how to tie a tie (Simple Method)

Also known as the Oriental, Kent knot and Petit Noeud, the Simple Knot contains the fewest possible steps and is very easy to learn.

Despite its simplicity, this knot is rarely worn in the West but maintains popularity in China. This may be because it is not self-releasing, making it more difficult to untie.

The Simple knot is compact with an asymmetry causing it to lean toward the active end.

This knot works well with thick neckties or for tall guys who need a little extra length. Live the simple life.

Tying Instructions

  • Start with the backside of the tie facing away from you, the wide end is on the right and the small end is on the left. The tip of the small end should rest slightly above your belly-button (this will vary depending on your height and the length & thickness of your tie). Move only the active (wide) end.
  • Wide end under the small end to the left.
  • Across the small end to the right.
  • Up into the neck loop from underneath.
  • Down through the loop you’ve just made in the front.
  • Pull down on the wide end to tighten. Slide the knot up to adjust.

Well, you see, it’s very simple and easy, especially for school kids.
