That is one consideration. However, another thing is that most of the time, you'll see the tiny knot on very tall and sequoia necked (usually very overweight) people. They need a ton of tie length to go around the neck and for the tie to reach the belt. Therefore, the knot ends up being tied on the very narrow part of the tie resulting on the micro 4IH.
