We are continuing our 'how to tie' necktie series with the 'One Up Bow'. This tie option is great with our more structured 'Grand Slammers' necktie as well as our 100% silk neckties. You can pull the loop short to stand up more straight or pull it longer to hang.
Check out the steps below to give her a try!
Here is a full preview of the steps and below are the steps you can follow individually.
Step 1: Start with the necktie resting on the back of your neck and the ends laying with one tail slightly shorter than the other.
Step 2: Start by crossing the tails
Step 3: Bring one tail through the opening above the criss cross
Step 4: Pull tail through and place them on top of each other
Step 5: Pull to tighten close to neck with the top piece resting on top of the bottom.
Step 6: Create loop with the top tail
Step 7: Wrap the looped tail with the other tail
Step 8: Continue wrapping around the backside of the loop
Step 9: Pull this second tail through the center knot, creating a loop at the top
Step 10: Hold this second loop in place and start to pull the tail of the other loop downward
Step 11: Keep pulling the tail until the knot has tightened at the top, adjust the one loop to make it shorter or longer.
Step 12: Voila! The one up bow
