Follow the steps to learn how to tie a proper Windsor knot.
First of all, ensure that your collar is up. This makes it easier to tie the knot. Take a look at the diagram on the left. “W” stands for wide and “N” stands for narrow. Take the “W” part of the tie and place it around your dominant side (the side you use to write or play sport.). Allow enough length in the “W” side for the tie to reach your belt buckle. Cross the “W” part over the “N” part of the tie.
If the “W” part of the tie is too short or too long, untie the tie and start again with the “W” part of the tie in a more suitable position.
When taking off and untying the tie, follow these steps in reverse order. This is to prevent the tie from distorting.
If you still cannot tie a windsor knot, ask one of your Flight NCO’s to help
