Alternative Strategies

If you do find learning to tie your school tie difficult then there are other things you can try:

  • Use clip on or elastic ties.

  

  • Ask someone to tie your tie for you the first time. To take your tie off just loosen it and slip it over your head. Now you can slip it on over your head and tighten it up.
  • You might need some help with this strategy. Get someone to tie your tie as normal. Cut apart the back of the tie which would be under the collar. Sew Velcro onto both sides next to where you cut, like in the picture. Now you can use the Velcro fastening to put it on or take it off.
