Half Windsor Knot

The Half Windsor Knot is a simpler, more modest version of the Full Windsor Knot, and is a symmetrical, triangular tie knot that you can wear with any dress shirt. It works best with wider ties made from light to medium weight materials.

It is best suited for more casual, less confrontational settings where modern style is more important than being as aggressive as the Full Windsor Knot is.

To tie the Half Windsor Knot, stand in front of a mirror with your collar up, and your tie around your neck as shown, then simply follow the eight steps below:

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

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