How to Tighten a Self-tie Bow Tie with a Slider

  1. Grab a tape measure and get your neck size.
  2. Add 19 inches (48 cm). That’s the length you need from the bow tie's end to the slider.
  3. Slide it to the right spot.
  4. Tighten the first simple knot until it’s snug.
  5. Check the fit.
  6. If it’s loose, the bow tie might be too long for your neck size.
