One of the most common knots, the Windsor knot is a broad & triangular tie knot, good for wide collar shirts. To learn how to tie one like James Bond himself even if you are a newbie just starting out with your first tie knot., take a look below, and then start practicing in front of a mirror.

1. Start with the wide end of the tie on the right and the small end on the left. The tip of the small end should rest slightly above your belly-button (this will vary depending on your height and the length & thickness of your tie). Only move the active (wide) end
