How To Tie A Full Windsor Knot

Fashion tips include what to wear and what not to wear, but also how to do certain things. Tying ties is definitely one of those things. The Windsor knot, or full Windsor knot, is a classic of knots in neckties. The knot comes out wider with a triangular look moving down the length of the tie. Men with longer necks look especially good in this tie because it hides the neck length a bit.

Let’s take a look at the steps involved in tying this knot:

1. Start with the wide end of the tie on the right side, and the thinner end on the left. You will want the right side to be about double the length of the narrow side. That is, the wider side should be much farther down on your body. How much farther down will depend on your own build and where you want the tie to sit.

2. Cross the wide end of the tie over the narrow end of the tie and bring the wide end up through the loop you just created.

3. Pull the wide end down over top of the loop, and then pull it to the right so that you see the back of the wide end of the tie.

4. Pull the wide end of the tie over, across your body to form a loop on top of the loop you already have and up through the loop from the bottom.

5. Bring the wide end of the tie down through the loop you just created. You’ve now completed your tie, all that’s left is to tighten it. Tighten with both hands, one on the knot (loop) itself and one pulling the tie down. Be careful at this point to make sure you don’t crinkle the tie.

Through most of these steps, you will want the tension around the loop to be tight. Again, make sure it is not too tie that you will end up with a crinkled tie. The end result you’re looking for is a tight, solid looking knot.
