The Quick and Easy Buie Knot | How to Tie a Tie

Hello, hello, hello…

Well, we’ve done it again here at

Ben, the owner of, has introduced the Buie Knot, named after a tie-tying legend who happens to be Ben’s Dad: Dewey Buie. This is the man from whom Ben gets his style, the man who always liked to sport a nice tie with a classic, checkered Fedora.

A beautiful thing about the Buie Knot is it can be tied in less than 10 seconds (even us Millennials can make time for that). The world record to tie a Full Windsor knot, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, is 12.91 seconds by Alastair Galpin. The Buie Knot is a variation of the Half Windsor and with a little practice you can easily beat the world record.

Next time you are in a hurry to look good, grab a tie, do the Buie knot and then teach someone else.

Check out the video "How to Tie a Tie: The Buie Knot" how to do it.

It’s simple, it’s easy, and it looks good…
