    the side of your dominant hand. So if you're right-handed, the wider end should behanging on your right side. If you're left-handed,the wider end should be hanging onyour left side.

    Pull the wide end of the tie under the loop around your neck.

    Pull the wide end down through the knot at the front of the tie.

    Tighten the knot by sliding it up the narrow end. Make sure your tie is straightand the length is appropriate.

    The four-in-hand knot is a little asymmetrical at the neck. Don't worry aboutthis; it is normal.Many men with shorter necks prefer the four-in-hand, because the knot at topis very narrow and has a slimming effect on the rest of the neck.

    Choose the Half Windsor as an alternative to the Four-in-Hand method oftying a tie. The knot is bigger, resembles a triangle, and is considered to be more

    distinguished than the four-in-hand (but not as distinguished as the full Windsor). Most

    men tend to prefer the half Windsor because it isn't as bulky to wear.[1]

    Place the tie around your neck with the wide side on the right side of yourbody. Adjust the tie so that the length of the wide side is about three times the

    length of the narrow side.

    You may need to experiment with this step to achieve the right length for thesides of the ties. Some people prefer having the wide side about 12 inchesbelow the narrow side.

    Cross the wide side of the tie over the narrow side.

    Bring the wide side around and under the narrow side.

    Take the wide side over the loop around the neck. Tighten a bit.

    Bring the wide side over the narrow side, out front, moving from right to left.

    Slide the wide side up through the loop around your neck.

    Bring the wide side through the knot in the front.

    Tighten a bit and shape the knot into a triangle shape. You want your knot tolook a bit wider than the Four-in-Hand knot.

    Tighten the tie around your collar by pulling on the narrow side of the tie(which should now be hidden underneath the wide side of the tie). If your

    tie has a loop underneath the wide side of the tie, you may slide the narrow sidethrough that loop to prevent it from "peeking" from behind the wide side of the tie.

    Choose the traditional Windsor knot as a more formal alternative to the HalfWindsor. The Duke of Windsor started the trend for this knot back in the 1930s. It

    has remained popular to this day because it projects a statement that suggests thewearer is elegant and has confidence. It's more dignified than the Four-in-Hand knot,

    but a little harder to tie. This knot should be worn with a spread collar.[2]

    Put the tie around your neck. One end should be considerably wider than theother. Make sure the wider end is on the right, and about a foot (30cm) lower than

    the thinner side on the left.

    Cross the wide end over the narrow end.

    Bring your tie up through the loop.

    Bring your tie back down. The wide end should be resting to the left of thenarrow end.

    Pull the wide end underneath the narrow end and to the right.

    Pull the wide end through the loop, this time on the right side. The wide endshould now be inside out.

    Cross the wide end over the thin end again, from right to left.

    Bring the wide end under the loop.

    Fold the wide end through the loop and into the knot at the front of thetie.

    Tighten the knot into a triangle using both hands. Slowly tighten the narrowend to bring the tie closer to the neck.

    For a more modern, fashionable and casual look, make the knot a good fewinches or centimeters down below the collar. For all formal occasions, however,keep the knot at the traditional distance away from the collar.

    Make a mnemonic device to help you remember, such as the wordOuat, which is an acronym for over, under, around and through.

    In general, the wide end of the tie should hang twice as low as thenarrow end.

    Look in a mirror while doing this.

    To make a dimple, hold the top blade on both edges and then pull itdown gently until the top blade starts to tighten. A slight convex shouldappear close to the knot. Use your thumb and forefinger to press thebottom of the knot into a V-shape and the convex will deepen to formthe dimple.

    There are different types of knots you can tie, some of which are moreappropriate to formal occasions (like the Windsor knot), while othersare casual.

    Try exploring with different sizes to get the hang of it.
