Pre-tied bow ties are handy if you tend to turn into a bundle of nerves preparing for a big event. They take the guesswork out of smart dressing so you don’t need to recall which side folds over and which loops under. The style typically features a square-shaped clasp that slides across the strap to adjust fit. One end of the strap is adorned with a claw-shaped clip and the other an opening to place it in. Add a pre-tied bow tie to your wardrobe to look party ready without the stress.

Pull on your collared shirt and button it to the top.

Wrap the tie around the back of your neck. Position the bow directly under your chin, and pull the adjustable strap until the end is aligned with the center of the bow. This will adjust the tie to your neck size.

Pull the clasp across the strap of your tie until it sits where your index finger and thumb are.

Place the clip at the end of the tie strap into the adjoining end that sits behind the bow. The two-pronged clip will fit within the end piece entirely.

Adjust the strap further if necessary by pulling the clasp at the back of your collar to the left. Flip your collar down over the strap.

How to Put on a Bow Tie

Tying a bow tie is very similar to tying shoelaces. It only takes a
minute to tie the knot once you are familiar with the process.
Although a bow tie can be fashioned from a regular-length necktie, the
end result will not look quite as sharp as it would if you use a real
bow tie.Difficulty:Moderately ChallengingInstructions Things You’ll

A bow-tie curtain tieback is used to hold center tie fixed curtains in
a partially open position. The tieback wraps around the center of the
curtain and attaches with Velcro or a snap fastener to the underside
of the bow. Usually, this type of bow tieback is changed seasonally to
make French doors and fixed windows look festive. Bow-ties range from
small size for narrow side-light windows to large bows for French door
style windows. Side Light WindowsMany homes have narrow fixed
windows next to the front door. Often these windows are dressed with

The bow tie has been much maligned over the years. Viewed as a status
symbol by some; an abomination by others. From formal black tie events
to «Revenge of the Nerds,» bow ties truly possess a Jekyll and Hyde
personality. Whether dressing to the nines or simply adding a
flamboyant touch to your favorite collared shirt, wearing a bow tie is
sure to draw attention. There are numerous clip-on styles available,

Fox hunting and horse shows are two examples of formal equestrian
events that require a jockey or rider to wear a stock tie fastened
with a pin. The standard stock tie is useful in fox hunting because it
may be removed and used as a bandage, sling, tourniquet or headlight
reflector. A pre-tied stock tie saves time and the many steps involved

Neckties, in one form or another, have been in use since the 1600s. It
is believed that they were first worn by mercenary soldiers. Soon,
neckties were a popular fashion accessory all over Europe. Today,
neckties are available in just about any color and pattern imaginable.
Neckties offer many choices apart from the standard tie, such as
pre-tied ties, bow ties and clip on ties. A common problem with
pre-tied ties is that they easily become untied, posing a problem to
those who do not know how to tie them properly. You can easily re-tie

How to Put On a Clip-on Tie

The instructions for putting on a clip-on tie are right there in the name — simply clip it right to your shirt. The process varies a bit depending on whether you sport a single-clipped neck tie or a double-clipped bow tie. Once you secure the tie to your collar, this no-hassle fashion accessory doesn’t require any sort of adjustment and breaks away easily when needed, making it a preferred choice for active professionals such as police officers and security guards, in particular.

No-Hassle Neck Ties

Choose a tie of the proper length — clip-on styles are not adjustable, so it’s essential to buy the right one from the get-go. When held up to your collar, the bottom tip of the tie should fall at the top of your belt buckle or the waistband of your pants.

Button your collared shirt up to the top button. Open the clip-on’s lever-style clasp by pushing the lever upward.

Place the tie’s knot at your shirt’s top button, right in the center of your neck between the two parts of the collar, so that the clasp hangs over the shirt.

Press the lever down. It snaps into place over the tie clasp’s button, securing the tie in place until you give it a gentle upward tug.

Go With the Bow

Fold the two sides of the bow tie outward, using the lever-like clasp on either side. This reveals two, prong-like metal clasps on either side of the knot, which are positioned horizontally when wearing the tie.

Button your collared dress shirt all the way up to the top button. Position the bow tie so that the knot rests directly between the two parts of your collar.

Slide one clasp over the left or right side of the collar, so that the collar is in-between the two prongs. Slide the opposing clasp over the other side of the collar.

