  1. Choose the traditional Windsor knot as a more formal alternative to the Half Windsor.

    The Duke of Windsor started the trend for this knot back in the 1930s. It has remained popular to this day because it projects a statement that suggests the wearer is elegant and has confidence. It's more dignified than the Four-in-Hand knot, but a little harder to tie. This knot should be worn with a spread collar.
  2. Put the tie around your neck.

    One end should be considerably wider than the other. Make sure the wider end is on the right, and about a foot (30cm) lower than the thinner side on the left.
  3. Cross the wide end over the narrow end.

    Slowly tighten the narrow end to bring the tie closer to the neck. For a more modern, fashionable and casual look, make the knot a good few inches or centimeters down below the collar. For all formal occasions, however, keep the knot at the traditional distance away from the collar.
