How to tie your Scarf or Foulard

SCARF KNOT 1:

The scarf is a garment composed by a fabric stripe of a certain width, that we wear around our neck. In the past we mainly used it to cover ourselves from the cold during the winter; now we use it during spring and summer days for reasons of fashion. Curiosity: the first silk scarves were used in the first airplanes; the pilots tried not to breathe the aircraft exhaust gases by covering their face with a scarf! Basically, there are two ways to tie a scarf:

  1. First of all, if you have a wide scarf, fold it on itself;
  2. Put it around your neck and cross the extremities, taking the right side below the scarf, towards the neck;
  3. Let the same side go out from the neck and let it fall above the other side.

SCARF KNOT 2:

The other way, called “slip-knot” , is quite simple:

  1. Fold the scarf alongside the length, matching the width extremities, and put it around your neck;
  2. Put the length extremities through the ring you’ve created and pull them until the scarf adheres to the neck. Decide if you want to tighten your scarf or not.

THE FOULARD: a women’s touch of class

The “Foulard” is a neckerchief created with different fabrics, mainly with silk, cotton or wool. In the clothing field, its use could be different. The foulard could be worn on the head, as a headgear, around the neck, on the shoulders, tied to a bag handle, as a belt. It could be of a lot of colors, even printed in different motifs. The word “foulard” is French and it represents the silk neckerchief. It’s always been a typically woman garment but, during the last years, the most important fashion houses and the fashion industry, have introduced a particular foulard and scarves use in to men’s fashion. There are a lot of ways to tie a foulard:

Fold the foulard so to obtain a triangle, as in the central picture;

  1. Wear it around your neck, crossing the two rear corners, then take them forward;
  2. Check for the two corners symmetry;
  3. Grab them and tie them once or twice, according to your preferred length;
  4. Arrange the foulard so to fall exactly in the center.

Put the foulard on a surface and start folding a corner towards the center. Then make a fold on the same side. Repeat the same operation for the opposite side. Finally, put the two halves one on top of the other; you have obtained a fabric stripe (see picture above).

Put it around your neck, leaving an extremity longer than the other one and cross them, taking the longer one below the other one.

Let the longer side make a complete rotation and take it towards the neck, passing below the foulard;

Put it through the ring you’ve just created;

Match the two sides. For more details see the Tie “Simple knot”.

  1. Spread out the foulard on a flat surface and fold it, so to obtain a triangle;
  2. Wear it, putting it on your head at a forehead level;
  3. Take the extremities and tie them backward, on your nape;
  4. Then, take them on the forward, sideways.

Spread out the foulard on a flat surface and fold it, so to obtain a triangle;

Put it around your neck, crossing the extremities backward and, then, take them forward;

Leave them untied.

  1. Spread out the foulard on a flat surface, completely open;
  2. Fold the foulard so to obtain a triangle;
  3. Fold it again so to obtain a smaller triangle;
  4. Put the foulard around your neck, crossing and taking the extremities forward;
  5. Insert the extremities into the fabric, to hide them;
  6. Arrange the point towards a side you like.
 

How to make an Ascot Knot

How to make an Ascot Knot

The Plastron, a French word used to indicate the Medieval knights chest, or Ascot, is a kind of tie that we usually save for very formal occasions; it matches with a morning suit.

Curiosity: in the equestrian field, particularly in the dressage, the plastron is an important accessory of the horsewoman outfit, whereas the men usually wear a white tie; in the hunting the plastron is recommended for both.

The ascot tie was born as hunting scarf: a fabric tape, tied around the neck that could be useful in case of emergency to aid knights and horses, to stop the bleeding or to immobilize broken limbs.

Although it has become regulatory in the early XX century, its origin dates back to the 80’s of the XIX century, in the upper middle class and nobility houses. It was usually worn for big occasions, high-society dinners and during the promenades through the elegant districts. Here are the different ways to knot the ASCOT.

