Every cowboy needs a string tie. It's easy to make your perfectly even, every time.

If nothing says cowboy like a great pair of boots, the next needed accessory has got to be the western string tie. Here’s a simple way to easily and quickly accent your western wear.

First drape the tie around your neck with one side hanging about four inches longer than the other.

Take the long end and cross it over the short end.

Now, cross the long end under the short end, creating a loop.Be careful to keep the loop a little loose.

Next, take the long end underneath the short end to make the center loop.

Take the long end around the short end and through the center loop.

Now just square it off and tighten it to your liking. Yeehaw!.
