Just when I thought I was done posting about how to tie a bow tie, Alton Brown made a bow tie tutorial video. And it’s great.

This is a notable video for a few reasons.

  1. He uses a different technique than I learned when I taught myself. I tried Brown’s method and found it worked very well.
  2. He delves into the different styles of bow ties and who was known for sporting them.
  3. He discusses the the easiest and quickest methods (there are two, it turns out) to figure out how to get the length of your bow tie just right, which is good information to have (there’s a little math involved).

And if all that doesn’t pique your interest, he drops the phrase “bow curious,” which was pretty fantastic.

So check out the video above or visit Alton’s site to learn more.
