If you’re wondering how to tie a Full Windsor, that’s the same. Among the classic ways to tie a tie, Double Windsor is the nicest one. By looking pretty and elegant, learning how to make this knot can help you in getting ready for an official event. It is thick, so consider making it when you are about to wear a shirt with a wide collar.

Instructions:

  1. Put a tie under the collar of your shirt. For your convenience, leave two upper buttons unbuttoned too. Make the wider part longer and put it above the narrower one of a tie.
  2. Pass the wider part through the gap, so it will be stretched out parallel to your face.
  3. Now, displace the wider part – first to the left, and then to the right (under the small part).
  4. Again, move the wider part back in the same sequence – to the left (above the smaller end) and up.
  5. Insert the tie into the loop created in the front.
  6. Make the knot nice and comfortable!

In other words, it offers a freedom of choice for you in deciding an appropriate shirt for today!

Instructions:

  1. Start making a Double Windsor: put a tie around your neck under the collar. Cover the shorter narrower part on the left with the longer smaller part on the right side.
  2. Change the position of parts back by displacing the wider side under the narrower one.
  3. Put it up to the center and back to the left.
  4. Again change the position of the parts – but this time, displace the wide side above the narrower one.
  5. Now, you have a loop – so put the wider side up (parallel to your face) and insert it into the loop.
  6. Finally, the pleasant part – adjust the knot so you’ll feel comfortable wearing it all day long!
