Our cravats are cut in such a way that you can tie them in two styles: Traditional or Scrunch/Ruche tie.
Just follow our guidelines below for either style.
|1. Drape the cravat around your neck, longer end on your right.||2. Cross the longer end over the shorterend, to your left.||3. Take the longer end back underneath the shorter end.||4. Wrap longer end over the top again to your left.|
|5. Take the longer end up through the neck loop. Next, either follow step 6 or 7, depending which style you choose.||6. For a 'Traditional' look: Fold down the longer end over the knot, adjust fit with the shorter end and fix top end in place with a cravat pin.||7. For 'Scrunch' or 'Ruche' tie, omit step 6. From step 5, bring the longer end down through the knot loop to get that 'scrunched-up' effect.||8. Adjust fit with the shorter end (underneath). Make sure the knot is loose-ish to get the best effect.|
