So you can wear bow ties with most typically with wing collars. That works well with tuxedos, but we don't see too many people wearing it nowadays. People wear bow ties with small spread collars, and I think that's how they look best. So let's go back to how to tie the bow tie. So the way you want to start is to have the right hand, depending if you're right-handed or left-handed, whichever is more convenient for you. One hand is going to be longer than the other than the other one. You don't want, depending on the kind of finish you have on your bow tie, you might want to adjust the length so that you have enough width to tie the knot and make it easy for yourself. So this is where you start. The right end should be slightly longer, because I'm right-handed. You go over the shorter end. Pull it out under. That's step one. And you don't worry about the longer side. So once you're in this position, it's pretty much like tying a shoelace. So what you want to do is bring up the shorter side sideways like this. Pull down the longer part over, and it would be the middle of the knot. And now all you have to do is fold the part in your right hand and slide it inside the loop that you created. And then you just gently tighten the knot, and it's like magic. The knot stops, too. You just pull on different ends, the ones that are opposed to each other. So if you're pulling the back end with your right hand, you want to pull the front end with your left hand. And then you start adjusting the knot and making it however fluffy you like to to be. And that's how you tie a bow tie. Pretty easy, isn't it?

I always thought it was really complicated until the store lady showed me and it's actually incredibly simple. Never using a fake bow again.

First a failed Windsor knot and now he’s ATTEMPTING a bow. And pardon me, bow ties ARE in and provide a classical persona and image. Keep trying!

I'm 67 and my father taught me to tie the bowtie when I was 16. The problem with this video is that it should show the image you get when your are in front of the mirror.

The bow tie was invented in the 17th century in Croatia and its main function was to keep the collar of the shirt closed and keeping the neck upright and in the correct position. This invention was quickly adopted by the upper classes in France, then became the latest fashion and finally established during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. >> http://bit.ly/bow_ties_

This wasn't very good. At some points you explained is as if you were an expert explaining it to someone who already knew.
Horace Hogsnort (26 days ago)
It was being explained so that people with an average IQ could understand it.

Wouldn't be so bad if he wasn't so insulting about wanting to wear one, guess what, teenagers are starting it up again, so maybe your out of style !

Never wore a bow tie, never tried to tie one but Bill Nye's meticulousness to it made me curious about it. That's esencially why I'm here even though I am female.
Horace Hogsnort (26 days ago)
There are bow ties for females, usually they are big and floppy.

There is no loop! You change Camera at the most crucial times so its impossible to follow.

Would have been a lot easier if he taught us how to tie a dang bow tie

Absolutely horrible explanation. Don't become a teacher, dude. "You just pull it through, and it's like magic..." No, man. There are specific things you're doing to make it work, that you failed to explain.
Horace Hogsnort (26 days ago)
Maybe a few more IQ points, like about 50, would help you understand.

Shut the [email protected]!# up! Show the procedure, that's what people are here for... not your style advice. (Put that stuff at the end of the video.) I'll find another demonstration for the link...

So long winded and vague, watch Bill Nye's explanation on Nick Graham's channel instead.
I'm going to wear a bow tie in school. They didn't say I can't.

“All you need to do is..”. Proceeds to do some ridiculously complicated fold without explaining it at all. This video is trash.

I feel so sorry for right handlers, they struggle with anything involving dexterity, and they don’t have the same ability as left handlers to see when something is wonky, it’s because they can only use one side of the brain.
