  1. Drape the necktie around your collar with the seam facing inward and the thick end on your right, about a half an inch lower than you want the finished tie to hang.
  2. Cross the thin end over the thick end, forming an X. Then bring the thin end up through the loop you just formed, behind the X.
  3. Flip the thin end over the top of the knot.
  4. Bring the thin end behind the knot from left to right.
  5. Bring the thin end across the front from right to left.
  6. Bring the thin end behind the knot and up through the loop around your neck. This will leave a horizontal band across the front of the knot.
  7. Flip the thin end over the front of the knot so that it hangs down.
  8. Bring the thin end slightly to the left of the thick end, then fold it around behind the knot, passing from left to right.
  9. Bring the thin end up in front of the knot, pointing the tip upward and toward your left shoulder.
  10. Tuck the thin end through the loop around your collar, behind the rest of the knot and emerging on the left side of the thick end.
  11. Tug the thin end down firmly and take a moment to arrange the center of the knot. You want the diagonal legs to rise at the same angle, meeting squarely beneath your chin.
  12. Flip the thick forward and up. You can toss it over one shoulder.
  13. Turn the thin end point-upward and slip it through the single horizontal loop across the back of the knot.
  14. Pull the thin end all the way through the loop and snug it up tight.
  15. Flip the two ends of the tie back down.
  16. Tighten carefully by holding the knot in one hand while tugging on the thick end with your other.
