Bow Tie Knot

The Bow Tie Knot is used to tie a bow tie and is worn to give you a formal and elegant appearance. A "black tie occasion" such as a wedding, or formal fundraiser are events that you would commonly wear a bow tie to, along with a tuxedo, not a typical suit.

The proper size should never be broader than the widest part of your neck and should never extend past the tips of the shirt collar.

To tie a Bow Tie Knot, stand in front of a mirror with your collar up, and your bow tie around your neck as shown, then simply follow the seven steps below:

(Typically, your collar should be up to allow ease of maneuvering, and to prevent creases in your tie while tying the bow tie knot. Diagrams are with collar down for illustration purposes.)

THIS IS NOT YOUR MIRROR IMAGE

1. Start by placing the bow tie around your neck, so that end A is about two inches longer than end B.

2. Carry end A up over top of and across end B.

4. Now fold end B over itself (about 4 - 5 inches from the end) to start forming the 'bow' that will appear.

5. Next, carry end A down over the center of the fold in B you just formed.

Keep practicing the Bow Tie Knot a few more times until you can tie it quickly, neatly, and without reading these directions!!

If these directions are not clear enough for you, or if you'd like to pass this knowledge onto someone who you love (and you feel needs it!), CLICK HERE to see samples of a VIDEO showing how to tie the Bow Tie Knot.

Good Luck!
