An Arrow knot is a slight variant of Onassis or Caldwell Swagg knot which makes it really easy to tie. This step by step guide will help you learn how to tie an Arrow knot in no time. 

Step-1 Drape the necktie around your collar in such a way that the wide end hangs on the left side and the narrow end on the right side. This knot is tied using the wide end thus it would be placed a few inches lower than the narrow end. 

Step-2 Cross the wide end from left to right over the front of the narrow end.

Step-3 Feed the wide end up through the back of your collar loop on the right side and bring it back down on the same side.

Step-4 Cross the wide end from the back of the forming back towards the left side.

Step-5 Feed the wide end up through the top of the necktie knot and pull it downwards all the way through. This would make the wide end lie exactly behind the narrow end with the seam facing outward.

Step-6 Cross the wide end to the right side.

Step-7 Bring the wide end into the left region by crossing it over the front of the knot. This would create a horizontal band in the front of the knot as happens in the Windsor knot.

Step-8 Feed the wide end up through the collar loop and bring it down from the front.

Step-9 Feed it into the horizontal loop created in the previous steps to form a Windsor knot.

Step-10 Tighten the knot a little bit and open the first few buttons of your dress shirt.

Step-11 Twist the narrow end so that its seam faces outward and then feed it up through the top of the knot (through the neck hole) and bring it back down on the front side so that it lies on top of the wide end with the seam facing outward.

Step-12 Feed the tip of the narrow end up behind the shirt and pull it down by tugging from inside the shirt. This is why we made you unbutton the top buttons in the previous steps. Make sure to pull it down halfway and leave it a little loose behind the wide end.

Step-13 Tug on that loose part of the narrow end to tighten the knot. This would create a tiny loop at the center of the collar which is the characteristic feature of the Arrow knot.

Step-14 Button up your shirt and smoothen out any visible flaws.

And you’re done! Keep practicing the steps to achieve a perfect look that can be pulled off in less than two minutes.
