Tie knot that's classic and looks simple

There's way too many tie knots out there to try so here's a recommendation based on how I tie my ties. The instructions may seem, probably are, complicated but once you get the hang of it you should fly through it.

So here goes:
  1. Bring tie over your shoulder with wide end to your right
  2. Bring wide end to your left crossing over the narrow end
  3. Bring wide end underneath narrow end, through the middle of the loop and to front
  4. Bring wide end of the tie to your right, around the back to the front, through the middle of the loop to the back
  5. Bring wide end from back to your right loosely around the front to your left, back underneath
  6. Bring wide end from the back through middle of loop to front underneath loose front
  7. Pull wide end toward bottom to tighten knot at same time create a dimple using your index finger
  8. Bottom of the wide end should come at least 2 inches below your belly button

End result should look something like this (note the dimple and length of tie). And BTW - when tied correctly the knot should come undone by pulling on the ends of the tie.
