What is the proper way to tie a bow tie?
Remember: A bow tie should never look absolutely perfect. If you think of tying the bow tie the same as you would the laces of your shoe, it will work every time. It takes some nimble fingering, but once you pull the longer end up, over and through the looped end, it’s easy to make adjustments to get it reasonably straight. A faille bow tie expertly crafted of Italian silk should help you achieve a smooth knot every time. Again, it should not be perfect but properly askew; how else will others know you tied it yourself?