The single ascot knot is quite simple to make:

  1. Put the ascot around your neck;
  2. Put the ascot tip through the ring;
  3. Take the tip towards the neck, passing below the ascot;
  4. Let the tip fall onwards and fix it until you obtain the shape you wish. The ascot is usually worn underneath the shirt collar. The first shirt button (at least) is traditionally left open.

Nodo ascot 1 punta

Double ascot knot:

  1. Put the ascot around you neck;
  2. Cross the two parts from above and start to make a rotation;
  3. Complete the rotation and take the two parts towards the neck;
  4. Pass below the ascot;
  5. Let the tip fall onwards and fix until you obtain the shape you wish. The ascot is usually worn underneath the shirt collar. The first shirt button (at least) is traditionally left open.

How to make your bow tie knot

BOW TIE KNOT: the eccentric one

There are some occasions in which the bow tie reigns supreme: ceremonies, operas, parties. The papillon likely derives from the Croatian soldiers of fortune. During the Thirty years’ War, in the XVII century, they used a ribbon to tie their shirts which didn’t have any button. This method was “adopted” in French men fashion and then in the other European countries. In Italy it was a symbol attributed to futurists, communists, anarchists and in general to revolutionary people, since it contrasted with the bourgeois strictness. In our Country, the “Madam Butterfly” mise-en-scene in La Scala Theater, Milan, 1904, made this kind of tie famous as “butterfly”, “papillon” in French, in honor of Puccini. Nowadays, the “day necktie” is one of the most showy ways to distinguish ourselves. It denotes fantasy, creativity, freedom of spirit. We have a ”pre-tied” bow tie (with a collar provided with a latch and a regulation system) and a self-tie bow tie (it appears as a simple tape). The steps to tie it are very simple:

  1. Put the tape around your collar and cross the two parts of the bow ties. One has to be a bit longer than the other one, since it will be used to make the knot;
  2. Take the longer leg towards the collar, passing below the papillon;
  3. Fold the shorter part towards the right side;
  4. With your hand, keep the folded part and let the longer part fall on the folded one;
  5. Take the longer part of the papillon behind the folded part. Put it through the little loop that you’ve created and make it go out on the other side;
  6. Tighten the papillon and arrange the two sides so to give symmetry to the bow tie.

A little trick: it’s recommended to match the two bow ties extremities with the external corners of your eyes!

 

How to make a Tie Knot

“SIMPLE” TIE KNOT: the practical one

There are different ways to tie your necktie, but the most used is undoubtedly those that English people call “Four-in-hand”, that is a four simple movements knot. The result is a small knot, that creates on its low part a kind of pretty “dimple”, that gives the tie an elegant fold. Since its final volume is small, we suggest you to choose it with wide ties. The steps are easy to follow:

 

Put you tie around your collar and cross the wide side (“gamba”) with the narrow side (“gambetta”) putting on top the wide side.

Pass the wide side around behind the narrow side;

So, you have created a loop in which afterwards you will insert the wide side and complete the knot;

Take the wide side towards the collar, passing below the narrow side and put it through the loop you have just created;

Softly pull the wide part to tie the knot, until it adheres to the first button of your shirt. In an ideally perfect way, the two tie extremities should have the same length, almost arriving to your belt.

“HALF WINDSOR” TIE KNOT: the refined one

A really famous knot is the so-called “Half-Windsor”. Contrary to what you probably think, the Windsor Duke hasn’t invented this kind of tie knot. He just contributed to start this fashion in the 30’s of the last century. In Italy we called it “scappino”, from a Turin ties firm that explained how to tie this kind of knot in a brochure, before the II World War. This “royal” knot has the quality to give relevance to particularly narrow ties, since it creates a bit more volume.

These are the steps you have to follow to make a “half Windsor” tie knot:

  1. Put you tie around your collar and cross the wide side (“gamba”) with the narrow side (“gambetta”), putting on top the wide side.
  2. Let the wide side slide below the narrow side, taking the former towards the collar;
  3. Create a loop by passing the wide side around behind the narrow side;
  4. Take the wide side towards the collar, passing below the narrow side;
  5. Put it through the loop you have just created;
  6. Softly pull the wide part to tie the knot, until it adheres to the first button of your shirt. In an ideally perfect way, the two tie extremities should have the same length, almost arriving to your belt.

