(when looking in a mirror)
|Step One: Start with the wide end of the tie on your right, extended about 12 inches below narrow end.
|Step Two: Cross the wide end over the narrow. Then bring the wide end up through the loop between the knot and your neck. Turn wide end down and to the left.
|Step Three: Bring the wide end around behind the knot, ending on your right.
|Step Four: Pass the wide end up and through loop between the knot and your neck. Turn wide end down and to the left. Cross the wide end around the knot from left to right.
|Step Five: Again pass the wide end the loop between the knot and your neck, ending in the middle of the loop. Hold the front of the knot open slightly with your index finger to create a loop in the knot.
Pass the wide end down through the knot in the loop that you've just created in front. Tighten the knot carefully. Draw the knot tight by holding the narrow end of the tie and sliding the knot up snug to your collar.
