What is the Windsor knot?

The Windsor knot was invented by the public as a way to imitate the Duke of Windsors wide triangular knot style.

The Windsor delivers a symmetrical and solid triangular knot that works best with a spread collar.

How to tie a Windsor knot?

According to Ties.com, here are some simple steps to achieve the perfect Windsor knot:

  • Start with the wide end of the tie on the right and the small end on the left. The tip of the small end should rest slightly above your belly-button (this will vary depending on your height and the length & thickness of your tie). Only move the active (wide) end.
  • Wide end over the small end to the left.
  • Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  • Down to the left.
  • Around the back of the small end to the right.
  • Up to the center, towards neck loop.
  • Through the neck loop and down to the right.
  • Across the front to the left.
  • Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  • Down through the loop youve just created in the front.
  • Tighten the knot by pulling down on the wide end. Slide the knot up & adjust.
