Learn to Tie a Bow Tie

Did you know that only 1% of adult men know how to tie their own bow ties? After we learned this astonishing fact, we thought it would be time to create the ultimate bow tie tying guide. The instructions above will show you how to tie your bow tie in 9 simple steps. In case you need some more detail, here is some more information on each of the 9 steps shown above:

Step #1:
Lay the bow tie around your neck with one side hanging about 4 inches lower than the other.

Step #2:
Create a half knot using the longer side of the bow tie. Just like you do when tying your shoes.

Step #3:
Fold the shorter half of the bow tie over to create a symmetrical looking bow.

Step #4:
Pull the longer end of the bow tie over the bow you created in the previous step.

Step #5:
Pull the longer end down. Then pinch both ends of the half bow together and pull forward away from your body.

Step #6:
Pull the half bow tie to the side while pulling forward. You will be able to see a loop behind this half bow.

Step #7:
Pull the longer end of the bow tie through this loop. Make sure to only pull half of the long end through.

Step #8:
Pull the bow tie tight by putting a finger in each side of the loop. Then pull away from each other to spread the bow tie.

Step #9:
Pull down your collar and center the bow tie.
