How to Tie Double Windsor Knot?
Now, let's get into the art of tying the double Windsor knot. Named after the Duke of Windsor, this knot is characterized by its large triangular shape, making it the ideal choice for wide-collared dress shirts.
Step 1: Drape the Tie
Begin by draping the DiBanGuStore's 100% silk necktie around your neck, ensuring the wide end is longer than the narrow end. Adjust the length so that the narrower end sits just above your ribcage and the wide end elegantly hangs by your belly button.
Step 2: Cross the Ends
Cross the wide end over the narrow end, forming an X. You have to hold the narrow end in place with your left hand, keeping the overlap close to your collar for a tight knot.
Step 3: Feed the Wide End Through the Neck Loop
Loop the wide end through the collar loop, bringing it up from underneath to start the knot. Now, pull it through the bottom of the neck loop and drape it back down over the top, forming one side of the knot.
Step 4: Wrap the Wide End Behind the Knot
Take the wide end behind the knot, using your left hand to hold it against the back of the knot. This step adds security and structure to the knot.
Feed the wide end through the top of the neck loop, creating a symmetrical cone shape on each side of the knot. Ensure the shapes are perfectly balanced for a polished look.
Step 5: Fold the Wide End Over the Front
Smooth out the tie, bringing the wide end from right to left across the front of the knot. Tighten the knot, holding it in place with your left hand, to prevent any slack.
Fold the wide end up through the bottom of the neck loop on the left side, pulling it completely through. Adjust the length to ensure the wide end reaches your waistband.
Step 6: Pull the Tie Through the Loop in Front of the Knot
Grab the wide end, ensuring its facing right-side up, and pull it through the space between the knot and the wrapped part of the tie. Tighten and adjust the length until comfortable.
Choosing the Right Tie Length
The Double Windsor Knot requires a bit more length to achieve its full, symmetrical glory. Taller men, in particular, should consider using XL-length ties from DiBanGuStore to ensure the knot looks proportionate and balanced. The overall effect is a classy, well-balanced look that speaks volumes about your attention to detail.
