How to Tie a Tie in Standard Windsor knot

Windsor knot is a classic, wide triangular knot named after the Duke of Windsor, who made it popular. It's a symmetrical and substantial knot that works well with spread-collar shirts and wide ties. Tying a tie can seem intimidating at first, but with a little practice, you'll find it's not too difficult. Here are step-by-step instructions for tying a standard Windsor knot, one of the most common tie knots,

1.Start with the wide end of the tie on your right and the narrow end on your left. The tip of the narrow end should rest slightly above your belly button.

2.Cross the wide end over the narrow end, forming an X, and then bring the wide end under the narrow end.

3.Pull the wide end up through the loop between the collar and your tie, bringing it down to the right.

4.Bring the wide end back across the front of the narrow end from right to left.

5.Pull the wide end up through the loop again, this time bringing it down through the knot you've formed in the front.

6.Hold the front of the knot with your index finger and bring the wide end down through the loop you've created in the front.

7.Adjust the knot by pulling on the wide end and sliding the knot up towards your collar. Tighten as needed until the knot is snug against your collar.

8.Adjust the length of the tie by holding the knot with one hand and pulling down on the narrow end with the other hand.

9.Tuck the narrow end of the tie behind the loop on the backside of the wide end to keep it in place.

10.Adjust the knot and collar as needed for a clean and polished look.

Remember, practice makes perfect! It may take a few tries to get the hang of it, but soon you'll be tying your tie with ease.
