- •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.
- •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.

- •Bring your tie back down.The wide end should be resting to the left of the narrow end.
- •Pull the wide end underneath the narrow end and to the right.
- •Pull the wide end through the loop, this time on the right side.The wide end should now be inside out.
- •Cross the wide end over the thin end again, from right to left.

For all formal occasions, however, keep the knot at the traditional distance away from the collar.
