HOW TO TIE A CRAVAT TIE

Step 1. Hang the cravat around your neck with one end slightly longer than the other.

Step 2. Wrap the long end across the front of the shorter end.

Step 3. Continue wrapping the long end around until you have one complete loop around the top of the short end.

Step 4. Start going round again, but as you get to the back of the loop, thread the long end up over the top of the loop from behind.

Step 5. Pull the long end all the way through over the loop until it’s hanging down the front. Tuck all the fabric behind your waistcoat for a wedding cravat, or into your open collar shirt for a casual or day cravat.
