Step-1Drape the necktie around your collar such that the wide end is on your left side and the narrow end hangs on your right side. This knot is tied using the narrow end so it will be comparatively longer than the wide end. The wide end will be placed slightly above the beltline.
Step-2Pinch the wide end to create a dimple in it.
Step-3Bring the wide end to the middle and cross the narrow end to the left side from over the wide end.
Step-4 Feed the narrow end upward through the back of the collar loop on the left side and bring it down on the right side.
Step-5Wrap the narrow end around the back of the forming knot, thus taking it into the left region with the seam facing outward.
Step-6Cross the narrow end to the right side from over the front of the knot.
Step-7Fold the narrow end into two vertical halves and then feed it through the back of the necktie knot.
Step-8Bring down the narrow end and cross it to the left side from the top of the knot. The smooth side of the folded narrow end would face inward towards the knot while the open side would face outward.
Step-9Bring the folded narrow end around the back of the knot into the right region.
Step-10Feed the narrow end through the back of the necktie knot and make it emerge from underneath the collar loop on the left side. This would create an oblique loop on the right side of the knot.
Step-11Feed the tip of the narrow end through that oblique loop created in the last step. The narrow end would now lie in the right region.
Step-12Feed the narrow end through the back of the collar loop on the right side and bring it back down on the same side.
Step-13Cross the narrow end to the opposite region from behind the knot.
Step-14Feed the narrow end again through the same oblique loop as done in the previous steps.
Step-15Pull down the wide end to tighten the knot and push it towards the center of the collar.
Step-16The remaining narrow end should be concealed under the collar loop on the right side.
And you’re done! Haddon knot is a really easy yet intricate style to wear to casual gatherings and elite dinners. The folds of the knot are best accentuated when worn with solid color ties. Experts can even try striped patterns but it’s a risk perfecting the look with so many stripes going in various directions. Good luck trying!
