Bow Tie Knot Tying

Cross the long end over the short. Then tuck it up under the short end and pull tight against the neck. Fold the short end into a half bow. Then bring the long end down in front of the half bow. Fold the long end into the second half bow and pass it behind behind the first one. Straighten and pull tight.

Bow Tie Knot Details

Orientation: The animation is presented as though the wearer were seeing his own reflection.

Structure: The Bow Tie is based on a Square (Reef) Knot and is the same as the bow commonly used on a Shoelace. It feels different and awkward to tie because of the nature of the material and the need to achieve a neat, symmetrical result.

Advantages: Typically perceived as more formal and elegant than other neckties.

Disadvantages: The Bow Tie is a more challenging knot to tie neatly.
