How to tie a cravat? This is a question we get asked a lot here at Cravat Club.

How to Tie a Silk Cravat or an Ascot Tie

• Step 1: Start with your top 3 buttons undone, place the cravat inside the collar with one blade about 3-4 inches longer than the other around the neck.
• Step 2: Wrap the longer blade twice around the shorter one, then bring the longer blade to the back and up through the neck (just like tying a tie).
• Step 3: Pull the longer blade to the front and "fluff" the cravat by gently pushing out with your thumbs, and tuck inside your shirt.
• Step 4: Do up your shirt button, adjust as necessary, and it's done!

Note: To prevent one of our printed silk cravats from slipping, simply wrap the longer blade around the shorter one twice, before pulling it up and back through the neck, as shown in the video. To secure it even more, try tying a simple reef knot, then fold the longer blade over to hide the knot, giving you an elegant finish. 

Our woven silk cravats are even easier to tie - made from A1 Grade Mulberry silk, using high density warp counts and multi plys, they stay where you put them, thanks to their heavier weight and texture. They simply require one loose knot to stay securely in place, allowing you to go about your day, or evening, without worrying about having a hair out of place, or compromising your immaculate style.
