How to Tie the Windsor Knot


About the Windsor Knot

Although the Duke of Windsor never specifically used the Windsor knot, he did favor a wide triangular knot. In actuality, the Duke achieved his trendsetting look by tying a Four-in-Hand with specially made wide and extra thick ties. The Windsor knot was invented by the public as a way to imitate the Duke's knot style. There are several derivatives of the Windsor that are all referred to by the same name. The Windsor delivers a symmetrical and solid triangular knot that works best with a spread collar. This knot is also mistakenly referred to as the “Double Windsor” knot.

The Windsor Knot Tying Instructions

  • 1. 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.
  • 2. Wide end over the small end to the left.
  • 3. Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  • 4. Down to the left.
  • 5. Around the back of the small end to the right.
  • 6. Up to the center, towards neck loop.
  • 7. Through the neck loop and down to the right.
  • 8. Across the front to the left.
  • 9. Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  • 10. Down through the loop you've just created in the front.
  • 11. Tighten the knot by pulling down on the wide end. Slide the knot up & adjust.