“DOUBLE WINDSOR” TIE KNOT: the polished one

The “Double Windsor” knot differs from the “Half Windsor” one for a bigger volume, because of its double rolling.It’s the big events knot. It’s particularly recommended for a 3 pieces suit and one of the most difficult to make. It requires a lot of experience:

These are the steps you have to follow:

  1. Put you tie around your collar and cross the wide side (“gamba”) with the narrow side (“gambetta”) putting on top the wide side.
  2. Let the wide side slide below the narrow side, taking the wide side towards the collar;
  3. Take the wide side forward and on the same side of the narrow side. Take the wide side behind the narrow side, towards the opposite side;
  4. Take the wide side towards the collar and let the wide side pass around behind the narrow side;
  5. Take the wide side frontward and cross the two parts. Afterwards, let the wide side slip below the narrow side, taking the wide side towards the collar;
  6. Put the wide side through the loop you have just created;
  7. Softly pull the wide part to tie the knot, until it adheres to the first button of your shirt. . In an ideally perfect way, the two tie extremities should have the same length, almost arriving to your belt.

“PRINCE ALBERT” TIE KNOT OR "DOUBLE KNOT": the original one

As the name reminds us, this knot derives from the simple knot, but with a further passage; it’s recommended for narrow, thin and soft ties on long collar tips shirts. It is used, above all, by short men, since it allows to adapt the tie length to their height, thanks to the double knot. It’s also called “Prince Albert”: original, but not bizarre.

The steps are pretty simple:

  1. Put you tie around your collar and cross the wide side (“gamba”) with the narrow side (“gambetta”) putting on top the wide side
  2. Roll the wide side around the narrow side, towards the inside;
  3. Repeat the latter step, taking the wide side below the narrow side, towards the collar;
  4. Put it through the loop and pull it downwards;
  5. Softly pull the wide part to tie the knot, until it adheres to the first button of your shirt. In an ideally perfect way, the two tie extremities should have the same length, almost arriving to your belt.

“KENT" TIE KNOT: the refined one

The “Kent knot”, or “Small Knot”, is a simple knot variation, the simplest after the “Simple Knot”. It’s less voluminous and is not adaptable to all the collars and ties. Indeed, it is recommended for wide ties: in this case, an elaborated knot would be too big. It’s also recommended for tall men: having less knots, the tie gains 6 cm in length.

These are the steps you have to follow:

  1. Put the tie around your collar and lightly bend the wide side (the “gamba”), until the rear part is visible;
  2. Cross wide and narrow side (the “gambetta), putting the narrow side on top;
  3. Roll the wide side around the narrow side and take it towards the collar, passing below the narrow side;
  4. Put the wide side through the loop you’ve just created;
  5. Softly pull the wide part to tie the knot, until it adheres to the first button of your shirt. In an ideally perfect way, the two tie extremities should have the same length, almost arriving to your belt.

“PRATT KNOT": the sporting one

The “Pratt Knot” was invented by Jerry Pratt, a US chamber of commerce employee, who had used this knot for about twenty years. Then, Don Shelby, a TV personality, used it on his shows and made it famous. Afterwards, the press wrongly gave to Shelby the invention credits. This knot doesn’t require many steps to be made, is adaptable to not very long ties and open collar shirts. Although this knot and the “simple” one are very similar, the Pratt’s one produces a symmetric knot:

These are the steps you have to follow:

  1. Put the tie around the collar, with the rear in view and with the wide part on the left;
  2. Roll the wide part around the narrow part, creating a loop;
  3. Pull the wide side to tighten the knot;
  4. Take the wide side ahead of the narrow side and afterwards towards the collar, passing below the narrow side;
  5. Put the wide side through the loop you’ve created;
  6. Softly pull the wide part to tie the knot, until it adheres to the first button of your shirt.
