The instructions worked perfectly Nate!! My wife and I were planning on attending a Gala in San Antonio back in September and I did not want to use the pre-tied bow tie on my tux. As you said - if you do that, you might as well go with the turquoise vest and too much hair gel. So...I used Google to find your video and after about 15 minutes of watching it and practicing a few times - I had the perfect bow tie! As some of the other commentators said, the tip to pull the elephant ears forward was absolute genius! We had another black tie event in late October and this time, it took me just a couple of minutes to get it tied. Thanks again for this great video!

Took a lot of tries (especially the last part, after the "elephant"), but it worked - this was a lot more helpful than other tutorials, thank you guys!

All except the fact that I’m a 49 yo man who makes animals to tie his tie.... I think to think it makes me whimsical....

Nowadays, bow ties are fashionable among men and women and we can see them constantly on the red carpet. Every day there are more young men who join this trend, such as Mario Casas, Justin Timberlake, and Ryan Gosling. Also women like Alexa Chung, Kim Kardashian and, as she did in her day, the great model of the times of feminine fashion: Audrey Hepburn. >> http://bit.ly/bow_ties_

Best "How to tie your bowtie" video on youtube!
Dr. S. P. (4 months ago)
Easily the very best video on how to tie a bow tie properly! It's true that it makes absolute sense! It seems that most of the other videos are overly complicated and ALL seem so very long winded with repetitive rhetoric, where this one cuts to the chase, with easy stages to remember and for me personally went from a never tied one before to a perfect bow tie after the very first time trying. That's what we wanted and that is what you get here.

Elieser Rivera (4 months ago)
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I had a job interview today and I needed something to help me not just look professional but also not so "young." Essentially a more "upscale" look. I struggled for about 2 hours with your video but I can now say I know how to tie a bow tie and I was able to get it right in time for my interview. Thank you

Never had a reason to wear a bow tie yet. When that day comes it better be worth it. Coz fewthink bow ties in general look ridiculous no matter how well it's worn.
Malcomb Hardy (5 months ago)
This is by far the best tutorial. Nailed it in the car on the way to a wedding. (Wife was driving)
Dr. S. P. (5 months ago)
This was and is the only video that taught me to tie a perfect bow tie. It’s also the only one I found that thank fully wasn’t long winded like so many others. Great video.

there are skips. which is the long part, to the left or right? Then it skips again. Fkg poor editing.

Wondered why at black tie events the geezers by the end of the night all have their bow ties loose around their shoulders

the animal puns make all the difference ... only vid that worked for me ... second try, bingo!

Should you only wear printed ties with solid shirts and vice versa???

Fuck u and this video
William Shontz (6 months ago)
I am left-handed, and I reinforce every stereotype of leftedness one will find. This is BY FAR the best of all the videos and charts I found to try to learn to tie a bowtie (I just did the opposite of the right/left directions.). And I found the animal analogies quite helpful (but please, do not tell anyone that).
Jason Boyle (6 months ago)
All I got was that it’s important that other people know you’re the one who tied it

Amra Klein (6 months ago)
Yay after watching this and trying it about five times, I got it and can now tie a bow tie!
Dr. S. P. (6 months ago)
I agree with another in the fact that this is the one video that makes sense. So many out there are so long winded and corny. This is straight to the point and after this I was tying a bow tie with no problem. Two thumbs up!

Thanks for this video. The cheesy animal puns made it very easy to understand. Watched the video 3 times and had the technique mastered on my 2nd try.

Mate way to go! This is WAY better than Bill Nye's video. Thank you.
Frank Thomas Rechichi (8 months ago)
No, no, no, a million times no. This does not work. When trying to learn in a mirror, what I see is the reverse of what he is doing. And there's a hard edit before the third step - the elephant - that changes the whole look of the setup. How did the hole in the back get so big? How do you make it like that from the beginning? Stick with the pre-tied tie. You don't have to prove your coolness at the end of the night, and you might have some sanity left over, too.

Cheesy animal puns for the win!
Nathaniel Berkeley-Biggs (11 months ago)
This is a Gentlemanly discipline, if you are an adult and having to learn this as opposed to being taught this as a small child along with all of the other British Gentlemanly skills required for life, then it’s doubtful you should even be wearing a bow tie? Also, a bow tie should be perfect, a sloppy bow tie does not represent individuality, it represents incompetence. A proper bow tie knot should be more perfect than a clip on. This is just an excuse for men who can’t tie one.
hipcuteguy (11 months ago)
The best bow tie 101 simple and sinks in. Love the ending I do that every time now, thanks a million.

Thanks for the help! (Pssst....those aren’t puns. Like a parrot on a pirate’s shoulder is a simile. A pessimist’s blood type is B Negative. THAT’S a pun.)

One skill I won’t need as bow ties are for little boys. Maybe that’s why Chevy has a bow tie for a logo.
