How to tie a tie?
Well, let’s start with the basics of neckwear. Whether you’re wearing a handmade tie, a fashion tie, a luxury silk tie or even a designer tie; achieving the perfect knot can sometimes seem next to impossible.
Although there are many methods and varieties to choose from when it comes to neckwear, the ‘four in hand’ tie method is perhaps the most common and also the easiest to achieve. This asymmetrical knot is ideal for button down shirts and works well with fashion ties and wide ties. Begin with crossing the wide end of the tie over the narrow end before turning it back underneath the narrow end. Repeat this step and then pull the wide end of the tie up through the loop around your neck. Next, holding your finger loosely on the knot, pull the wide end down through the loop before positioning into place. Hold the narrow end of the tie and manoeuvre the knot upwards to finish the tie. Sounds simple right?
If you are wearing a luxury necktie then you may want to choose a more complex method of tying your luxury tie to really show it in its best light. Other methods include the Windsor knot, which may take a little bit of practice before achieving the perfect finish. Begin with crossing the wide end of the tie over the narrow and then place the wide end up between the tie and your shirt collar and bring it back down. Next you’ll need to wrap the wide end of the tie around the narrow, starting from right to left. You’ll then need to bring the wider end of the tie in front and over the loop between the colour and the tie. The penultimate step to tying the perfect ‘Windsor Knot’ involves wrapping the wide end around the narrow part one more time and pushing up through the loop again. The final step is to loosely stabilise the knot, slip the wide end through it and then tighten.
If all those instructions sound like too much effort for a tie but you still want to be able to wear luxury neckwear then fear not, there is an alternative. There is a way to avoid all of the steps mentioned above and still look great in a luxury tie! All you need to do is purchase a tie with ribbons, as this allows you to put on the tie on in less than 10 seconds and still achieve a smart, luxurious outfit. So whether you are looking for an easy day to day alternative or luxury neckwear for special occasions, ribbon ties can allow you to achieve the perfect look in seconds.
