Hello. My name is Brendon Johnson, and I will show you how to tie a
tie. At first sight it may seem more complicated and time-consuming
than nuclear physics, but as soon as you understand the basics it
becomes merely a matter of practice. Believe me, it is much easier
than learning to ride a bike or tying a shoelace.
I will demonstrate how to tie a Windsor knot. It is "a thick, wide and
triangular tie knot that projects confidence", "your knot of choice
for presentations, job interviews, courtroom appearances", "best
suited for spread collar shirts" (4). In fact, making it is not tricky
at all. Everybody can make a Windsor knot on his tie; however, it is
highly recommended for men with a long neck, for the wide knot will
visually diminish the height of the neck and thus balance the
What do we need for tying a Windsor knot? Let us start from the
essentials. To succeed in our goal you need three things: a tie, a
mirror and motivation. It is highly desirable that you wear a suit or
at least a shirt, for a tie was initially designed to conceal the
buttons on a shirt, so that you will vividly see why a tie is
necessary, and how long it should be. So, ensure that you have all the
essentials, stand in front of a mirror, place the tie on you neck and
follow the instructions.
The process itself falls into four simple steps (please refer to the
diagram on the blackboard).
1. Ensure that the wide end is approximately 30 cm lower than the
narrow end and cross the wide end over the narrow one. This will
create a loop between the collar and your will-be tie. Pass the wide
end through this loop and then down. So the wide end will again be on
top of the narrow one.
Here is the result - a perfectly tied Windsor knot. As we can see by
now, tying a tie is much easier than nuclear physics, and not
time-consuming at all. With a tie, a mirror and proper motivation it
took us two minutes to accomplish the task according to the
instructions. If you practice for a couple of times, you will be able
to bring the time required to less than half a minute. From now on you
know the secret, and you are welcome to use it for the benefit of your
2. Put the wide end under the narrow one; pull it to the left and
across the top of the narrow end. By this time the wide end should
encircle the narrow one, forming the first outline of a knot. The wide
end should be located to the right of the knot.
3. Put the wide end beneath the narrow one again, then between
the collar and the knot, and afterwards push it through the loop.
4. Finally, push the wide end through the knot. Next, hold the
knot with your left hand, while adjusting the ends of your tie and
pushing the knot to the collar.
