I'm a big fan of the Pratt knot

the Merril Hoge?

I think the FIH is the most stylish tie knot.  However, I also use the Pratt if I can't get a good dimple on a particular tie.

This one for sure.

 

Also known as the English Footballers' knot. Simple measurement of "its not wide enough until its the width of your head".

Double Windsor ... same as the quintuple Windsor (pictured in the first part of the thread) without the final half-hitch knot. It is traditionally a formal knot, but I just like it.

 

Much more practical for standard tie lengths than the Q-Windsor, but needs much more precision and time than e.g. half-Windsor.

 

I suspect there overlapping nomenclature here?

FIH = half Windsor?

Pratt = full Windsor?

I think the full Windsor is a good power knot and looks sharp with a spread collar. It can look a bit self serious so a half Windsor or FIH is better if you want to be a little more casual easy going.

Btw, Is there a name for the rediciusly large knot Merril Hoge ties?

Windsor, half-windsor and four-in-hand all get regular play, depending on the particular shirt and tie in question.

I'd go with you not having any clue what you're talking about. Maybe you should go back to the basics.

Easy let me explain:
Edward VIII, fashion icon of tie knots, including FIH: married an American, triggering a constitutional crisis, leaving UK bereft of a leader on the rise of the third Reich.
My point was there are errors (of nomenclature) and marrying Americans.

His father, George V, invented the Windsor knot.

One of our Presidents coined a saying: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt." Not so much a style icon though.
