HOW TO TIE A bowtie
Measure your neck girth, and set the bow tie length accordingly. This illustration is mirrored; your right is the model’s left. That’s how it will look when you’re facing the mirror.
With your collar popped up, drape the bow tie face-side up over your neck. Hang the left end an inch longer.
Bring the left end over the right side…
…and into the neck loop from under (It should hang about an inch longer than the right end.).
Form a bow with the right end - with the fold on the right and the flap on the left.
Lower the left end...
…and form a bow – with the fold on the right and the flap on the left. You will be folding to form a mouth.
Put the bow through the loop at the back of the left side bow. It will be easier to do this top-right corner first. This completes the rough bow tie.
To tighten the band in the middle, pull on the folds. To rebalance the bows, pull on the flaps.
Pop down your collar and tuck behind the bows. You’re good to go.