Press each side of the bow tie down, securing the clasps onto the collar. You may need to slide the clasps up or down on either side of the collar to make sure your tie is level.

Tip
  • In some cases, clip-on neck ties don’t have lever-style clasps or buttons, they simply have a non-articulated clip. In this case, slip the clip over your top button and you’re good to go.

Easy Step by Step Guide [inc. Video]

So, you want to know how to tie a self-tie bow tie?

Firstly, good on you for wanting to tie your own. Once you get it, you probably won’t want to use pre-tied any longer. There’s just something about tying your own — in both how it looks and how it makes you feel wearing it. Knowing that when you get asked ‘did you tie that?’, you’ll be able to tell them (and show them) you did!

At the end of the night you can reveal you tied your own — untie and let it sit around the neck of your shirt.

But bow ties aren’t just for black tie events now. They are increasingly popular at weddings, worn by the Groom, Groomsmen as well as guests. Just look in at any fashion magazine’s wedding spreads and you’ll see bow ties.

Just like ties, they can be worn to work as well. They’re even practical for bar tenders and doctors because ties can get in the way of their work.

Sneaky trick to get that self-tie look without tying it yourself

 If you’re not concerned with tying your own bow tie but want that end of night untied bow tie look, do this:

Get a pre-tied and self-tie bow tie in the same design. When you want to have it hanging around your neck untied, pop to the loo and take off the pre-tied bow tie. Then put the self-tie around your neck. Ta-da! Now most people will think you tied your own.

However, some ‘in-the-know’ can spot a pre-tied bow tie. So it’s worth learning how to tie your own.

Just a couple of months ago I was where you are right now.

I couldn’t tie a bow tie and was watching video after video, because I just couldn’t get it right. In the end I had to use bits and pieces from various videos to understand what I had to do to tie a great looking bow tie.

Having finally got it, I realised most videos I watched glossed over or completely missed out the two most critical steps. So here I’m going to make sure you’re clear on every step — including the one most people I’ve spoken to get stuck on.

If you’ve struggled and spent ages trying to tie the perfect bow tie, I’m going to get you to do it. Step by step. 5 steps in fact.

If you have time, it’ll help to read through once without following along, so you have an idea of what’s coming next.

So, let’s get to it!


Important tying tip: 
Stand in front of a mirror — it’s much easier to do it this way

Step 1: Length

  • Too short and you won’t be able to create the bow.
  • Longer = bigger, wider bow.

So length actually effects the shape and size of the bow tie you create. Personally I like my bow, to be pretty small and narrow. No wider than my glasses. That means the length has to be short. But it’s a little trickier because everything is a lot tighter, so your tying needs to be on-point.

The takeaway point here is that it must be long enough so the narrow part of the bow tie (the neck band) must be able to cross over at the neck. See below.

Step 2. Tie The first knot

Unlike almost every other instructions I’ve seen, I’m not going to tell you to have one side lower than the other. It’s more important to get this next part right.

Get the right hand side of the bow tie and find the part where the neck band ends and the bow starts, basically the part where it starts to widen after the neck band.

Put the left side over the right side. Then put the left end under right, pull up and tighten so that the tip of the bow shape is just below the collar button.

Ensure the knot is lined up with the collar button, so it’s central.

It needs to be quite tight. If it’s too loose now, it’s difficult to tighten later, so make sure you have it as tight as is comfortable now.

At this point you should have the left side placed over your shoulder, a reasonably tight knot finishing just beyond the tip of the bow shape and the rest hanging down along the shirt buttons. Like this:

Step 3. Getting the bow tie shape

Place your right index finger behind the widest part (centre) of the right end of the tie (the part dangling down).

Bring up and turn horizontal. This forms the front of your bow tie.

Hold this with your thumb and forefinger. Thumb behind the middle of the bow shape and forefinger in front.

Now take the part you’ve got resting on your shoulder and bring it over the centre of the part you’re holding, where your forefinger is.

Step 4. tying the bow tie knot [First critical step]

When I first learnt to tie a bow tie, this is the part I got stuck on. So try not to rush it.

To make this final bow tie knot, keep your thumb behind what will be the front of your bow. Tight to the centre of your neck — by the collar button. And tighten the part hanging down over the front of it with your right hand.

