Full Answer

Pull the longer end through the loop created between the tie and the wearer's neck. Adjust the tie with the longer end covering the shorter end. Many wearers choose to secure the tie with a decorative pin for a bit of added panache.

Tying an ascot is very similar to the actions taken when tying a four-in-hand necktie knot although the final appearance is a bit more formal.
