How to Tie a Simple Half Windsor Knot:
As the name suggests, the half Windsor tie knot is a little smaller than the full Windsor knot. It therefore needs less of the tie’s fabric, which will make the knot better suited for taller people tying a regular length necktie. It is a much more triangular looking tie knot than the Four in Hand, or the Kent knot. It is a great choice of tie knot when wearing shirts with a medium or regular collar spread. When comparing the half Windsor to it’s bigger brother, the full double Windsor knot, it is slightly more asymmetric.
- Place the necktie around your neck with the wide part of the tie on your left side. Take the wide end of the tie and cross it over the narrow end at a 90d degree angle.
- Pull the wide end of the tie around the part on your right side of the collar. Pull it behind the tie.
- Then pull it slightly tight and back around the narrow end of the tie. As a tip: Hold the half finished knot in place with your left Hand.
- Pull the wide end behind the tie and around back to the front side of the narrow end. Then, lust like before, pull the wide end of the necktie around the part located on your right side near your collar. Don’t pull it tight, but make sure you have a loop on the front of the unfinished Windsor.
- Pull the wide end through the loop
