The Half Windsor Knot

The Half Windsor Knot is just that. It is a slightly smaller version of the Windsor Knot, or Full Windsor. It is nicely symmetrical and can be used with any type of dress shirt. It works well with wider ties that have slightly lighter fabric than your heavy ties.

Step-by-Step Instructions How to Tie a Half Windsor Knot

To tie the Half Windsor Knot, select a necktie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below:

1) Start with the wide end ("W") of your necktie on the right, extending about 12 inches below the narrow end ("N") on the left.

2) Then cross the wide end over the narrow end.

3) Bring the wide end around and behind the narrow end.

4) Then bring the wide end up.

5) Pull the wide end through the loop and to the right.

6) Bring the wide end around front, over the narrow end from right to left.

7) Again, bring the wide end up and through the loop.

8) Then, bring the wide end down through the knot in front.

9) And -- using both hands -- tighten the knot carefully and draw it up to the collar.

And presto! You've just tied a perfect half windsor knot! Just practice a bit more and you will have a great knot to use forever.
