How to Tie a Tie:
Half Windsor Knot

Learning how to tie a tie is not quite like learning how to ride a bike. Just because you got it a couple times in the past doesn't mean you can remember how to properly tie a tie for that occasional special event.

Knot tieing is not a natural skill for most men so we've consolidated as much useful information as we could to help you tie that perfect knot.

What you'll find below is a close-up image of the half Windsor knot, a series of instructional steps on tieing the half Windsor as well as an instructional video.

Once learned, the knot is wonderfully symmetrical (unlike the Four-in-Hand ). Not only is the Windsor is also very neat and professional looking, it works quite well with both spread colloar and traditional spread collar shirts
