Lucky Levinson of Brittons of Columbia demonstrates how to tie a bow tie. First drape the tie around the neck. Make one side shorter. Cross the longer side over the shorter side, then bring the longer side back through to make a basic knot. Take the short end (which emerges from the bottom of the knot), and make a loop with the indentation under the chin. The long high side comes straight down the center of the indentation, the back trough the hole. Tighten both loops, then adjust the flat ends, and you'll have a perfect bow tie.
