Tying a tie can be a tricky skill to master, but with a little practice, it’s easy to do. Whether you’re getting ready for a job interview, a formal event, or just want to look your best, knowing how to tie a tie is a useful skill to have.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to tie a tie:
Step 1: Start with the wide end of the tie on your right side and the narrow end on your left. The wide end should be longer than the narrow end.
Step 2: Cross the wide end over the narrow end near your neck.
Step 3: Bring the wide end up and over the loop you just made.
Step 4: Take the wide end behind the loop and then bring it up and over the loop again.
Step 5: Hold the knot you just made with your left hand and bring the wide end down through the knot.
Step 6: Hold the knot with your left hand and use your right hand to adjust the tie by pulling on the narrow end and sliding the knot up towards your neck.
Step 7: Once the knot is adjusted to your liking, tuck the narrow end of the tie behind the loop near your neck.
Step 8: Adjust the knot one final time by pulling on the narrow end and sliding the knot up towards your neck.
