Hello. I'm Charles from Louis Purple, and today I'm going to teach you how to tie a Windsor knot. The Windsor knot is actually a very simple knot to tie, and it's very useful because it projects confidence. So it's a wide, triangular knot that's very suitable for presentations, job interviews, or cultural appearances, which I hope you don't frequent too often. So this is how you start.

You just find the right balance depending on the length of your tie, with the wide end on the right hand side and the narrow end on the left. You might want to adjust exactly where the center of the tie should be at in the middle of your neck. So this is how you start. You cross over the wide end over the narrow end. You bring the wide end through the loop between the collar and the tie. And you bring the wide end back down.

Then you just pull the wide end underneath, and then bring it up through the loop again in order to have a symmetrical shape, which should look like this. And you're almost done. There's only the easy part left and the most rewarding. Pull the wide end in front. Bring the wide end underneath, and then slide it inside the loop and tie it in the knot. You draw the knot up in order to fit your collar. So it's a knot that's really suitable for widespread collars. And as I said, then you can just adjust and tighten how big of a knot you like to obtain. This is how you tie a Windsor knot.

    Jennifer Menth - PaVel 1 месяц назад Im here because my son's father is gone. I am reluctant to believe that any parent does not love their child. Some ppl come into this world and get damaged somehow, by a parent or someone else significant and some wounds never heal. Especially the ones beneath the skin that nobody can see. Children are so beautiful, they are the most wonderful thing this world has to offer. Every child is the embodiment of two ppl, who even if for just a whisper of a moment in time, shared, a miraculous event. A new little person against all odds. Your father's love you but they are too broken and battered to know it. When I pray for my son tonight I will pray for all of you to believe that because I believe!!! Sweet dreams to all the miracles who don't believe. 😘😊💖

    Panda Express and Sprite 4 недели назад (изменено) (don't actually, this is a joke) Let's learn how to tie a noose, It's easy if you're not obtuse, All you need is a piece of rope, And abandon all your hope, You make a loop and the snake goes down, But changes his mind and turns around, And climbs back up to the top again, This is where the fun begins, You take the snake and spiral down, And at the bottom, What has he found? The snake goes into the rabbit's hole, Then you give the top a pull, Now it's ready for your use, This is how you tie a noose.

    Steven DeCesare 3 года назад I'm a high school English teacher, and I swear that sometimes I want to bring in ties for everyone just so that I can teach them how to properly tie a necktie. Even the girls... (They may have sons one day.) It would take 15 minutes and I think they'd be better for it.

  • Steven DeCesare
    Steven DeCesare 3 года назад @LagrangePoint It's not easy. I've done it a million times, and even still, there are times when it takes me more than twice to get it right. Personally, I don't LIKE ties. I love dressing nicely, but I've always felt like the tie was too stodgy. I feel like a real nice button-down with a subtle pattern, perhaps, without a tie and the top button unbuttoned is very modern. The outfit feels very much complete to me without the tie. But... There are times when the tie is expected. So, you've got to learn to tie a tie properly!

    Andrew Castagno Год назад Funny, I like ties because they're often the splash of personality and color in an otherwise fairly uniform black suit and dress shirt combo. I like riding that line of keeping it classy enough while still being eye catching at a formal event. That being said, you definitely can get away with the nice button down at most events these days, I know a few guys who really pull that look off. I'm usually dressed casually so when I get the chance to dress nicely, I like really dressing up.
