How to Tie the Double Windsor Knot

Double Windsor Knot

The Double Windsor Knot is best used with dress shirts that have wide-spread collars. The Double Windsor Knot is thicker and wider and requires more tie length to achieve the look some taller men may consider using XL length ties.

  1. Fold the shirt collar up, and button the top button
  2. Place the necktie around your neck and ensure that the wide end of the tie is 6-7 inches below than the narrow end
  3. Cross the narrow end over the wide end
  4. Slip the tie through the gap between the neck and the tie knot
  5. Keep pulling the tie all the way around until it is back behind the narrow end of the tie
  6. Repeat this action again but with the other side
  7. After this, wrap the wide end of the tie and bring it back over towards the front
  8. Pull the wide end again through the gap between your neck and the knot loosely, so that a loop is created
  9. Slip the wide end of the knot through this newly created loop
  10. Adjust and tighten to neaten the knot and place your collar back down over the necktie.

It’s up to you if you want a dimple in the tie but remember if you don’t do a dimple the tie lays flat.
