How to Tie a Big Tie Knot


There is a specific tie knot for just about any type of occasion, from informal, work tie knots to formal-event tie knots. The Windsor, which forms a large triangle, is a large knot meant to be worn at formal occasions. Its other names include the full Windsor and the double Windsor. The Windsor knot looks best on a tie that's worn with a wide-collared jacket.

  • Wrap the necktie around your neck and place the thicker end twelve inches below the thinner end.

  • Wrap the thicker end over the front and then over the back of the thinner end.

  • Pull the thicker end up and through the loop between the collar and the tie and bring the thick end to the front.

  • Twist the thick end of the tie so that the part that is in the back is curled.

  • Pull the thick end through the newly formed loop and run it in front, with the front end of the thicker part of the tie facing out.

  • Tuck the thick end through the loop for the third time and bring it down in front.

  • Pull down gently on the wide end and the knot will tighten. Slowly bring the knot up to your collar.
