Bow tie – It’s different from the regular neck tie
If you are tired off with the same pattern of tying a neck tie each time, you can simply change a little to your routine with the help of bow tie. Bow tie is one of the fashion accessories worn with suits or dinner jackets. It is made up of a ribbon fabric that could be tied around the collar in a symmetrical manner so that the two opposite ends form loops. There are ready- tied bow ties where a distinctive bow is sewn into shape and the band tied around neck has a clip. Bow ties could be made of silk, polyester or mix of fabrics. Tying a bow tie is also not so difficult that you can’t tie it yourself. After wearing your outfit or formal wear just follow the below mentioned instructions:
1. You should start with the left end that should be 4 cm longer than the right end. Then slip the short end under the long end.
2. Next you need to choose how much loose you want the tie to be. You can take the collar button as the reference point and finish crossing the long end over the short end.
3. Still holding the tie at the button to keep it loose, you need to slip the long end under the short end.
4. Zig-zag the end on your chest whereby one fold is the wide part of the tie.
5. After you finish the zig–zag, fold the long flap over the front of tie.
6. Pinch the front of the tie in half and then swing the long flap to the right.
7. Push the pinched corner through the hole and flatten the right half of the front.
8. Slip a finger into the left bow and even up the three layers on the right half while pulling the left bow through the hole.
9. Grip all the three layers on the right and pull the left bow through the hole.
