How to Tie a Bow Tie

1. Put the bow tie under your collar. Ensure that the two ends are of equal length.
2. Cross the ends. The right end should be on top.
3. Push the now-left end through the hole you've just created.
4. Pull it through, and once again ensure that the two ends are of equal length.
5. Fold the right end over itself. The loop should be pointing left.
6. Use your right hand to hold the loop in place while you use your left hand to place the left end over the loop and through the hole.
7. Gently pull the left loop through the hole. Be sure that you don't pull it too far, as it will come undone if you do.
8. Adjust as necessary. Tug at the ends and readjust to tighten.

Wear one and you assume the mantle of the nerdy, intelligent, socially awkward yet surprisingly cool student. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy; because you're treated that way, you begin to feel that way yourself. Use with caution.
