How To Tie a Tie
Most of the ties that we do sell on tuxedosonline.com are pre-tied neckties and bow ties, but we also sell ties that you tie yourself. I'd like to show you how to tie a tie. Basically, each of our ties and all ties that you buy have a seam in the tie. That is usually where you would start so that you make it a proper height for yourself.
You put one thin portion below the thick portion. Take it around and over. Once you take it around and over that's your first step.
Now, your challenge is to make this a nice triangle. The nicer this triangle, the nicer your tie is going to be. Then you put the big portion over the triangle and you loop this over it and put the top portion inside. Once you do that, all you need to do is pull it in order to make it a tie in the shape that you want. Then of course, put your collar down and adjust it to what you want. We suggest to make it a little more formal, to use a tie clip or tie tack. A tie clip is used at this level to hold down the tie.
