We are just two short days away from the kick-off of Keeneland’s spring meet, two weeks from Easter, and a month from Derby which means it’s time to pull out the bright colors, the plaids, pink and blue seersucker suits, and the bowties! I’ve always wanted to learn how to tie a bowtie and my good friend, Eric from Goff Club Collections provided me this stunning water color bowtie to do a little bowtie tying lesson. Let’s get to it!
Step 1: Set your bowtie to the appropriate neck size.
Step 2: Remember…anytime you tie any sort of bow…the one on top, stays on top and to make the one on top a little bit longer (for wrapping around the other piece).
Step 3: Keeping the longer piece still on top, create half of the bow on the bottom side.
Step 4: Flip that first “on top” piece over the bottom half bow.
Step 5: Fold the bottom half-bow over the top part to create a hole behind.
Step 6: Push the “on top” piece through the hole.
Step 7: Adjust the tie back and forth for tightness and until you get the bow to lay the way you want it (you may have to un-tighten and tighten a few times until you get the hang of it).
Step 8: Look dapper AF and go bet on some pony’s!
Shop this bowtie, pocket squares, ties and more from the Goff Club Collection, made locally in Lexington, KY.
