How to Fix a Tie

Save

A nicely tied tie can be a terrific accessory. The Windsor style is a common way to tie a knot in a tie. When this knot is tied correctly it is thick, wide and triangular. The Windsor knot is well suited for spread collar shirts and is a good choice for job interviews and business presentations. With a little bit of practice while standing in front of a mirror you will soon master the art of tying a tie.
