After draping the tie over your collar, adjust the tie pieces on each side so that the smaller piece sits about 1 inch above your belly button.
Grasp each piece of the tie with your index finger, middle finger, and thumb.
Take each tie piece with the opposite-side hand and cross it over, so that the tie crosses a few inches below the collar neck-line.
Pinch together the two pieces where they cross with one hand.
With the other hand, tuck the large tie piece behind the small piece so that it begins to wrap around the small piece.
Finish wrapping the large piece over the small piece, re-pinching the tie to include the large piece.
Here's the trickiest part: - Keep the tie pinched during this step; - Continue wrapping the large tie piece up and through the neck loop (as shown); - When pushed through completely and fallen, the front of the tie should face away from you.
You can loosen your grip some on the pinched knot.
Keeping the tie facing forward, grab and push the tip of the tie down through the knot. Be sure the tie goes down in front of the hanging smaller piece but behind the front of the knot.
Pull the tie down completely through the knot.
Adjust the tie by moving it around your collar as you pull on the large piece of the tie to tighten the knot.
And you're all set and hopefully looking sharp!
