Best Tie Knot - Full Windsor

I myself wear a cravat a lot, because I think it's a traditional way to dress smartly. Naturally, I recommend it to anyone who wants to dress a little more stylishly.

A tie is a classic accessory that everyone is sure to associate with stylish clothing. Even today, a tie is still festively worn on the best holidays. A tie really crowns an outfit like an outfit. When worn with a suit, a tie adds the finishing touch to a party, but a tie works perfectly to bring a touch of classicism to a casual outfit as well when worn with a jacket or waistcoat.

In my opinion, the best tie knot suitable for everyday use is the so-called Full Windsor or French knot. The knot is symmetrical, which I like the most. In addition, it is well suited for open collars and narrower ties.

The photo above shows the full Windsor or French tie knot on my neck as I write this.

Full Windsor, easy and fast

1. Place the wide end of the tie on the left side, wrong side facing the neck.
2. Measure the short and long parts so that the long part is about twice the length of the short, i.e. narrower side.
3. Only move the wide end when tying the tie. Start tying the knot by bringing the wide end over the narrow side to the right.
4. Pull the wide end from the bottom through the formed loop.
5. Take the wide end down to the left.
6. Turn the wide end to the left below the knot. The wide side of the tie is now inside out.
7. Take the wide end up.
8. Take the wide end of the loop through to the right. The end of the tie is now inside out.
9. Take the wide end over the narrow end to the left.
10. Take the tie up, from the back of the knot.
11. Bring the wide end down from the front of the knot and thread it through the loop you just made.
12. Tighten the tie.

If and when reading the instructions is more difficult to understand, I embedded the following video from Youtube (in English) here.
