Hi. Are you getting ready to go out tonight? Well my name's Robert Segundo and I'm going to teach you how to tie a Windsor knot. What we're going to do is we're going to start with our tie like so. We're going to bring this up just a little bit. Somewhere around just a little bit lower than the center of my chest here. And we're going to use the small end here. We're going to wrap the thick end around it, we're going to pull it up and through like so. Kind of pull it up just a little bit. Now what we're going to do is we're going to wrap it all the way around completely one time. You're going to want to pull it right back up through the neck hole like so. Give it a little space here with my fingers here so I can actually push this right back through. This is a lot easier to do with a mirror but if you do this enough, you won't need a mirror. You can just do this by feel. Just pull it down until it gets good and tight like so and just kind of gradually work it back and forth while pulling on the small end. And get it right up there where you want it, right near your Adam's apple so you can choke on it. There we go, there we go. That's nice and snug. Make sure our collar's good and straight, our top button is buttoned, and there you have it. Your nice Windsor knot. My name is Robert Segundo and enjoy.
