The Windsor knot is the don of all knots, fat and wide.  It projects confidence and works best on a tie of thin material.  We’re going to show you how it’s done.  You’re going to go from this to this.  

Step one, you will need a tie to check the end results. Step two, prepare.  Turn up the collar of your shirt and do up your top button.  Drape the tie around your neck with the main seem facing inwards.  The wider end should be on the side of your dominant hand.  If you’re right handed, it goes on the right side and if you’re left handed, the left side.   Step three, position your tie.  If you look carefully, you will see a seem on the front of the narrow end of the tie.  Cross the wide end of the tie over the seem.  This will ensure that when finished, your tie will be the correct length and reaches to your waistline.  Wearing it too short or too long will not look good.   Step four, up, under, over.  From the starting position, pass the wide end up through the middle of the loop around your neck.  Bring the wide end to the right then pass it under the knot to the left side.  Thread it over the loop around your neck again and back to the right.  Let’s have a look at this step again, up, under, over.  

Step five, across and down.  Throw the wide end across the knot to the right and up through the loop around your neck.  Finally, thread the wide end down through the middle of the knot.  Let’s look at that again, throw it across, up through, thread it down.

Step six, tighten.  Tighten the knot by holding the narrow end and sliding the knot up.  Turn down your collar and take your time to do any final adjustments.  How does it look?  Excellent.

Step seven, removing your tie.  One more thing, when taking off your tie, slide the narrow end out and undo the knot.  Don’t just loosen the knot and pull it over your head, this will damage the fabric.  Done, perfect, you’re good to go.
