  1. Drape the necktie around your collar with the seam outward and the thick end on your left, 4-5 inches lower than your desired finishing position.
  2. Cross the thick end underneath the thin end, forming an X.
  3. Wrap the thick end across the front of the thin end, going horizontally from right to left.
  4. Then wrap the thick end from left to right behind the thin end.

  6. Slip the thick end of the tie under the loop around your collar.
  7. Flip the thick end down and let it hang in front of the knot. Keep using your finger to hold the band in place.
  8. Wrap the thick end behind the knot from right to left.
  9. Wrap the thick end around the front of the knot from left to right and insert a finger under the horizontal band you've created.
  10. Bring the thick end through the loop around your collar from underneath.
  11. Feed the thick end down through the horizontal band, snug it down and tease the corners of the knot out into an even shape.
