The Windsor knot is named after our most famous patron, the Duke of Windsor, as he opted to tie his knot in a manner that was wide and triangular. Best worn with a Windsor collar, the Windsor knot is considered to be more comfortable and relaxed than other knots and will hold a tie firmly in place while still keeping space between the collar and neck.
Place the tie around your neck and allow the wide end of the tie to extend approximately 12 inches lower than the narrow end.
Cross the wide end of the tie over the narrow end and bring it up through the loop.
Carry the wide end down, around and behind the narrow end and up on your right.
Then pull it through the loop and around across the narrow end.
Turn and pass the wide end up through the loop.
Finally complete the knot by slipping the wide end through the loop that you created. Tighten the knot and draw it up snuggly to the collar.
