Spoo does 4IH so well they almost look like Windsor knots.
I know I am in the minority but 4IH is the knot of choice for bagboys at the grocer and of the masses of men who are FORCED to wear suits but hate them. I just can not find any love for the knot. I guess I find the less than symmetric knot on an impeccable suit and shirt to strike me like a odd colored fender on a Ferrari. I don't see that and think, "impeccable automotive craftsmanship and look they screwed up one fender for a bit of sprezzatura". I think, "what a fine crafting of an automobile but it is a shame they don't know how to paint".

“It was tied with a Windsor knot. Bond mistrusted anyone who tied his tie with a Windsor knot. It showed too much vanity. It was often the mark of a cad.”

JB disagrees with you.

Windsor knots are awful. Even their namesake didn't tie them (he used half-windsors with a wide tie). A FIH that looks like a windsor is a poorly tied FIH.

FIH's done well are amazing. But FIH as they are often done in the wild are reminiscent of bag boys, movie theater employees, and office grunts.

Spoo said that he does it the same as Mark Cho in this video. The whole set by The Armoury guys is pretty great.

Whoa. What? Wait...

IS that a 4IH?? That doesn't quite look like what I do..

I believe it's a Knize knot* (and there's another name for it that I'm forgetting). It's what I use, unless the tie is too thick for it, in which case I use a FIH.

That's because it's not a Four-in-Hand; it's a Knize knot.

 

So Spoo doesn't use FIH after all then... that solves one mystery.

 

Edit: ditto, Mr Six.
