What is the best tie knot? - Page 4

post #46 of 102

My preference is half windsor.  I've used the FIH for years until just recently - don't like the long, bent shape.  Windsor is too bulky.  Half windsor is a nice medium, symmetrical and not too big.

Wow. That knot disgusts my inner stylist, but appeals to my inner mathematician.

First attempt at a trinity. I will use the knot for my lecture tomorrow. Its easy to tie, viz. double Winsor with the thin end and loop it through the last knot ... very hard to get even close to the picture above. I prefer square bow ties.

Casual shirt only (High and Mighty), with RL knitted cashmere/linen top and the tie is a printed silk Monet from the Barnes Collection, Philly.

If you have any dog poop around the yard, just string it from your neck - it would achieve the same effect confused.gif

;) Its a first attempt... bit like getting a thick square-end bow tie right first time (impossible).

Thanks for the above diagrams ... helpful

Tie knot of the day:

Also, I actually love the look of FIH and half windsor with a wide spread or cutaway collar. Most people I know hate that look, and religiously follow the "Wide collar = Big tie knot" rule.

I am really liking the pratt knot thanks to this thread.

How is the Pratt any better than the Half Windsor? I've been tying the latter since I was 3 years old, and I can't think of any reason why I'd tie a Pratt instead...

And also, since when has a Half Windsor been a "big knot"? If you tie it tightly in the right place on any half-decent tie, it comes out perfectly small. I can't be arsed to work it out accurately, but I doubt it is more than 20% larger than an FIH.

In fact, in this picture, it looks smaller...

I personally never had luck with the windsor, making it look the way I like. The pratt, on the other hand, seems to look great every time and is very very simple.

I can tie the FIH in my sleep because I learned it as a schoolboy.

 

Recently tried the Pratt knot, and I liked the result, but was almost disturbed by its simplicity.

I agree, the four in hand is the most stylish knot.

 

I really like the thin fih like Michael Douglas wore it as Gordon Gekko in this picture.

Really not trying to be mean here, but you wore that in public?
