We are constantly overhearing “how do I tie this…” or a slightly different variation of “how do I fold this…” from up in the Billiards room in the Decklan House! We wanted to give the guys a hand – ha, get it! – and have little how to section on all things ties!

After some searching and practice we found the guides at The Tie Bar to be the most helpful. So, if you are going for the Windsor, Four in Hand, Bow Tie or the ever popular Ascot we have you covered!


How to tie a tie -

Truth be told if you are renting your suits for your wedding from most places the ties (bow tie included) will come pre-tied in more of a clip on version. This allows you to adjust the size around your neck – the confusion here skips the tying process and jumps right to the pocket square folding. We found 9 different ways to fold these bad boys so there is no shortage of options – don’t worry we will just touch on the key ones to know!
