The video footage, uploaded to LiveLeak, shows the man twisting the tie twice over one hand, making a loop and then passing the loose end through it — a process which, not including dramatic pauses, takes no more than a few seconds. Yet not everyone was as convinced of the technique displayed — or at least able to recreate it effectively. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.

Theresa May. Jeremy Corbyn. Robert Fisk. Mark Steel. Janet Street-Porter. John Rentoul. Chuka Ummuna. Shappi Khorsandi. Gina Miller. Our view. Sign the petition. Spread the word. Anyone can complete these knots with ease—all it takes is a little practice. This knot is the most casual and the easiest to tie. It has a slightly imperfect, elongated shape, making it perfect for a narrow-spread collar, plus it works well with skinny or medium-width ties.
This style is perfect when pairing a dress shirt with a casual pant or denim. You can find thousands of videos online of people tying this knot, however, Alex Krasny is truly someone special: He teaches us to tie this knot in 6 seconds. Like the Four-in-Hand, this knot is pretty easy to tie. It steps up your game with a symmetrical knot that is perfectly sized for most tie widths and collars. This knot is the go-to for job interviews and business meetings. Seriously, sorry to hear of your impoverished perspective on clothing.
Lots of people wear a tie unthinkingly, and it becomes a dull unifom. But the same is true of a t-shirt and jeans. Hey wait! I asked my husband your survey questions and he understood the second question differently… he took it to mean the final five years as in, shorten your life by 5 years for money now. Tim, Great Post. Where in NC are you. IF you are still here and anywhere near the Raleigh Durham area I would love to buy you a beer.
Hey Tim nice video the windsor is one of the better tie knots. I need a little help in getting started with some of the concepts he proposes…. Yes, I feel like killing someone at least once a day. I need help, am willing to do anything to imporve. Thanks, Ernie. Thank god people in the music biz do not have to wear ties….

Oh snap.. Keep Rockin!!! Get Psyched for that show.. I am now going to go eat some pumpkin seeds and Goji Berries from Nepal.. I am so jacked-up!!! I took your reminder about the Google AdWords and ran with it. Thanks sooo much for the push!! Thanks for the video. That said, I still find I have to try a few times with most of my ties before I get the length perfect. This is because I have a variety of fabrics and lengths, and each one requires a different starting point.
However, I really liked your tip about getting it square.
Step 2: Over
I like my tie to look perfect, my pant creases to be razor-sharp, etc. Unless prices were artificially controlled. Very good. I let him watch your little video and he had it down perfectly after the second try. Thank you from him and another thank you from me! Hospital dress codes typically urge doctors to look professional, which, for male practitioners, has usually meant wearing a tie.
But as concern over hospital-born infections has intensified, doctors are taking a closer look at their clothing. Fake nails, jewellery and watches, which the department warned could harbour germs, are also out. Thanks so much for this! Thanks again! Just want to send a quick thank you. Thanks to you, I can finally tie a perfect Windsor every time.
God Bless. I like the way you explained how to tie the tie.. Very helpful. I have been trying to figure out how to do this method for some time. But how do I get the dimples??? And is one dimple or two in fashion? I like the double dimples but will settle for learning how to get one perfect one.
Candidates' Neckties: What Their Knots Mean
Thank you! Hello everybody! Tell me what do you think about. Quite a week, indeed. I have been reading your blog last couple of weeks and enjoy every bit.
Meaning of "Windsor knot" in the English dictionary
It is amazing how something so simple works every time. As someone has to put on a tie about every other day unfortunately , this might be the most useful tip I will receive this year.
When i was kid i learnt once how to tie a good tie and still i remember those moves of my fingers and still im very good with doing this. Its just work of fingers and lips. I love wearing a necktie. I have one on as I am typing this. Guys look great when they are dressed up. Only comment I would like to add is that a dimple in the middle of the tie is the finishing touch- right where the main part of the tie comes through the knot, it should form a sort of channel in the center. For a shorter tie, simply start the skinny, back end higher up on your shirt.
If it gets too short to tuck into the tie when the knot is done, simply tuck it into your shirt. Ladies, I encourage you to pay attention. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in:. Email required Address never made public.
