back, then in front of the narrow end.

Step 5: Up Again

Bring the wide end back up through the hole between your tie and collar again

Step 6: Through the Hole

Pull the wide end down through the hole in the knot.

Step 7: Tighten It Up

Tighten the knot by pulling down on the thin end.

Step 8: Done!

Fold down your collar so the sides of your tie aren’t showing and tuck the thin end through the loop on the back of the wide end. And just like that you're done!
