Thanks for watching. -- TRANSCRIPT Hi there, I’m going to show you one of the most popular ways to tie a tie – using the Windsor knot – also known as the Double Windsor or the Full Windsor. Start with your collar up and the tie around your neck. If you are right handed, hold the wide end of the tie in your right hand and the narrow end of the tie in your left hand. Now, it is important to remember that the longer you make the wide end, the lower the tie will hang when you are finished. Basically, you want to line up your tie like this. If you remember this, you will save yourself a lot of time later on. Now cross each end over – wide end over the top – and leave about this much on the narrow end. That is about four inches or ten centimetres. With your left hand, take the wide end of the tie. Thread it through the back of this opening from behind. Thread it all the way through, like this. Now take the wide end of the tie, and with your left hand, wrap it all the way around the back like this. Switch hands. Notice here how the back of the tie is facing outward. Taking the wide end, now, in your right hand, thread it through the front of this opening. Alright! The hardest part is now done; the rest is easy! What you can see here is the inside of your knot. It should look a bit like a triangle. Put your left index finger on the knot, like this, and keep it there. With your other hand, wrap the wide end around the knot, from right to left – and then grab it from behind. Keep your index finger where it is. With your right hand, push the wide end through this opening again – from the back. Alright, here comes the punch-line! Your index finger has created a little tunnel. What you need to do now is thread the tie down through the tunnel. The last step now is to adjust and tighten it – alternating between the long end and the short end of the tie – gradually pulling the knot up – shaping it as you go – until the tie is just how you want it to be – a sharp, symmetrical, triangular knot. Pull your collar down – and bingo! – a full Windsor knot. Thank you for watching. I hope you found this helpful. -- Music: Strut Funk by Dougie Wood (Source: YouTube Audio Library)

When you think of a classic knot, most likely you’re thinking of the Double Windsor. This knot is best paired with dress shirts with a nice wide collar. If you have ties that are a bit longer than what you usually opt for, this is a perfect knot to try as it does require a little bit of length. The Double Windsor is considered the most iconic knot for your favorite necktie. Named after the Duke of Windsor, who liked his knots wide with thick cloth, it is the most popular of the four major knots widely used by most people today. Check out our latest video on Youtube - Mynicetie.com’s Double Windsor Knot. The Double Windsor is one of our favorite knots to teach. It’s a quick and easy knot that is symmetrical, classic, and looks fantastic with a myriad of styles.
