How to Tie a Bow Tie

2015-05-19



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.

STEP 1: PREPARE YOUR BOW TIE

Start with one end in your right hand, extending approximately one and a half inches below that of the one in your left.

STEP 2: CROSS OVER

Cross the longer end over the shorter one and pass up through the loop. Rest the long end over your shoulder.

STEP 3: FIRST LOOP

To form the front loop of the bow, double up the shorter end, placing across the collar and hold in place with your forefinger.

STEP 4: SECOND LOOP

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.

STEP 5: THROUGH THE LOOP

Take the top of the hanging piece of tie and thread it through the loop created in the back.

STEP 6: KNOT AND TIGHTEN

Once through, even out the ends and tighten.
