There are many different ways to tie a tie. Some of them are very difficult and require special dexterity, some are simple to perform and are suitable even for beginners. One of the most popular ways to tie a tie is a simple knot, sometimes referred to as Italian, quarter or four.
Take a tie and tie it around your neck so that the wide end is on the left. The tie must be tied on the front side, so it should be placed with the wrong side facing you. Please note that the wide end of the tie must be slightly longer than the narrow one, otherwise after tying the wide part will be too short and the knot will have to be redone.
Pull the wide part of the tie to the left, and the narrow part to the right, thus forming a cross. In this case, the wide end of the tie should be positioned over the narrow one.
Take the wide end of the tie and pull it to the right under the narrow end. Thus, one part of the tie will seem to wrap around the other, forming neck loops.
Again, slide the wide end of the tie over the narrow end. In this case, the wide part should move to the left, thus creating the next turn. Do not tighten the tie, make light, loose neck loops.
Now you need to thread the wide part of the tie through the resulting neck loop from the inside. If the loop is too narrow and you cannot thread the wide end of the tie through, loosen the loops you made earlier. Please note that the wide part of the tie, after being threaded into the neck loop, should be directed upwards, with the right side facing you, and the wrong side out.
Take the widest part of the tie and lower it down, threading it into the formed neck loop from the outside. The wide end of the tie should completely cover the narrow end. Make sure the tie is tied on the front and not on the wrong side.
Tighten the loop and shape it while gently straightening the tie. Make sure the wide end of the tie is over the narrow end, completely covering it. If the narrow part is longer than the wide one, redo the knot. A simple knot is ready!
