Next, could you tell me how to tie my shoe? I'm a touch dyslexic so it's easier for me to someone else's shoe than my own.   ;) thank you.

I have been searching far and wide for the rounded club bow tie, but I have been completely unable to find one. Does anyone know of a place that I can procure one?

it took me 3 of the most hilarious hours of researching and screaming before i figured this out. This video - the last few seconds about tightening / adjusting the length at the back is genius. Would have never thought of it and would've just untied and started over

Welp, imma going to just tie on one of my bow ties now. Because I'm cool like that.
soooo... Does this mean AB is a Whovian? or nah...
do bow ties work with shorter people? Lets say, 5'6? I'm just worried how it might make me look shorter than I am :-/

Hi Alton, I love your bow tie tutorial video!
akirak (1 year ago)
I've been wearing bowties for quite a while now. Put one on sometime, and you'll be surprised how many compliments you get! They're also more comfortable and easier to wear. You tie it once, and you're done! It more or less stays the way you tied it. You might have to tighten the ends a few times a day, but you don't have to straighten it or constantly adjust the knot. Wear a bowtie for a while, then switch back to a regular tie. You'll wonder how you ever put up with that thing flipping and flopping around! A bowtie + suspenders looks great. I like to throw on a cardigan or a dress vest to make a complete outfit.

Alton's double loop is the key, that is the step I keep getting messed up on in other bow tie directions, this way is so much easier!!!

Alton - love the video, but where do you get those ties with the buckle? All the ones I seem to find have a nutty sizing scheme, that isn't even the same from tie to tie! Looking forward to seeing more!

Why aren't there more of these videos!? Mr. Brown, your content is always very informative as well as hilariously entertaining. Well done, sir. I'll be watching Good Eats while we all wait for more uploads. Thank you.

Well, JCPenny did not have any diamond tips so I had to settle. Next time. Now let me say that this particular method is the best way to tie a bow tie. It was a frustrating two hours, but only because I tried to do it with a tee shirt on. Put on a collared shirt and try it that way, makes all the difference helping to keep the knot tight. The majority of videos instruct one to tuck it into the loop behind the bow, but I couldn't get it that way. Like most Alton Brown tips, this one rocks! 4 stars!

+William Sherwin Fortunato Funny but very true. If some tried that with a bow tie, it would either come undone or do nothing at all.

P.S.  Where can a new Bow tie collector score a cool rack like is behind you (and do you have a favorite BT source?  Have you considered selling Alton signature BT's at you shows?  Come back to Portland, ME with a collection!)
John Chapman (3 years ago)
Better living through Alton Brown.  Your pretzel recipe has made me (locally) famous...your bow tie lesson has made me... well... almost AltonAwesome.  After watching the video a couple of times, I decided to pop over to my local mans warehouse and pick out some ties for a get together for friend who was having a soiree at the Marriott in Annapolis.  Saturday evening, I donned my best coat, new fancy checkered bow tie and headed downstairs to the bar for pre-dinner cocktails.  I had only been a bowtie man for FIVE minutes and as I stepped off the elevator a lovely lady immediately commented that she LOVED my bow tie!  (And then turned to her significant other and suggested HE were one).  It was a half win.  I strutted to the bar and had a fabulous time knowing I was the second coolest guy on the planet courtesy of Alton the Fabulous.

Nope, nope, nope. Could not get this to work for me. The pinch created in step four prevents the knot from adjusting as step 5 requires. Maybe you will have more luck. I'm done trying.

Bow ties ARE cool... when I went to my first dining in (a VERY traditional military dinner) I was the Junior Officer in the ward room, and I was wearing a tied bow tie, not a clip-on... after the meal, a more senior LT addressed the president of the mess recommending I be fined because of my crooked tie.  When the president of the mess asked if I had anything to say for myself, I replied "I will pay whatever fine you think appropriate,as long as the LT can do THIS" as I untied my tie. a hush fell over the room, and everyone left me alone for the rest of the night (Naval officers are notorious for wearing clip ons)

You've gone through the trouble to dress yourself sharply, an ode to your sincerity and professionalism. Then you decide to throw a guffaw in that plan by wearing a bow tie. You must realize irony has no place in this uniform, and if not worn with an ironic sense, then it is worn simply because you believe it was the right choice. It is not ever the right choice. A Google intern, maybe. The rest of us, no. *unemployed and posting from bed in underwear*
