Most of us know how to wear a tie, but if you don't put one on very often, when it comes to high-pressure moments - like a job interview or a wedding - it's amazing how quickly you can be all thumbs.

Here's a five-step guide to getting it right, and remember, clip-ons are for serial killers.

STEP ONE

Put the tie around your neck, placing the wide end on your right side.

Position your tie so the wide end is near your belt and the narrow end is halfway up.
