In this post, we will show you how to fold ties for travel in three easy steps. So whether you’re packing for a weekend getaway or traveling for work, learning how to fold ties for travel will help make your journey easier and more efficient.
What is a tie?
When packing for a trip, it can be helpful to know how to fold ties for travel. Folding a tie takes just a few minutes and keeps them organized and looking sharp. Here are four tips for folding a tie: 1. Tie the tie in the knot at the bottom of the tie. This will help keep it from getting wrinkled when folded. 2. Take the left side of the tie and cross it over the right side of the tie, forming an “X.” 3. Tuck the ends of both sides of the X under each other until they meet in the middle and pull tight. 4. Now take the top (right) part of the X and put it over one of the previously tucked ends, so that it forms a “U” shape (like this). If your neck is shorter than average, you can also tuck the end underneath before putting on top so that there’s less chance of it coming undone while you’re wearing it. Once you have your U-shape, slide your fingers down one side of it to create a loop, then do the same with the other side to form another loop (like shown). You now have two loops on each end — one on top and one below — which you can hold together with your fingers or use clamps if necessary
Types of ties
When it comes to tying a tie, there are many different ways to go about it. The most basic way is to use a loop knot. To do this, take the end of the tie and put it over your left hand. Then take the other end of the tie and put it over your right hand, tucking it behind your back. Now pull both ends towards you until they meet in the middle. Make sure that the loops are equal in size and shape.
How to fold a tie
Fold a tie the same way for every person regardless of their height.
1. With right hand, hold the tie at its base and slightly pull it towards you.
2. With left hand, fold the top 1/3 of the tie in towards the centerline, then tuck it behind the base of the tie.
3. Hold onto both ends of the tie and gentlypull them towards you until they are even with each other, creating a loop.
4. Turn the loop so that it is facing inwards and repeat steps 2-3 on the other side of the tie.
How to tie a Windsor knot
Having trouble folding your ties for travel? Here is a step by step guide on how to tie a Windsor knot:
1. Begin by cutting the neck of the tie in half length-wise.
2. Take the left half and cross it over the right half, tucking it underneath. Now take the top end of the left side and pull it tight against the right side, making sure that the ends of both ties are now lined up evenly (see image 1).
3. Make a small loop with one of the ends of each tie (see image 2). This will be your ‘windsor’ knotting thread.
4. Take the loop made in Step 3 and place it over the ‘knot’ formed in Step 2 (see image 3), so that both ends are now hanging down below (image 4).
5. Bring both ends up towards your neck, tucking them behind the knot you just created (see image 5). After pulling through all of your hair, let go and voilà – you’ve tied a Windsor knot!
