How to Easily Tie a Tie By Yourself

Step 1 Step 2 Step 3
  • 1. Begin with the wide end of the tie on the right and the small end on the left. The small end should rest slightly above your belly-button (will vary based on your height and the length & thickness of your tie). Only move the active (wide) end.
  • 2. Bring the wide end over the small end to the left
  • 3. Under the small end and to the right
  • 4. Move it across the front and to the left
  • 5. Up into the neck loop from underneath
  • 6. Now, bring it down through the loop you've just made in the front
  • 7. Tighten by pulling down on the wide end and sliding the knot upward. Adjust and add a dimple if you desire.
