When I started medical school one of the tutors gave us a long list of things that were in/appropriate to do when on the hospital wards, which finished with "and don't wear a full Windsor knot". When someone ventured to ask why he stated flatly "because they're bloody ugly".
I was brought up to tie a half Windsor, I remember a post from someone else here saying that when he was in school the FIH was reserved for special ed kids who couldn't quite cope with anything else. Having said that I now often tie a FIH or double FIH, just depends on the tie or how I'm feeling. I don't do full Windsors personally but it can be done well.
