How to knot your tie

The knot should fit proparly around the collar, but shouldn't be too tight. If the knot of your tie is flat, the knot is probably too large or too loose. Try it again!

Practice makes perfect! Clean hands and a mirror are also desirable. The wide tail of your tie should reach exactly to your waistband or belt when you're finished. The narrow part can just stay loose, unless you prefer to use the extra loop in the back (the passentino). 
Leaving it loose usually gives your look a more stylish and modern feel. Remember, the narrow part may never be longer than the wide part of your tie and it should never be tucked away in your shirt. 
Double Windsor

This knot is very traditional and gives a nice thick V to the knot. Perfect for important appointments, such as a jobinterview or a (work)presentation. This type of knot is best worn in combination with a wide spread collar, so that there is enough room for the knot. 

The Double Windsor knot can be created in just four steps.

  1. Keep the tie in a position in which the wide section is about 30 centimeters below the narrow part (image 1).
  2. Raise the wide section and pull it through the loop around the neck. Tighten the knot (image 2+3+4).
  3. Fold the tie to the left and pull the wide part through the loop around the neck again (image 5+6).
  4. Pull the knot slowly towards your neck by pulling the narrow part (image 7).
