How to tie a tie

Cross Knot
This stylish and somewhat unusual knot is moderately difficult to tie, and works best with lighter fabrics. Use this knot with any dress shirt.

Step 1
Cross the ends with the smooth side facing out. The wide end lies above the narrow one at first, pointing to the left. Then it is wrapped behind the narrow end so that it points to the right with the seam facing out.

Step 2
Fold the wide end up and through the neck loop so that it points to the left with
the seam facing out.

Step 3
Wrap the wide end completely around the narrow end so that it points to the left
again.

Step 4
Fold the wide end to the right again and pull it up through the neck loop.

Step 5
Bring the wide end down through the front loop of the double wrap.

Step 6
Draw the knot tight, ensuring that the double wrapping is visible.
