You know what’s fun? Learning a general life skill you’ve always wanted to but never had the occasion for. Even if you rarely go all-out on some menswear yourself, it’s nice to know how to tie a tie. Here’s the deal. 

Step 1: Place the tie around your neck and make the skinny side lay shorter than the wide side.

Step 2: Cross the long side over the short, pull it behind and then up and over through the hole at your neck.

Step 3: Wrap the wide end again around the skinny end before pulling it up through the hole at your neck once more. 

Step 4: Tuck the end of the wide side down through the knot and pull to tighten.

Got it yet? Yeah, it took us several (fine, a dozen) tries to perfect it.