Stick your thumb out the top of the loop slightly.

Now, you want to find the middle part (often the widest) of the piece in your right hand using your index finger.

Using your index finger, bring that piece up and behind the front of the bow you’re holding in your left hand.

With this finger find the thumb that you’re sticking out of the top of the loop in your left hand.

Now, using your thumb as a guide push through the top of the loop with your index finger (there’s only one side with a loop at the moment). Push it out the other side. This will form the loop on the other side. Don’t push it all the way through, ensure you keep the flat side on the left.

You should have a loose knot. It might not resemble a bow tie yet, or a poor bow tie. You might think you’ve gone wrong. Don’t give up just yet. If you can poke your finger through a loop on the left and right of the knot, you’re almost there.

Step 5. Adjustments. [Second critical and final step]  
Here comes The magic!

You can pull down your shirt collar at this stage.

Tidy up the loops of the bow tie by putting your finger through each one to straighten them out — particularly the one you just made in the previous step.

Now we need to tidy and tighten. Put your left index finger through the loop on the left and your right index finger through the loop on the right.

To tighten the bow tie knot, find the back of the right hand loop…

and the front of the left hand loop….

Now pull gently outwards making sure not to pull out the loose ends and spoil all your hard work!

To adjust the ‘flat’ sides of the bow tie (the loose ends) pull on the front of the loop or the loose ends themselves.

You’ll find you’ll need to alternate between tightening of the knot (pulling on the back of the right loop and the front of the left) and adjusting the loose ends (pulling on the loose ends themselves).
 
Do this until you’re happy with the result.

Finding Your Bow Tie Style

Now you can tie your own bow tie, you can experiment a bit. Play with the length to create larger or smaller bows, for example.

The ‘perfect bow tie’ is whatever you want it to be. It’s meant to be individual.

Show your personal style by choosing a bow tie design you like, in a shape you think will suit you. Wear it the way you like it. Wide. Narrow. Big knot. Small Knot. Wonky or Neat. It’s completely up to you.

That’s what’s so unique and endearing about a bow tie.

You should put the tie on so that the shorter end (based off where the metal piece is.) is on your left.

It’s time to close the yearbook and leave the pre-tied bow tie behind. Learn how to tie a bow tie in 10 easy steps.


You don’t need to know how to tie a bow tie until you do, and by then it’s too late. So take the five minutes it’ll take you to learn how to do it yourself and check “learn to tie a bow tie” off your to-do list.

Or don’t. The choice is yours. Are you going to be a man and learn to tie a self-tie bow tie, or be doomed to a life of pre-tied, clip-on, just-stepped-out-of-a-prom-limo nonsense? (Sorry to all our high school homies out there but learning to tie a bow tie separates the men from the boys.) So it’s your call. We’ll let you think it over…

…Alright so if you’re still with us, here’s the deal. Learning to tie a self-tie bow tie is not hard (actually, being the best dressed guy in the room is never hard if you subscribe to The Compass and read it regularly). It just takes a few tries to get the hang of it, like riding a bike. So slip on a dress shirt, get out your self-tie bow tie and give yourself a few practice runs following the instructions below. Then, when the time comes for you to look your best in black tie and put on a tuxedo/bow tie combo, you’ll be prepared.


  • Step 1: Start by aligning the bow tie around your neck so that one end is a couple of inches longer than the other.
  • Step 2: Cross the long end over the shorter end.
  • Step 3: Pull the longer end back up and under the shorter end and tighten to your neck.
  • *It’s important to note that you won’t be able to adjust the tightness of the knot of your bow tie like you do with a necktie after this knot is secured, so be sure this knot is properly adjusted.
  • Step 4: Leaving the long end out of the way, form the bow shape with the shorter end of the tie.
  • Step 5: Let the longer end fall over top of the center of the bow you just formed.
  • Step 6: Fold the remaining fabric from the long end of the tie into a bow shape that roughly matches the bow you’ve already formed.
  • Step 7: Slide the long end bow through the space between the short end bow and the knot against your neck.
  • Step 8: Tighten the bow by pulling both ends of the tie at the same time with equal force.
  • Step 9: Even out the tie and adjust the ends by carefully pulling the ends of the bow horizontally.
  • Step 10: Admire your work.
