Tim, you're such a heartthrob...
Donny Rickles Jr. (9 months ago)
Why you accusing him of arrhythmia? Can't you just eat better and take personal responsibility occasionally?
Waterman (1 year ago)
I don't understand, you line the bottom of the tie up with the "second visible from the bottom?" I don't get it. Can someone explain?
Zach Young (1 year ago)
Dude this is awesome. I give my humblest thanks, i was seriously stuggling for the past hour trying to get my darned tie exactly right. Sincerely- High school student going to prom

You don't wear a tie to button down shirts :D
Rodrigo o.t.c. Neto (1 year ago)
I did like the video, I think the tips on how to put on a tie are great, I suggest you just remove the toilet from the environment where you keep clothes and where you dress, because the toilet is normal in an environment not to spread contamination. If you can not put him in a room alone, he should be in a bathroom, never in a closet. I hope you will not be offended by my remark, for I do it solely with the intention of helping you, never to recriminate you.

Insightful Warrior you kidding? Now he has enough money to buy your my and everybody else's hair. Guy doesn't need his own hair.

not more than today. Just went for bold to exclude this concern from his life, as many great men do.

Love this video. Use it every time I have a formal event to go to. Thank you, Tim Ferriss!
BeauJames59 (1 year ago)
I'm going with the four-in-hand knot. It breaks up the symmetry of the outfit in a most sexy way.....
Insightful Warrior (1 year ago)
This was the most usefulthing he learned in high school . That says a lot.
Jørgen Alexandersen (2 years ago)

Great tie but a dimple would have made for a perfect tie

Morts & More dimples are a deformity you deformed raccoon.

where is the dimple ??? the perfect tie look like Oama's tie with dimple
AnonymousRex (3 years ago)
@Karadic Exactly right. This is not a perfect tie without a dimple.
Thomas Ciesla (4 years ago)
Where's the dimple?  Not so perfect!

+Digitalist Man, you should be a Super HERO! That was awesome!
Digitalist (4 years ago)
Lol the only reason I'm "using my education as a counter-argument" is because you said "you're black, so it's okay" insinuating that I wouldn't have to worry about tying a tie because I can't find a job I'm guessing?? And to answer you question, I DOUBLE majored in Video Arts and Computer Science. I would ask you the same but I don't care enough
Hr9C0 (4 years ago)
Haha, no way. You're insecure and defensive that you're using your education as a counter-argument. Let's hear it, what did you major in?
Digitalist (4 years ago)
@Hr9C0 True but I'd bet a million bucks that I have a better job & education than you do!
Hr9C0 (4 years ago)
You're black, so it's okay.

Derek Eklund (5 years ago)
Thanks. Perfect.

If you are first time to try this, its way to fast pase to have a clue what to do.
Bill Magnus (5 years ago)
windsor knots are only appropriate with straight collar shirts- not button downs
Eddy Buckmaster (5 years ago)
I'm reminded of Mr Perfect.  Good job.
Lee Graves (5 years ago)
I've always had trouble with this one...makes me want to try again.
soccerguy2433 (5 years ago)
isn't this how you make all winsor knots?
Dan Slattery (5 years ago)
As usual, Tim knows the easiest way to do something.
Michael Wilson (5 years ago)
Temujin (5 years ago)
To add my 1-cent worth, if the tie you use to make a Windsor knot is too thick and broad, no matter how hard you try and no matter how many times you attempt it, you'll end up with a clown sized knot the size of your fist and your tie won't come close to reaching your belt buckle - emphasizing the clown-like appearance. To do a Windsor, you need to invest in a nice tie.
A Sh (5 years ago)
Thanks, really helpful!
Adrian D (5 years ago)
Mediocre. CERTAINLY not "Every time. "
avery041993 (5 years ago)
Its 2026...who still wears ties? Thats ancient technology.

Just perfected it after an hour of tries. Thanks Tim!

Great video -- Amazingly helpful compared to those awful diagrams online.
Brad Wetton (6 years ago)
It confuses me why someone would film a video like this in a toilet???
Donny Rickles Jr. (9 months ago)
Maybe because he's not actually in a toilet. Do you see a small pool of water and fresh brown hieroglyphics all over the walls?

I've been trying this sporadically watching random YouTube video's For the past year or so and I could never get a good looking tie so I always fell back to my zip -on but I got an awesome looking knot on the second try. Don't know what it was but this video clicked with me so thanks for posting!
Aaron Gilliam (6 years ago)
Thank you! I've always wondered my ties were
chan tastic (6 years ago)
This is the method I prefer. You guys should check out the hanover knot. Makes an even larger knot with a better looking triangle shape. You'll need a slightly longer tie for this one though.

Dude you saved my ass for my anniversary dinner tonight. Thank you.
John denis Smith (6 years ago)
Now the whole of me is perfect. thanks dude YOU ROCK!!!!!!
kingofmonra (6 years ago)
Damn, first thing I did was to look at a 7 min long video explaining the same thing you did, just for a very long time, and it did not help at all. Then I tried to use your video, and I got it perfect the first try. Well the knot anyway, the length was a bit too long (a few cm over the belt, but that is not your fault).
cnotenesmith (6 years ago)
Why does Tim Ferriss know how to do everything exceptionally well!??! lol Thanks a million!

I truly hope somewhere in this crazy world, some government or board has commissioned a bronze statue of you, where 2 fulltime security guards work 24 hour shifts to shoo away any possible pigeons.

Dungsta (7 years ago)
The technique works, but the video is super sloppy. It's hard to follow.
Fabio Spelta (7 years ago)
I know an easier way. Don't wear a darn strangling device. I would rather change my job or my friends if any of those would require wearing that stupid thing. :)
Michael Andrews (7 years ago)
I did it your way and it looks perfect every time!! Thanks bro

This is a "double Windsor," which is indeed the best way to tie a tie!
ReX (7 years ago)
When I finally realised I was doing it all wrong because of the mirror effect, I did a full copy and ended up with a tie in the wrong direction. I loosened it, took it off my neck, reversed it, put it back on and I'm not taking the knot out anymore. Perhaps I should learn how to 'normally tie a tie' first ;)
xNighthawkSGx (7 years ago)
I've never tied a perfect tie in my life! First time trying this way I produced a perfect knot!! Thanks man, you're the best!
KingTretten (7 years ago)
I knew how to tie a windsor, but i now i know how to make it perfect :-P Thanks man
354ever (8 years ago)
Not perfedt. The perfect tie knot has a dimple. Yours did not. but nice effort.
MrSaxofy (8 years ago)
Thank you friend. Iv never liked wearing them because I could never get it right no matter how many times I was shown. But the V shape really does help. thanks :)
