How to Tie a Bow Tie

Aaron x Andrews

The bow tie; an elegant and fashion forward statement piece that many have tired, but few have mastered.

As if mastering the Windsor or any other basic form of tie-tying was hard enough, many believe the bow-tie is the trickiest of them all. I too had to turn to YouTube videos to learn the best ways to tie a bow-tie years ago, and I'm proud to say I have in fact "mastered" the art of bow-tying.

Now that you know the benefits of tying your own bow-tie, here are some ways to help you master the art!
