How To: Tie that perfect bow tie


Have you ever wondered how people got that bow tie just right? So neat and tidy. Well keep reading and I'll let you know how!
Me personally I'm definitely a bow tie kind of guy, I don't like wearing long ties, they just aren't my style. (Plus on top of that it took me forever to learn how to actually tie one) That being said let hop right in!


Step 1:
Start with the bow tie lying face up. Adjust the bow tie so that the right side is longer than the left side. Lets make this easier and refer to the end on the left as A and the end on the right will be B.
Step 2: Movie A to the right side across B.
Step 3: Bring A under B and up through the neck top.
Step 4: At the joint, fold B towards the right and then towards the left to create the bow tie shape.
Step 5: Bring A straight down over the middle of the bow shape that was made by B.
Step 6: Fold A back towards the chest and pinch the fold.
Step 7: Plush the pinched end (A) through the loop behind B.
Step 8: Pull on the folded parts of the bow tie to tighten them.
Step 9: Last step is to adjust until its pretty balanced on both sides.
BOOM! You're all good to go! Quick, simple, and you look great. Hope this helps out all the gents out there. With graduations, weddings, and all the formal events happening this time of year, you must know how to tie a tie.
