Every man should be able to tie his own bow tie. Only boys at prom wear pre-tied bow ties or clip-on bow ties. You should never wear that, it shows, it's too symmetrical, it's too perfect, it looks cheap. Elegant men like Winston Churchill would always wear their bow tie slightly skewed and that shows the true character of a perfectly tied bow tie. It is not symmetrical. In recent years, bow ties have become much more popular and this is the easiest way to tie it. If you have an adjustable bow tie, adjust to the right length. Usually, you use the neck size that you have for your shirt but you can play around with it. If you go for a fixed length bow tie like the black bow ties from Fort Belvedere, you won't need to adjust anything. Once it's adjusted, throw it around your neck, flop down your collar and button the top button. You may want to pull on the inside so it looks neat. Alright, this is how you tie it. First, the left side of your bow tie to be about an inch or one and a half inches longer than your right one. So, long end goes over short end. Pinch with your left hand. Now, the longer end goes up through the hole and you pull it tight. Now, your right hand, you leave your bow tie here.With your left hand, you hold that end of the bow tie and you bring your index finger between your body and the bow tie and you move it over to create a bow tie shape which you can see here. Now with your right hand, bring the other piece in, the longer piece and fold it over. Now it really looks like a bow tie from the front. So what I do now is I take this part of the bow tie and hold it together like so. Now I switch my hands and what I can see now is that I created a hole back here and this is where this part has to go through. Now I create another bow tie shape here and I do that with my fingers like so, fold it up so I get a shape similar to a bow tie and I just push it through that little hole recreated. Now, I pull the folded ends so it tightens the knot of my bow tie and there you go, the bow tie.

Silk Satin Cummerbund in Black - https://gentl.mn/2pNLHEF Video Content: 00:53 Jacket The classic choice for a fabric is a black wool barathea which is a little more matte and alternatively, you can opt for something navy or a very dark blue, maybe with a herringbone weave, some people even go with fine twill weave or a plain weave. 02:19 Vents The most traditional jacket has no vents which is unusual today because most jackets have either side vents or center vents. 02:39 Pocket Style The most original pocket style is jetted pockets. You have one on the right, one on the left, no ticket pocket. 02:50 Buttons You want black matching buttons that are either covered in the same fabric as your tuxedo or silk, or you go with a contrasting button. 03:10 Lapels Should be faced with silk. 03:47 What to avoid - You do not want a flannel material - Avoid notched lapels - Avoid any two button or three button single breasted jackets - Avoid side vents and center vents 04:20 Trousers You want a matching material to the jacket in the same color. A special hallmark of the black tie trouser is a strip of fabric on the side which is also called galon. 06:23 Vest When it comes to an evening vest, they're very different from your day vest. They have a much deeper cut out so you see more of your shirt front and the studs on your shirt front. 05:31 Cummerbund When you wear your cummerbund, make sure that the pleats face upwards not downwards. 07:09 Tuxedo Shirt It's made of a white fabric usually poplin or twill and it always has an insert. It can either be in Marcella or a pique cotton insert, it can be a pleated front or sometimes just a finely woven pattern. 08:39 Black Bow Tie Never wear a black neck tie, that would be incorrect. The only acceptable color is black and you can go with different shapes and textures. 09:21 Shoes The only two options were a capless Oxford shoe that was laced or opera pumps also known as court shoes with a deep cut out and a bow in front. 10:59 Black Tie Accessories You want to have black silk socks that are over the calf. 11:35 Cuff links Usually black such as onyx or abalone, sometimes, they would come as a matching set with your shirt style. Personally, I also like to wear white mother of pearl studs because it just provides a different look . 12:14 Boutonniere Most classic choice are carnations. White or red will work as well but you can also go with pink or white or any other color for that matter that suits you. If you wear a boutonniere, make sure you wear the stem through the buttonhole of your lapel. 13:41 Hat The perfect hat would be a homburg hat because it has the right degree of formality. 13:56 White evening gloves It definitely provides a very dapper look, screams elegance.
