Drape the tie around your neck, with the wide end hanging on the right side and the narrow end on the left. The wide end should hang about 12 inches lower than the narrow end.
Cross the wide end over the narrow end, forming an X shape.
Bring the wide end up and behind the narrow end, then bring it back down through the loop in the front.
Hold the front of the knot with your non-dominant hand and use your dominant hand to bring the wide end across the front of the knot and tuck it into the loop you just made.
Hold the knot in place with your non-dominant hand and use your dominant hand to tighten the knot by pulling on the narrow end. Adjust the knot to your desired tightness and position.
And that’s it! You’ve just tied a perfect knot like a gentleman. With a little practice, you’ll be able to tie a tie in no time at all.
