The bowtie is an irreplaceable part of men's fashion, whether as a mark of sophistication, intellect, or even whimsy. Learning to tie a bowtie can be challenging; it's certainly a tougher knot to learn than the most common necktie knots such as the four-in-hand or windsor knots, but here at Krisar Clothing we know you're up to the challenge. We've put together a series of helpful illustrations that will teach you how to tie that knot like a pro and graduate from clip-on bowties to self-tie bowties.
Begin with the tie around your neck, draped on the front of your shirt with the left-hand side slightly longer.
Take the right hand side of the tie and pinch it back across the front, revealing the main bow shape.
Now take the longer left-hand side and bring it straight up across the middle of the bow shape formed by the right-hand side.
Wrap the longer side down behind the bow, forming a complete loop around the center of the bow.
Now, mirroring the bow shape you made in step 2, fold the long side back on itself to form a second bow shape.
Feed the new bow shape back through the loop until it is centered within the loop.
Tug the knot to tighten the loop once it's centered on both bow shapes.
