How to tie a double Windsor knot

The Windsor knot was created by the Duke of Windsor, who tied his knot in a knot that was wide and triangular. According to Anchor Neckware, the Windsor knot looks "best worn with a wide collar or spread collar." The knot can be tied by using any width tie and will look both stylish as well as relaxed and comfortable. Tie your neck-tie in the Windsor knot.

Over and to the left

- Put your tie around your neck and tuck it under your collar. Pull the wide end of the tie so that it hangs lower than the thinner end. - Grasp the thicker end of the tie and cross it over and to the left, keeping the thinner end hanging straight down.

Through the rabbit hole

- Bring the thick end of the tie to the left and then, up through the point where the ends of the ties cross at your neck. - Bring the thick end of the tie down to the left of the thin end and then, behind the thin end and to the right. - Bring the thick end of the tie to the left, on top of the thin end and again, up through the point where the tie ends cross at your neck.

Finish the knot

- Bring the thick end of the tie down through the loop at the front of the thin end of the tie. - Pull the thick end down and push the horizontal portion of the knot back up toward your neck. Tips: - When you are tying the double Windsor knot, keep the short end of the tie shorter than the wide end. The higher the short end hangs, the longer your tie will hang when you have finished tying the knot. - Add additional detail to the knot by adjusting the fabric of the tie directly beneath the knot. You can make the tie smooth by having both sides curve downwards towards your shirt. - Create two dimples by leaving the middle curve downward. Bring the edges of the sides up, just beneath the knot so that there are two dimples on either side of the curved middle. The effect will resemble a "w". - Release the knot by easing the horizontal portion downward. This will loosen the knot enough so that you can slip the entire tie up and over your head.
