A bow tie can be worn with a classic or wing collar and can be spotted at many “black tie” events. We found easy instructions for creating a bow tie from our friends at Thomas Pink. As part of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy group, Thomas Pink is a leading luxury shirt brand that also offers ties, knitwear, accessories, and more.
Start with one end in your right hand, extending approximately one and a half inches below that of the one in your left.
Cross the longer end over the shorter one and pass up through the loop. Rest the long end over your shoulder.
To form the front loop of the bow, double up the shorter end, placing across the collar and hold in place with your forefinger.
Now, drop the long end down over the front. Snap the wide ends of the bow shut and lightly pull away. This should leave a loop in the back.
Take the top of the hanging piece of tie and thread it through the loop created in the back.
Once through, even out the ends and tighten.
